First off I want to give KUDOS to the New Beginnings Church Youth Group for VOLUNTEERING and cleaning up a few locations in Middletown. Your hard work has not gone un-noticed.
As we approach the Primary Election Day May 21st, I encourage everyone who is registered voter to get out and vote in the primaries. Your vote does count! Middletown is currently sitting at a cross roads. Many people are at odds with our current borough council and quite honestly I am one of those people. I will be voting for new people to be seated on borough council. I feel we need a new direction; we need to IMPROVE this great town we live in. All i have seen is Middletown being ripped apart and nothing positive happening.
Yes you can say this council has lowered the electric rate woo whoo, I have saved $20 bucks a month on mine. But it has been at the cost of departments closing, our 87 year old library being placed on a slippery financial slop themselves and numerous persons losing their jobs.
We need a council that can not only fix the problems we have but also move forward with new ideas and development projects. Four years have gone by and nothing has improved.
We need to IMPROVE the communication between the borough and the residence, IMPROVE our parks system, IMPROVE our police department, IMPROVE our tax base, IMPROVE the aesthetic look of the town, etc.
So on May 21st I am asking you to get out and vote and vote for new. Vote for IMPROVEMENT.
