I hope this update finds all of you well and faring one of the muddiest and messiest Winters I can recall. I am reaching out to let you know the Commonwealth Court has tentatively scheduled an oral argument date of Monday June 3rd, in Philadelphia, before a panel of three judges. Date and time has not yet been confirmed. For now, please mark your calendars and I will follow up when I learn more.
A few weeks ago, I crashed the Willistown Township BOS meeting (because there is nothing I would rather do with my spare time- NOT). I attended on behalf of a close friend and ended up witnessing an incredible display of local government in action over an issue with PennDOT. A packed house and standing room only- residents used their power by showing up, asking questions and calling on their public officials to step up on their behalf. And the people were heard! As a result, the BOS decided not to vote on the issue until they have more information and decided to arrange a public meeting with a PennDOT representative for local residents. What an awesome display of community action. I left so inspired.
On my ride home that night, naturally, I passed Crebilly Farm. There she was, quietly asleep in the black shadows and silhouettes of the trees. And I breathed my familiar and grateful sigh knowing that at least for now, she remains pure and whole and untouched by man-made evils. I remind all of you this is not over and we must keep going. My sincerest thanks to all, for continuing to stay connected and not letting your attention weary of something so very important.
If not you, then who?
