Running for Office in Ridley Park, dates to remember

"What comes around, goes around" applies to Ridley Park's would-be politicians this month as candidates for Ridley Park's Borough Council seats make their way to the faithful for signatures on their nomination petitions.  February 17 was the first day to circulate and file nomination petitions before March 10.  Each candidate is required to have a minimum or 10 "valid signatures." Artists in the trade tell me each candidate aims for 30 because protests over signatures in Ridley Park's are legendary.

It's not necessary to be connected to any political party to run for Borough Council; only a desire to make Ridley Park a better community. You can run as an "Independent" candidate for Borough Council or as a  endorsed candidateby the Republican or Democrats.
