Thank you to the Voters of Upper Providence Township
I am humbled by your overwhelming support for me this past Tuesday. Thank you so much for coming out on May 17 and taking the time to vote.
I believe that the ideals of good government and fiscal responsibility are principles that cross party lines and partisan ideology. Upper Providence has grown tremendously in the last decade and we are no longer a sleepy agricultural township, but a thriving suburb with vibrant retail and commercial sectors that share a common zip code with family farms that have been here for more than a century. A Township with diverse interests such as ours requires a clear vision for the future. In today’s climate of economic uncertainty, my financial background will be critical in sustaining Upper Providence Township’s high level of services without incurring a tax burden on the community. My goal of increasing transparency will enrich communication between the taxpayers and the Township.
In speaking with so many of you these past weeks, I know that you have concerns and ideas for how we can improve the place we call home. I know that one person does not have all the answers; only together can we move Upper Providence Township into the future, to grow responsibly while preserving our precious heritage. I have heard you and, if elected, I promise to continue to listen and communicate with you. I will never forget that I work for you.
I’d like to thank Bob Fieo for running a hard fought campaign and for his twelve years of dedicated service to our community.
I’d like to thank each member of the Upper Providence Republican Committee, for their support and long hours spent at the polls on Election Day. Thank you also to my family and friends for their advice and hard work. Your support was critical to my success on Tuesday.
And finally, my deepest thanks and undying love for my die hard campaigners: my daughter Dana who drove the “campaign car” every day and my husband Gene, who is my rock, my biggest cheerleader and the guy who kept me going when I was dead on my feet. Your love is my bedrock and your faith in me is my source of strength.
One of the greatest pleasures of running for office was meeting so many terrific people. As I make my way through your neighborhoods in the weeks and months ahead, I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas about how to move our Township forward. In the meantime, please email me with any concerns, questions or thoughts you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your support. Together we can move Upper Providence forward.
Very Truly Yours,
