"Philadelphia Is On The Move," Mayor Says of His First Year
The beginning of Wilson Goode's administration
Despite the title, the MOVE organization is not mentioned once in this review of Mayor Goode's first year in office. While the city had not had any significant clashes with MOVE in almost five years, the group had not gone away in the years following Officer Ramp's death. Later investigations showed that Goode was briefed on the threat of MOVE when he took office in 1984. This interview sheds some light on Goode's level of preparation before he approved the bombing.
