The Advantages of a Better Community: Strong institutional foundations: schools, churches, organizations

The Advantages of a Better Community: Strong institutional foundations: schools, churches, organizations

Most historians agree that the fabric of any society is stronger when the institutions in that society are healthy and vibrant.  I personally believe that as the institutions go, so goes the whole community.  Our schools, churches and organizations must serve as our foundations, and here in Coraopolis as in other cities and towns, that has always been the case.  We have both history and opportunity here today. Greater involvement and commitment must be a consideration, for all of us. If not in a school, church, or club, then in some other way. The increase in community good and measurable progress rarely happens from a single person, but in groups of people – and groups with common goals and values. 

The Advantages of a Better Community: Forward-Thinking Planning

The Advantages of a Better Community: Forward-Thinking Planning

I may be the only official candidate for mayor but our campaign is just getting started.  Forward-thinking planning is essential. Signs of forward-thinking planning are visible, from an updated borough headquarters to recreational areas to building renovations. These will serve us very soon, but will also serve future generations. Technology, greenspaces, infrastructure, clean water, business-friendly management, strength in public safety and education, and community networking – these are the hallmarks of cities and towns who are thinking ahead. And while we acknowledge that we’re not getting top marks in each and every area yet, I am convinced we will.  There are so many of you committed to seeing this through.  Keep your eyes out for more signs of forward-thinking in the months to come – I’m committed to them!
