The Phoenix asking for your help with questions for council candidates

I try to steer clear of political talk on this blog but, with the elections right around the corner, I thought this was worthy of a mention. In today's Phoenix, they have an article asking for readers to submit questions they would like answered by those running for Borough Council.

---
What are the most important issues in Phoenixville right now? From the budget to garbage to crime to parking to anything else including blue lampposts, what should borough council candidates be discussing?

The residents of Phoenixville are invited to submit questions to The Phoenix that will then be posed to the candidates. The public will have until Tuesday, Oct. 30, to submit questions via mail, e-mail or dropping off at the newspaper office.

The Phoenix will narrow down all the submitted questions to the top five most interesting, relevant and fair queries. Those will then be forwarded to all the candidates. Each candidate will also be allowed one open-ended statement.

An article with all the candidates’ responses will be published in The Phoenix and online at www.PhoenixvilleNews.com on Monday, Nov. 5, the day before the election.

Questions can be mailed to The Phoenix, Candidate Questions, PO Box 689, Phoenixville, PA 19460; e-mailed to editor@phoenixvillenews.com or dropped off downtown at the newspaper office at 225 Bridge Street.

I encourage all taxpayers to submit a question similar to the following for discussion:

Why are the current Borough Manager, Finance Director and Council President hiding the 2008 budget estimations from both Council and the public? If there is nothing to hide, what is the estimated tax increase?

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
