Concern expressed over school site location

April 10, 2013

Our Delaware Valley School District is trying desperately to build an unnecessary $20 million primary school in Milford Township, PA in the “death zone” of a high-pressure gas pipeline, and not one of us in the community has been asked whether we want to do such an outrageous thing.

We need to have a referendum on whether to build it. We, the people, who are going to have to pay for it and face the embarrassment in the media if worse comes to worst—and are asked why we allowed such an outrage to occur—we should be allowed to vote on it.

Up to now, we in Pike County have been treated as serfs in a feudal dictatorship, with no say in how our tax dollars (and perhaps children’s lives) are spent.

I can’t be the only one affronted by this.

A referendum’s only fair. It’s our money, they are our children, and this is our community.
