We’re attuned to hearing stories about polluted water, land, and air when someone sounds the alarm about visible pollution we can see with our naked eyes.

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!

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…Continue
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.
