Letter: On Borough Council, an apology is in order

To The Editor, The following is an open letter to my colleagues on the Kennett Square Borough Council: Dear Doug, Jamie and Geoff, On January 4th, 2016, all four of us voted to appoint LaToya Myers to an open seat on Borough Council. Since then, she has served with distinction, especially on the Finance and Chief of Police Search Committees, where we have seen her fight hard for...

To The Editor, Election Day is fast approaching on Tuesday November 7th, and we would encourage you all to exercise your constitutional right to vote! This is an important election within the Borough of Kennett Square as four of the seven seats on Borough Council will be decided. Quite frankly we think it is safe to say that the future direction of the Borough is at stake with this election. We...

Letter: Donze’s experience makes the difference in DJ race

To the Editor,   I completely agree with Mike McGann’s recent article, Mr. Iacocca is a very nice guy and community activist but we’re looking to elect our next district justice and need to do so carefully. As a licensed attorney and registered Democrat, I’m most concerned with putting the most qualified candidate on the bench.  Community activism should be applauded on all levels but in...

Letter: Keep ‘Indians’ but embrace true Native Americans’ history

To The Editor, Football season is just starting for the Unionville-Chadds Ford Indians. Parents and coaches shout “Go U” to the players.  Its catchy, but it struck me as odd that “Go Indians” is never heard.  Asking around it seems parents are shy about the school’s mascot. Reading between the “let’s not go there” responses I’ve gotten to the topic led me to believe many...

Letter: Trump message – it’s OK to be a bully

To the Editor, As this election season mercifully winds up, it was interesting to hear Melania Trump speak Nov. 3 in Berwyn.  Part of her message was about empowering children and women, and working to prevent put downs and bullying-an admirable goal.  The irony is that her husband is a textbook case of acting like a bully.  His overreaction to any criticism brings out the worst in him,...

Letter: Proud of Kampf’s local focus

To The Editor, I 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...

Letter: Republicans, you own this

To The Editor, Donald Trump and Secretary Hillary Clinton faced off their final debate, and once again Mr. Trump found new ways to embarrass the Republican Party – and those in the Chester County Republican Committee and their candidates who have continued to endorse him.      Send article as PDF   

Letter: New funding needed for Growing Greener

To the Editor:  Pennsylvania’s Growing Greener program has a proud history of success in protecting our water, conserving our natural lands, preserving our family farms and providing outdoor recreation.  However, much work still needs to be done in order to ensure future generations have access to clean water, locally-grown food and public parks, trails and recreational opportunities.  ...

Letter: We need Kampf’s fiscal discipline

To The Editor, We need State Representative Warren Kampf now more than ever, we need his fiscal discipline, we need his continued work to cut wasteful government spending and we need his leadership on budget priorities that match what his constituents want.  While we need him now, we should all be happy that he was there for us the last two years when there was a proposal to raise the income tax...

Letter: Aug. 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day

To The Editor: Drug overdose is a leading cause of accidental deaths in Pennsylvania. The rate of overdose deaths in the state has increased by 14% in recent years and is significantly higher than the national average. Government alone cannot fix what is wrong in society, but it does have an important role to play. The government can coordinate and connect systems so that there is less redundancy,...
