Thank you for the privilege of the past two months. We have much to do in the months and years ahead, and I can’t wait to get started. Community benevolence is leaving any and all of our anxiety or lost wagers at the doorstep, and walking full-long into a place of intent. We are a small town with typical small-town problems, but with the benefit of a team of caring citizens and leaders who are ready to seize the unique opportunities that face us. Let us all travel this road together. Onward. We have work to get done.
Thank you to the homes and businesses that have recently raised the bar in Coraopolis. A town like ours can, and will, see façade and structural improvements. We can access opportunities to collectively and intentionally make Coraopolis more beautiful. Let’s keep the momentum going. A can of paint and a bottle of Windex can go a long way. This week’s question is NOT about pointing to others, but about ourselves. What can YOU do different, and what will YOU commit yourself to improving your own space?
Someone asked me very recently “how do you plan on accomplishing all that you’re trying to do if you become mayor?” I quickly replied “with your help.” Because the circles of one life overlap the circles of another, a network gets built, and those who have each other in common begin to affect change. Or more simply put: kind and smart people of every walk of life need to come off the sidelines, and into the game. Coraopolis is abundant with opportunities for involvement and impact, and that will only continue in the years to come.
