Ridley Park Repubicans Blame Away their Auditors Report

My campaign published the Republican majority's Auditor's report in our literature so the residents would know from the most informed, reputable, source, possible that financial irresponsibility is destroying Ridley Park.  Soon after, residents received literature in the mailboxes blaming the Democrats for misleading the facts.  The fact is both Democrats and Republicans and reporting the same bad numbers.  And, the fact is the overspending numbers are from the Republican Majority…

Ridley Park Borough Council Meeting - Controlled, Contrived

I was very concerned how the local Republican leader orchestrated our October Borough Council Meeting last night.  I'm a long time Ridley Parker and I never have seen a council meeting where the Republican Party Leader has free reign to show off his monetary influence.

I would like to see a true NON PARTISAN evaluation of Candidates based on individual qualifications, experience, and commitment to principles over "Party." 


That is the purpose of this blog.


For example, it is fine for a person to dislike "social media,"…
