As you know our polling place at the Hillside Community Center is for sale and hoping to move to a new location in Eagleville near the Township building. They were hoping to have broken ground already and to be moving into the new place sometime this year. Unfortunately fuel tanks were discovered underground at the new site, and it’s believed that the ground is contaminated, requiring a lot of money to remediate. I’m still getting to the bottom of it, but for now – we’re staying where we are.

More information will be posted as we get updates.

    

 

Congratulations are in order for endorsed Republican candidate for the Board of Supervisors, Patrick Duffy, who won the seat in the hotly contested race with Democrat Jim Donahue. At our poll in 2-3, with a total of 425 voters (counting absentees), Duffy won 255 to 170.

It was also a clean sweep for the endorsed slate of candidates for Methacton School Board, with newcomer Brenda Hackett being the top vote getter above the incumbent team. All four defeated unendorsed Republican Brian Earnshaw and Democrat Yong Cho.

Vote totals for school board candidates for 2-3:

                Hackett                 329

                 Roth                    298

                 Phillips                209

                 Nascimento         207

                 Earnshaw            180

                 Cho                     174 

It’s 1:30 am, I have (I think) picked up all the signs in our voting district, and I am a bit sunburned and really, really tired, but a big thanks is in order to all you voters who made time to vote, those who allowed us to put signs on their lawns, and especially to my dear friend Debbi Tarsi for working her magic on the phone to help drive turnout at our poll. Great job by your local team!

As soon as I have the poll-by-poll results for the entire township, I will post those.
