Being elected to Borough Council is an honor and a responsibility that should be taken very seriously.
We are asking to be given the opportunity to represent you on borough council. We understand the importance of serving everyone, regardless of political party. For example, you may laugh when we say potholes don’t have a party label but seriously, the job is to just fix them, not argue about them. That is how we will approach issues and concerns.
We don’t care what party you belong to…let’s just fix the problems! We will work alongside you to be problem solvers, whether it is a neighborhood concern or a town-wide issue. We are not single-issue candidates. We will be open to public comment and opinions that may differ from our own. It will be our job to do what is right for our residents.
There will always be areas for improvement, but it is also important to emphasize Morrisville’s positives. Morrisville is a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire. We need to be better at spreading that message. We also need a business-friendly council that encourages business development.
Concern about rising taxes and finding additional revenue is not new. The borough has struggled for years working to balance this. How do we generate additional revenue, reduce costs, hold the line on taxes, gain additional tax ratables? These are hard problems that will require creative approaches, cost savings, aggressive seeking of grants, and non-partisan cooperation. Borough Council has no control over costs and taxes for our school district, but we can be an advocate and support serious discussions.
We are ready to take on the challenges, solve problems creatively, and champion positive change for Morrisville.
