"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. …

Work trucks on street

Does anyone know the rule for parking a work truck on the street? I've had a Comcast can out front of my home for 72 hours and this is not the first time. It's very frustrating because it not only takes up a spot in front of my home but it blocks my view when I back out of my driveway.

Ridley Park Borough Managers' Job Title vs. Ridley Park Borough Managers' Job

Electrical pole being held up by rope? Does PECO know?

The pole located on Ridley (E.Ridley) street across from the orange barriers on the bridge. 

I don't understand how our elected officials can ignore this issue for years.  Has it been three years now?   It can be seen from the windows of borough Hall.  If this was in front of my house I would call PECO and have it fixed.  This is at the corner where children cross to go to school and along the path to walk in and out of our town.  Can someone explain why an electrical pole is being…

Please Remember to Keep Your Hydrants Clear!

Hydrants buried under snow are a threat to public safety.  Firefighters shouldn't have to waste precious time during a fire,  first finding a hidden hydrant, and then digging it out for use.

After a major snowfall, the members of RPFD will go throughout the borough digging out hydrants to make sure that doesn't happen.  Remember, we're volunteers.  We do this…

Stay Safe through the Storm

Some reminders about safety through the storm:

If you have wires down and/or lose power (and let's all hope it doesn't happen!), call PECO's emergency number 1-800-841-4141 and stay away from any wires that are sparking, arcing, hanging, or on the ground.

While enjoying your fireplaces or using space heaters, please don't forget about carbon monoxide.  Our last three calls for CO in Ridley Park have turned out to be real emergencies with high levels of CO in the…

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've witnessed first hand how much power this one person has to orchestrate our Borough Council.

We heard his speech. How he repeatedly mentioned IBEW 98, his name, and how much money his union gives to Ridley…

Ridley Park: A Homey Enclave and Leave It To Beaver-ville

If Ridley Park were the first Philadelphia area community you had ever visited - a father's job interview at Boeing in the early 1960s - you are overtaken by remembrances of things past.

Realtor Nicole Ritchie describes the borough of Ridley Park as "a cluster of residential, commercial and industrial" parcels. Add proximity to Interstate 95 and a stop on…

Borough Letter Solicits Services

We received a letter in the mail yesterday from who appeared to the Borough of Ridley Park. The envelope and the letterhead say "Borough of Ridley Park," and the letter inside is signed by Ridley Park Mayor Hank Eberle.

What shocked me is this letter is a solicitation for services from the "Services Line Warranties of America."  I'm writing to ask if any other Ridley Park resident thinks it's a bit strange for the Mayor's endorsement on Borough Letterhead for outside services…
