Thank You Voters of Ridley Park

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…

Miccarelli Lies and These are Facts

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."

Nick, you continue to hide the Auditor's Report of the Borough's Budget that Ridley Park continues to overspend over a quarter of a millions dollars…

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

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. …

Parkers Before Party

When they say “Parker's before Party” what does it mean?

It’s about picking good, experienced, knowledgeable people to help manage our Borough, regardless of their political party affiliation.

It’s recognizing that being a Republican or a Democrat has little to do with whether your trash gets picked up reliably, if your street gets plowed in the winter, or if that bridge finally gets fixed.

It’s acknowledging that whether you…

Running stop signs near Ridley Middle School.

Nick Miccarelli Scared about November already

I saw the below post on Nick's Facebook page and when I replied to it, he had it deleted and removed.  So here is my reply that Nick didn't want you to see:

"Some councilors" on council as Nick proclaims:  Dan Broadhurst, Mike Gale, and myself voted for the 2017 budget, but what we wanted the residents to know was that there are concerns that are red flags to our "non- political" opinions. We never said the finances are in bad shape.  We know when we are borrowing from one…

Foxes and cats

Please don't let your cats run loose at night. Twice in the past two weeks I have heard cats crying and howling and later saw a fox in the area of Kenny St. and East Ridley Ave. Around one AM. The fox had not caught anything. But it is disturbing.........

As I recall, a few years ago Borough Council revised Codes and hired a Code Enforcement team so that, as President Berger stated "now we can move on these properties." This meant the Borough has capability to correct "code violations" involving private properties, and Berger intended to make it happen.  That was then; this is now...

Check out the accompanying photo.  This is the first thing one sees as one enters the Borough on Swarthmore Ave.

How many "Code Violations"…
