League of Women Voters Guide Statement

The League of Women Voters of Centre County is compiling their Voter Guide to be published in the Centre Daily Times. I have always been glad for this service and happy to have my views included in it. We get 100 words with which to state our platform. Quite a challenge. Here’s mine:

I will work for community well being, economic security and environmental integrity by focusing on our biggest challenge—growth. First, the recent Toll Brothers—Penn State upset makes hidden planning and zoning stresses obvious. I’d like regional stakeholders to comprehensively tackle development with maximum community input. Second, we have to face environmental debt caused by runoff, greenhouse gas emissions, land conversion and other issues. Synergized with the development plan, Ferguson and the region should develop environmental and climate plans. Finally, we face economic and demographic challenges and disparities as the region changes and grows that we must manage with care.
