The Borough government is utterly unresponsive to the real needs of the citizens. They are political cronies who support each other and have been re-elected by the small group they support. They are not progressive in any way and not open to new ideas. We are living in the 1950's, which make it a pleasant place for the older white males who are predominate in the Borough government.
