Letter: Proud of Kampf’s local focus

Pin It

To The Editor,

letters1I am very happy that Warren Kampf is my State Representative because he does a lot for the Borough of Phoenixville. Of course I am impressed and approve of his bipartisan work in Harrisburg on big issues ranging from education to government reform, but I am more grateful for what he does here at home. Not only is he a member of many local groups dedicated to improving our lives here in Phoenixville, he is also deeply involved in the execution of state and local policies.

As someone who commutes for two hours a day, Warren’s efforts to repaving our roads are a welcome relief, especially Pawlings Road, Route 30, and Valley Forge Road. Most importantly for the residents of Phoenixville was finishing the roadwork on Route 23 crossing the Pickering Dam Bridge. It is well known that Rep. Kampf went to PennDOT and pushed them to get that bridge open long before it was scheduled (and before the school year began). While he purposefully didn’t seek public recognition, local residents knew it was Warren Kampf who pushed hard for the oversight meetings that kept that project moving forward. Rep. Kampf also pushed the Paoli Transit Center project past its initial conceptual stage where it had languished for almost twenty years; because of his dedication, construction on this project began this summer and hopefully will continue into the next year.

Warren was also instrumental in securing funding for our historical and cultural sites in Phoenixville, such as when the Phoenixville Library needed help with their renovations. He also managed to acquire state funding for the Colonial Theatre on Bridge Street to complete their expansion. Due to these reasons above, I believe that Warren has earned our vote and another two years in Harrisburg!
