Tired of Springdale shenanigans

As a taxpaying Springdale resident for 20 years, a mother and a neighbor, I find it sickening to again see our borough in the newspaper because our council members can't get along. To see our new police chief facing accusations on the front page is growing old, just as is seeing our police department in the newspaper.

Springdale needs to be rejuvenated. The town needs new businesses and a police department that cares about this community. The department should be allowed to focus on Springdale without fear about what council will pull next.

I'm in my 40s with one child having graduated from Springdale High School and another soon to graduate. I'd like to stay in my family home, but I'm considering listing it this summer.

Instead of repelling its residents, Springdale council should put aside petty arguments and power plays and develop a plan to attract good people to our town. At its current rate, council is only charting a course for the continued devaluation of our community.

Wake up, council, and do the right thing! We have a new mayor and police chief. It's time you start working together for the good of those who put you in office.
