Meet the Candidates: Manan Trivedi for Congress - 6th District

The following was sent in by Trivedi for Congress:

Election Day is this Tuesday, and everyone should get out and make their voices heard. Manan Trivedi is the Democrat running for Congress in the 6th District (which covers Phoenixville) against incumbent Congressman Jim Gerlach.

Trivedi is an Iraq War Veteran and primary care doctor who was born and raised just over in Berks County, where he and his wife are now raising their newborn daughter, Sonia. To read his full bio click here: http://www.trivediforcongress.com/about/

When asked why he is running for Congress, this is what he said: "Washington isn’t listening, and I share your frustration with it. I’ll fight to bring jobs back -- by giving tax cuts to small businesses, ending tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, and investing in clean energy manufacturing and infrastructure jobs. We can’t change Washington until we change who we send down there." To read about the issues he cares most about, click here: http://www.trivediforcongress.com/issues/

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
