As 2018 draws to a close, it’s a good time to look back on the last year, to take stock of accomplishments and missed opportunities. Philly’s certainly had plenty of both this year. (Will anything ever top the Eagles' Super Bowl win?)

It’s also a good time to look to the days ahead, to be optimistic about what the future might hold. The Inquirer’s Opinion department has spent the last few weeks asking people from around the region: What is the most important change the Philadelphia region needs to see in 2019? Our list includes the Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins, Phillies owner John Middleton, City Councilwoman Helen Gym, Children’s Hospital CEO Madeline Bell, and others. But we want to hear from you, our readers, about what changes you’d like to see in our area next year.

You can tell us in the form below or email us at It can be a something as big as overhauling the way our public transit system works or advocating for legislation to better support workers, or something as small as suggesting a statue of everyone’s new favorite mascot, the inimitable Gritty.

Be creative, be aspirational, be as serious or as silly as you want.
