Thank you to everyone that came out to vote in the election on Tuesday. What started out as a beautiful fall day in our borough turned to truly nasty weather by the time the polls closed.

I wish my opponent, Jim Glenn, great success in his new role on council. I hope that many of…See More

"United for Ridley Park" is a collection of both Democrat and Republican residents who want to end the deception and strong-arm politics that have been running Ridley Park for far too many years. …

Posted by Jim Butt on October 21, 2017 at 5:30am 8 Comments
