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…

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

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

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.…
