Mayor Michael Nutter was drowned out by protesters and forced from the city council chambers yesterday (Thursday), when he attempted to deliver his yearly budget address. During the speech angry union protesters loudly heckled him, were blowing whistles, and displayed a number of depicting signs, one even suggesting the mayor resembles the clown Ronald McDonald.

Nutter has repeatedly said the city can’t afford packages offered by past administrations. Union officials insist the money is there. A spokesman for the mayor said the unions were unwilling to address benefit reform. The mayor’s office says it’s within its rights to appeal an arbitrator’s ruling on the firefighters’ contract.
