‚ÄčLiving in the 4th district means that Curtis Jones Jr represents me in the city council. He is the most formidable advocate for education and community development. He also grew up in Philadelphia and graduated from Overbrook High School and University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Government. He's a member of multiples committees and has served in various public and private sector positions for more than two decades. 

On October 12th 2011, city council voted upon a new curfew for the city. Councilman Curtis Jones Jr was for the new law. He claimed that not only will this stop flash mobs, as it has done in the past couple months, but it will decrease the amount of violent juvenile crime. The law was voted upon and is now set into law for 2 years. This law will fine parents if their children are out past curfew. However, it is said that not every person out past curfew will receive consequences, some will simply just be told to go home, which in the past has worked. To keep more police on patrol to watch out for curfews, it will cost the city about $56,000 a weekend.
