We, the undersigned, do hereby request that the statue of William Penn be removed from City Hall and placed on top of the Comcast Building upon its completion. Until such time as this request can be fulfilled, we ask that the effigy be suspended in a respectful manner from a crane above the aforementioned building until such a time as it may be safely placed upon the roof.

The reasoning behind this request is as follows:

I. A "gentleman's agreement," though unwritten into law, was struck as such that no building in the city of Philadelphia should rise above the statue of our statutory founder; this agreement was violated in 1987 by the building of One Liberty Place and has been unretained since. By moving the statue, we will once more be honoring this agreement.

II. The moving of this statue will be both culturally and economically beneficial to the City of Philadelphia and surrounding areas. Statistically, sports championships have proven a successful means to bing both business and additional cultural into an urban atmosphere that is teetering so close to its potential Golden Age such as Philadelphia. The act of moving the statue should break the unassailable, irrifutible evidence of the "Curse of William Penn," once more allowing our municipally-branded professional athletic associations to thrive thereby attracting further attention to and benefitting the city of Philadelphia.

With these articles in consideration, we, the undersigned, having given due consideration, and under no duress, do hereby endorse this plan.
