The curfew whistle that sounds faithfully at 10:00 every night throughout Coraopolis is one of my favorite sounds. It is a reminder that we want our streets to be safe, secure and prepared. Our police, firefighters, paramedics and other emergency and safety personnel work hard to keep us safe. We should thank them, along with the military veterans who are serving us, and have served us, so faithfully and courageously.
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!
