Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
When they say “Parker's before Party” what does it mean?
It’s about picking good, experienced, knowledgeable people to help manage our Borough, regardless of their political party affiliation.
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 voted for Trump or Clinton doesn’t matter for leading Ridley Park. Because our town is managed by our neighbors. Volunteers willing to stand up, give a few hours each week, and make sure your tax dollars actually make this a great place to live -- whether you’re on the verge of retiring or about to raise a family.
Sure, there are issues we disagree on, but we can probably all agree that we want the people we vote for right here in Ridley Park to put our needs first, not the needs of their party heads in Media.
We just want to know that we’ve got a great police force protecting us, that we’re thinking about how to create more options for dining and shopping, and that the potholes are getting filled without breaking the bank or cracking open our wallets.
This isn’t about photo ops.
It’s about picking people who will show up prepared, who will roll up their sleeves, and listen, instead of shouting people down at monthly meetings.
It’s about not being afraid to show you the budget, instead of getting their friends to attack you on social media.
Our leaders are not above us, they are alongside us.
We’ve been able to put our differences aside to come together United for Ridley Park.
Sure, we might be Blue, or Red, But we’re Parkers first. And we’re in it for all 7,023 of us.
