Posted by Michael S. Taddei on November 9, 2017 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Thank you to everyone that came out to vote in the election on Tuesday. What started out as a beautiful fall day in our borough turned to truly nasty weather by the time the polls closed. (Special thanks to my sister, shown below, who braved the worst of the weather with me.)

While the result wasn't a win myself or most of democrat team, I am deeply grateful to each of the 950 people that voted for me. I wish my opponent, Jim Glenn, great success in his new role on council. I…

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! Start securing monies for your constituents and stop taking credit for the sound barriers."

"The Pot Calling the Kettle Black" - Low ball Ridley Park politics

Posted by Jared Brennan on October 27, 2017 at 8:30pm 10 Comments

"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. …

It’s recognizing that being a Republican or a Democrat has little to do with whether your trash gets picked up reliably, if your street gets plowed in the winter, or if that bridge finally gets fixed.

It’s acknowledging that whether you…
