:::::Sniff sniff:::::::Smell that? That is the smell of local politics. Our community group made their first presentation to the Borough Council.
The president Nick Winkler addressed:James Bruton, Anthony Gazzerro, Mark Benner, Ann Feldman and Bob Smith and represented our group very well.
We even educated the council on some issues. One of them would be that, when you see shoes hung over the wires of town that is a "tell" for purchasing narcotics within the neighborhood. Depending on how many shoes there are and where they are placed it will determine the "buy" spot.
A conversation held with Chief McGowan afterward produced a promise to give us an idea of what we need to do as citizens to help aprehend the dealers and or those who choose to come around our area to "make a buy". We might not be able to round up every dealer, but we might be able to make it uncomfortable for them to continue to business in Johnsontown.
We will be having our monthly meeting on Tuesday April 13, 2010 at 7:30PM @St. Anthony's Banquet Hall. If you feel so inclined all are welcome to join us.....united we stand, divided we fall. Hope to see you there!!!
