I could be wrong, but I believe that the main reason why Chadds Ford needs a full time person to manage our affairs is to maintain a position at the grant trough. In other words, we need to keep our hand out for taxpayer money even though we are one of the wealthiest townships in the state.Where is the fairness of asking a blue collar worker in, for example, Scranton for a handout simply because the stalwarts in our new $1.2 million township building have no courage to do what is right by tightening our belts and asking local citizens to be in charge of our own financial destiny?

We have elected people who claim to be opposed to big, intrusive government, but spend tax money like Socialists. Enough is enough, and I can't wait for the next election to get rid of these drunken sailors.
