    • Our town doesn’t have a mayor and I’m sure nobody is going to put me on the township board anytime soon.  I wouldn’t make any changes though, we‘re doing just fine as we are.

    • Our little incorporated village would be an interesting place to be mayor. I’d say yes, and the first thing I would do is re-route the bus route so it serves the commuter railroad and gives people another way to go to get to where they have to get to, work, school, physicians, shopping. And allow the smaller vans to run routes straight to the connection points because too often there are people waiting half an hour or more for the regular buses which on the weekend stop running at 8pm on Saturdays and 6pm (which really sucks!) on Sundays.

    • Hmmmm??? Do I get a driver??? Sorry cheeky moment.
      Yes I would. Because I wouldn’t want to be reelected so I’d do some of the harder less popular choices.
      Then I’d decorate lol

      I wouldn’t have that job here for a million dollars. I do like our mayor, though. He was mayor a couple of terms ago and we‘re glad he’s back.

    • @Neicy, we have no mayor because technically we are not even a town.  We‘re 100 people living in one corner of our township. Keeps our taxes low.  :)

    • It depends on your point of view I guess.  I like it, but some people move here and cannot stand the fact that we don’t have sidewalks and that everyone knows absolutely EVERYTHING about you.  There are no secrets in a town this small.  And few jobs to keep the kids here.

    • I would take it!  Our town is in the midst of major riverfront development right now.  WE offer so many recreational activities in our city but with the present government (city council...planning commission.etc.) our city tends to be very traditional looking.  It’s well manicured...strict laws on how stores, businesses are built or the way they look..how signs are presented...etc.  I would like to see our city become a little more artsy looking...have more small local restaurants downtown with outside tables ...and be more of a dog friendly city. But for the most part...I love my city and what it has to offer. We have a lot of people who move here from up north because of what it has to offer and the weather.

    • No I would not.  I do attend the town hall meetings and vote for all people running.  Where we live I believe it’s about 1,300 - 1,500 people on the Island and the elders who have been there for YEARS are so set in their ways and the younger people want to make changes.  It’s a constant battle.  But hey, who every said politics is a  popularity contest?

    • Yes, because our township needs some re-vamping.

      They tend to focus on matters that to me are trivial...like brand new trash cans, WOW!!...that certainly makes up for some of the vandalism that goes on around here.

      Also, we live off of a major road which gets lots of traffic..but there are very few stop signs or traffic lights..the speed demons can do what ever they want and get away with it...big deal, so every once in a while they put a speed machine on a street..Wippee!!

      In this township and possibly in the state of PA, officers can not set up speed traps or radar to catch these road warriors who are coming in from either Philadelphia or further out in the suburbs making their way into the city.

      Heck yeah, I would run!
