BEST OF LUCK TO THE
BROAD STREET RUNNERS TODAY!
TODAY: Giant Flea Market at DCCC starting at 8am
Best Breakfast in Town - Media VFW!
That's right! On the last Sunday of every month, the Media VFW holds an All-You-Can-Eat breakfast for $8. There's plenty of parking, plenty of food and a very nice atmosphere provided by this group. I appreciate them having me last Sunday. I'll be back!
Sorella Boutique Right Here In Media, PA
I don't know how I know this because I've never been to the store and am not in the market for women's dresses, but if you're looking for a prom dress, the place to go is Sorella's on State Street. I've heard that from so many casual conversations over the last year, that it's worth mentioning on this site. It's great to see a local Media business setting the stage for fashion that people from all over the area come to see and purchase.
JAGO - Media's Italian Opera
I'm not only excited about this event, but I was invited to the event kick-off reception at Alfredo in Berwyn. It was not only packed, but had a vibe that I think will make this performance a big hit in Media. JAGO will be playing at the Media Theatre starting May 30th through June 1st.
Motorcycle Awareness Month
The reality anymore is that more people are texting while driving than not. Maybe not texting in the true sense, but using there smart phone to change their music or to see what's happening on social media. Being it Motorcycle Awareness Month, please keep you eyes out for riders.
Companies won't be posting on ATM
I was approached this week by a bank who asked me if they could write a blog post for ATM. They were looking to give away a gift card of $50 through a post they wanted to share on this blog. I graciously declined, as I didn't want this becoming some sort of commercialized site. I'm not interested in making money with this and the only ads I do have on this site are ones I do for the community for free. I think that's been a good model for readers so far.
In addition, please send me announcements from the community as I always try to make them a top priority to share with others. We had a few this week from Transition Town, Poem in Your Pocket and DCTMA
I get the whole thing about election signs and putting them up throughout town. What I don't understand is why five of the same sign have to be put right next to each other to make it look like one candidate is more popular than another. It looks awful.
On behalf of the community who I think agrees with me, please take your signs down after May 21st.
Division Among the Ranks
|Councilman Kent Davidson's Company = Friends of Glen Providence Park|
There's been a few articles about this recently, but one this week really illustrates the problem. It's not a party problem, it's a leadership problem based on deception and lack of accountability that is directly affecting how this town is run. Media Democrats are fed up and are openly asking who does their local party represent? They've even gone as far as to support non-endorsed candidates who are running in the democratic primary on May 21st.
|No secrets, No back-room deals? |
Yeah right, Councilman Davidson!
When you have people like Kent Davidson pulling the strings for this local party, it's no wonder why people are up in arms and their trust has eroded. This was the same person on borough council who was caught red handed providing undisclosed web services to a group that was lobbying him on Third Street Bridge. A group his wife was a founding member of. He still refuses to admit it's a conflict of interest when he lives 40' from the bridge! How can he represent the whole town when he clearly represents a few?
To the eight candidates running in this May Primary: Please make sure who you are affiliated with and what reflection that will have on you as a candidate.
