SLICK DADDIES

Our forefathers were kind of slick, weren't they? Very intelligent men. I don't think per say they wanted to get rid of taxes, they just wanted to find a way to collect the taxes for themselves and keep it from going across the ocean to the British. So they got us to get rid of the British.

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. (Special thanks to my sister, shown below, who braved the worst of the weather with me.)

While the result wasn't a win myself or most of democrat team, I am deeply grateful to each of the 950 people that voted for me. I wish my opponent, Jim Glenn, great success in his new role on council. I…

In response to State Representative Miccarelli's recent letter to all Ridley Park residents I want to say; "Mr. Miccarelli, stop meddling in Ridley Park Politics and do what you were supposed to be doing as our State Representative! Start securing monies for your constituents and stop taking credit for the sound barriers."

"The Pot Calling the Kettle Black" - Low ball Ridley Park politics

Posted by Jared Brennan on October 27, 2017 at 8:30pm 10 Comments

I just received the Republican attack advertisement in my mail over the weekend - I’m not surprised.   I’m not surprised how low the Ridley Park Republicans will go in their attempt to stop the residents of Ridley Park from voting for councilors who are United for Ridley Park. 

"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. …
