About Philadelphia City Council
The Philadelphia City Council, the legislative body of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, consists of ten members elected by district and seven members elected at-large. The council president is elected by the members from among their number. Each member’s term is four years, and there are no limits on the number of terms a member may serve.
Former Mayor Bill Green once called City Council “the worst legislative body in the free world.”
