Smart Development: On Council, I will focus on a community-driven, 10-year strategic development plan to curb over-development in Middletown. This will reduce congestion and retain more open space to preserve the features that brought many residents to Middletown in the first place.

Community Safety: Once elected, I will proactively engage with Township residents and other governmental institutions to address safety concerns and risks (like the Mariner East pipelines and the numerous potholes) impacting our quality of life and property values in the Township.

Transparency and Community Engagement: On Council, I will engage with the community on important Township initiatives and get feedback from residents. I will be transparent on the issues impacting the area so that residents fully understand Council’s decision-making process.

As a Council candidate, my top three priorities are resident driven decision-making, community safety, and protecting our quality of life.

Council should solicit resident input on all issues BEFORE they develop a plan or policy. Open exchange reveals what projects might pose a risk to safety and quality of life, and different perspectives help the best solution emerge. This applies to pipelines, traffic issues, real estate development, accessible open space and more. As an HOA president who dealt with the Sunoco pipeline, I know good two-way communication is important. I also bring people together for community change through my job at the PA Humanities Council. I know investing time in communication will save us money and pain in the long run.

For too long a small group of people have run our town, listening only to each other. It’s time to have more perspectives on the Council. Our Democratic candidates will listen, and think strategically about ALL the issues facing Middletown.

Continue our passive transportation work in linking Middletown Township through an active trail system by connecting the soon to be constructed Middletown Trail from the new Wawa SEPTA station to the Granite Run Promenade to the trail head of the Chester Creek trail. Once to Granite Run we are working to connect the trail system to Ridley Creek State Park.

Ensure that any impact from Elwyn's land sell-off is in full consideration of preserving Middletown's characteristic open space along Route 352 and to minimize visual impact from their work.

Continue to keep our Township Government open and transparent, whether it's clear explanation of how we continue to not have to raise taxes, broadcasting Council meetings on the web or quickly responding to residents inquiries.
