We are lucky to not only have proximity to parks, trailheads, waterways and wonderful greenspaces, we have them right here! Tomorrow, we will be showcasing Shelley Jones Park for a final Meet the Candidates event. Light food and beverages will be provided, and you can meet some of candidates who are on the ballot this coming Tuesday – all candidates have been invited and are welcome. The event will run noon-2:00. If you can’t make it, perhaps you’ll be able to visit one of our own parks or trails that you’ve not previously seen. They’re just one more of our advantages here in Coraopolis.
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!
