Third St. Bridge: Back to Court March 13th

Though Media Borough Council was successful in having the court order stipulation dropped, Judge Proud is not quite finished with the whole ordeal and has asked the parties to return to court March 13th.  I'm not quite sure what that meeting will entail, but I do know that with the stipulation dropped, this whole situation is back to where it started 17 years ago.  That means all those petitions, citizen advisory committees, surveys, meetings and who knows how much in time and money, was a waste for all of us.  Mayor Bob McMahon, Hall, Davidson and Robinson really hyped it up over the last year, but turns out, that's all it was - HYPE

Unfortunately, that also means financing secured for this project is in jeopardy too, if not already reallocated to another project.  I don't know the time frame on what will happen there, but I can call PennDot to find out.  Last time I did, they hadn't been informed that this was back in court.  With the continued undermining efforts of Media's Borough Council, that doesn't surprise me.  The true victims of this are the taxpayers.

Speaking of council, I did see a local politician by the name of Bill Clinton at Trader Joe's in Media today asking people for signatures for his campaign.  I didn't get a chance to talk to him, but was told by his assistant that Bill supports a two-way roadway.  I'm sure that will be an interesting campaign topic for Mr. Clinton in the months ahead.

  2. Bill Clinton will not be seeking another term is the rumor. As a member of his district that lives on the upper prov side, he has never really supported the folks across the road and is only interested in his manchester croonies.

    1. Tru dat! Bill has never once addressed any issues on the WEST side of the pike in UPT. There are water drainage issues at the cul de sac on Wooded Way, there is a crumbling bridge over N. Ridley Creek all the while his area roads see speed bumps, sidewalks to the train station. We over here are left to fight the injustice of Third Street insanity all on our own.

    2. The Third Street Insanity, you got that right. The democrats will be out of office in the next go around. But maybe not. Media people ain't that smart, never were.

  3. Clinton is running for county council. I saw him around too when he was having petitions signed. He'll be okay as long as he doesn't get involved with the Media council idiots. That party is bad news.

  6. Moe, Larry and Curley (The Judge, Media Borough and County Council) are you ready for your closeup? Please, stand on the 3rd Street Bridge, facing Broomall's Lake. Smile.
