Wolf vs. Legislature: High-profile votes, fights preview June showdowns in Pa.

HARRISBURG, Pa. >> June is crunch time in the state Capitol and the challenges in front of Gov. Tom Wolf are becoming clearer in the Democrat's first go-round with budget negotiations.

For Wolf, who took office in January, it will be perhaps the biggest test yet of his mettle, and an important sign of how successful he will be the rest of his term in persuading the state Legislature's huge Republican majorities to support his priorities.

Mayor Eberle - Crosses the line of decency at Council Meeting

A line was crossed while I was talking at Public Comment portion of tonight's Council meeting.  The Mayor made a derogatory and ignorant comment about me that he didn't think I would hear.  While I was actually talking about Code Enforcement , his comment,  that he thought was under his breathe was, " Not this ___ ing idiot again. "  The comment caught me totally of guard and, quite frankly, enraged me.  I want to apologize if I came across as "losing it" briefly.   I actually was so stunned at…See More

May council mtg.

I would just like to state how proud I am of Dan Broadhurst for speaking out. He always conducts himself in a respectful way during council mtgs, unlike some of the others.  I'm also very proud of the residents who make comments and had questions during the public portion of the mtg. Again, residents asking questions and council not providing answers. When will residents decide they've had enough of this? FULL TRANPARENCY IS NEEDED... With this council we'll never get it.See More

Ridley School District Taxes

Posted by Michael on May 16, 2015 at 9:43am 6 Comments

This week's Town Talk reported that there will be no tax increase for the Ridley School District budget. It also notes something very important: there really is.



A popular trend in recent years has formed where school districts across the nation, suffering from poor budgeting and skyrocketing costs, "make up" gaps in funding by creating arbitrary, innocuous fees that, over time, not only cost the tax payer more, but also pass a scary amount of control over our lives to the school… Continue

Ridley Park Residents Deserve Better- Why I am running for Council

Posted by Maripat King on May 13, 2015 at 10:00pm 1 Comment

I believe it's important to know who is running for Borough Council, and know what they believe in, and why they would ever want to pursue such a position.

I am Maripat King,  a third generation Ridley Parker. I chose to  purchase a  home in Ridley Park because it was a great place to grow up. Long summers at Ridley Park Swim Club led to friendships that remain strong to this day. I wanted my daughter Julia to have roots in a strong community, and grow up with her own great…

E. Ridley Ave. Potholes

Posted by Jerry Colonna on May 8, 2015 at 1:18pm 16 Comments

Today I went to Borough Hall about the potholes on E Ridley Ave.. Recieved no help, was told to call the state of Pennsylvania. Shouldn't the first course of action be to contact local government and let them proceed??? The potholes in question are dangerous, and deep enough that drivers are swerving into the other lane to avoid them.

Fewer Spammers, Less Spam, Still Spam

It's been a while since RPOL's been spammed but today it happened again.  Today's spammer correctly answered all our test questions, flawlessly completed a captcha, gave us a legitimate email address, and I let them inside our network - who knew Hanifa would act like Brahmi. Thanks to the RPOL member who dialed me on the phone we stopped Hanifa's episode within 6 minutes.…
