Editor’s note: We here at Roy’s Rants are endorsing Cindy Conard. We had the opportunity to meet Cindy a few weeks ago when we toured 716 Adams street (a disgusting rental property in 7th Ward) along with Cindy, her husband and some other civic minded folks. Mr. Kirkland was not in attendance. He was contacted, responded after four days and was more concerned about who the tenant told her story to rather than helping solve her problem.
Mr. Kirkland has had four years to do something to distinguish himself from the pack. I am still waiting to see some actual leadership. As for his being a strictly door-to-door person…why was Dan Weand going door-to-door for you, Joe? Seems like that should be something you would do for yourself. You won’t be losing 40 pounds again that way. I must say many of Mr. Kirkland’s quotes in the article made me chuckle.
We think Pottstown could indeed benefit from some leadership before it turns into Camden or Chester.
Having attended several council meetings, Conard said she feels Pottstown needs to find a way to engage in a more constructive way with borough council.
“People interact with Pottstown when they have an issue,” she said. But council needs to find the leadership to bring the town together in a “shared vision, you know, what we want to be when we grow up.”
Conard is a senior manager of quality assurance with Altria.
“I’m not a politician, but I do believe that Pottstown could benefit from some leadership,” she said.
