The new Council overrode outgoing mayor, Sharon Thomas’ veto of the proposed 2010 Pottstown Borough Municipal Budget in their first meeting.
This is not surprising, however, at least there are some people who are trying to be financially prudent with taxpayer money in this town. Unfortunately, Mayor Thomas made enemies doing this the first time, which cost her the election. So much for independent thinking being rewarded.
On a positive note, it appears the new Council is making a big effort to work together and put party differences aside for the general good. I was also happy to see that Councilman Jody Rhoads feels optimistic about this new group.
Let’s get some work done and help Pottstown live up to its potential.
