'Cassidy on leave'

Today's (5/10/07) Phoenix has an article saying "Barry Cassidy has been placed on administrative leave...". This is the latest chapter in an ongoing, and apparently worsening, relationship between Cassidy and the borough, in particular Borough Manager Anthony DiGirolomo. I am not going to get into my opinion on who is right or wrong but thought it should be mentioned as this leaves a lot of things up in the air. Short term, this certainly calls into question whether or not the weekend music festival that had been mentioned as a replacement for the F.A.M.E. festival will actually happen. It also brings a fair amount of uncertainty to the Summer Music Series which brings in hundreds, if not thousands of visitors into Phoenixville every Friday during the summer.

I, for one, hope that this can get resolved quickly and in everyone's best interests. To read the entire article, please see the link below.

Wow. Strife is always around, it seems. This isn't good news for the borough, yet there's so much momentum now that it's hard to imagine it would do anything worse than slow things down a little.
