ALBURTIS MAYOR

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 by Debbie Galbraith dgalbraith@tnonline.com in Local News

We asked the candidates the following question - What do you hope to accomplish as mayor of Alburtis in the next four years?

Democrat Kathleen Palmer

My goal is to create a community focused on the future of our Borough – its infrastructure; its businesses; and its residents. To establish community involvement for the betterment of all who reside here. To ensure the health and safety of every single person who lives or works here – by keeping up with technology; grants and programs that are available. To strive in educating our youth about their involvement in the community, after all, they will forge the future of the Borough of Alburtis. I feel my commitment and dedication to Alburtis has been proven and as Mayor, remains the only item on my agenda. It is important that we keep transparency a priority so that all residents have knowledge of the workings of the Borough of Alburtis.

Republican Susan Brown

If elected Mayor, I will promote unity and communication in our community. With so much division in the world, we need to be united, to promote a strong and healthy environment for the people of Alburtis and to demonstrate to our young people what can be achieved by working together. I will be a representative and a voice for the residents of Alburtis. I will encourage communication not only with the police department and our elected officials, but also with the various groups and organizations we have within our community to generate a sense of unity and purpose.

In the next four years, I hope to maintain the high standards of the Alburtis police, help every resident feel they are part of Alburtis, and establish a five-year plan for the Borough. Hopefully, the baseball field will be restored, the basketball court will be re-surfaced, sidewalks will properly terminated and maintained, and crosswalks will be safely marked. I hope to bring the community together by effectively advocating for all residents of Alburtis.
