Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
Mr. Williams did I "attack" you or did I just call it like I see it? You came to the council workshop and had two issues. One was the lights and the other was the back- up beeper. Mr. Verone said he would take care of both issues. You then came back to the podium with more issues and finally admitted that you wanted his business to be removed and that it was illegal, or something to that affect. I gave you an opinion that you didn't like, so I guess you call that an attack. That is your choice and opinion. You did say to me that you knew where I stood and that still holds true today. Mr. Verone has every right to own and operate a business in the business area there along the tracks. Let me give you the same advice that I gave Mrs. Kirsch the night of the workshop. The Harper's have been fighting with Mr. Verone for years and you and others are being brought into that "Hatfield vs. McCoy" feud. <--No pun intended Howard! When the borough receives emails from residents complaining about Mr. Verone's business and the Harper's lawyer is copied in on the emails, I do question the intent. Call me cynical. I am standing up for all residents of Ridley Park when I question the yearly dollars that are spent on lawyer and court fees over this propagated and intentional distraction (Hardware property) by the Harpers to fuel this feud.
In ending, Sue Murtha voted no and I declined to vote because I didn't agree with the process of hiring the manager, so all of council didn't agree on the hiring, just to make that clear.
