We did it! Thank you so much to everyone who played a part in last night's big win. We took nearly 43% of the vote in the three-way Republican primary for Chester Township Council. That's a result we can all be proud of, and it's what happens when you run a relentlessly positive, energetic, and hardworking campaign. On to November!
We're all in this together
When you think of all the people who have donated time and energy to Chester Township, Derek Moore and Mike Noll are at the top of the list. They have helped make this the special community we all love, and for that we're deeply grateful. I spoke with Derek and Mike and let them know that, if I'm able to give back to Chester Township a fraction of what they have given, it will be an enormous contribution. My sincere and total thanks to Derek Moore and Mike Noll for challenging me, preparing me for the job, and ultimately making me a better person. We're all in this together.
Let's make Chester beautiful again
If you have one of our signs in your yard or on a nearby street, please find time over the next couple days to remove it and leave it by your garage. We'd like to collect as many of our signs as we can. As a courtesy, let's also help the other candidates - especially Derek and Mike - collect their signs as well.
One of the benefits of a competitive primary election is that each candidate attracts new people to the process. It's an opportunity for us all to be a little more civic. If this campaign has encouraged you or a friend to be more involved, please consider attending tonight's Council meeting (Wednesday, June 7th). You'll get a sense of the hard work our mayor and Council are doing to make Chester Township such a great place.
We'll be staying engaged over the summer, but I also have some catching up to do - with my family, with my overgrown landscaping, and with my unpainted deck. So you won't see me at your door stoop any time soon. But it was a real trip and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you.
