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?

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions.
