Hey guess what? I'm on Borough Council!


Woo-hoo! I was elected into the position of our Borough Council on November 3rd. I am really excited about the possibilities over the next 4 years. Someday I will share with you all as to the passionate ideas I harbour in my heart and hope to have to come to fruition. I would truly like to make a difference, in our very own local community, without getting dragged down into the muck and mire of so many negative people in our community. We need positive things... we need positive things for our Senior Citizens, for our unemployed, for our youth. My hope is to work very hard over the next 4 years to try to address some of these issues. I truly believe by being on the council, that I will have contacts and the proper exposure I need in order to push ahead. I truly am excited. I will keep you all informed as to the ideas, my presentation of them, and the reception of them by my peers on the council.

I think I would first like to choose one project for two categories that weigh most heavily on my thoughts. Something for seniors, and something for the youth. I would like to work on research, prepare presentations and plans for how to get things started and to continue them throughout my term and beyond. I pray every day that the Lord will guide me, to keep me humble, to keep me listening to His desires and plans for what He wants me to do. I have some very specific ideas as to what I would like to try out. However, I want to do the best job I can do... and accomplish what He intends to be best for all concerned. I am not looking for glory for myself. I am looking for what is best for those in the community that I desire to serve... for Him.

Hugs to all,
Penny Sue
