Welcome Letter from Mayor Apgar 

 

 

Dear Friends,

Thank you again for electing me to serve as one of your representatives on the Eastampton Township Council. Eastampton is an excellent place to live and raise a family, and I am honored to serve as Mayor this year. I promise that our Township Council will continue to work hard to deliver the type of leadership that you expect from your elected representatives and an Eastampton that you are proud to call home.

I look forward to the coming year, which will continue to bring great things for our community. This Council has historically committed itself to the delivery of quality services at an affordable price, and invested in those projects necessary to maintain the safety, curbside appeal, and family-friendly character of our town. We have dedicated staff who are always looking for new ways to better serve our community, and we have already secured grants that will allow us to continue to move forward with road, park, and pathway improvement projects. We have made progress in redeveloping our town center and achieving the other goals of our community’s Master Plan, which calls for smart growth and balance between preservation and development, and we know we must build on this progress by attracting new businesses to our town.

Our community has thrived because of the many hands that have worked to support it, and so before closing, I would like to say, “Thank you.” Thank you to my fellow Council Members for their sound leadership.  Thank you to our Township Manager and municipal employees for delivering quality services. Thank you to our volunteers, from board and committee members to firefighters, coaches, and PTA parents, for making Eastampton a vibrant community. And last but not least, thank you to my family. Thank you to my wife, Ally, whose support makes my service possible and my daughters, Cassidy and Sierra, who inspire it by giving me two reasons to try to make everything better .

I encourage everyone to remain engaged this year. Whether you volunteer your time, join us at a meeting, or simply stay informed, it makes a difference for our community.

Best wishes for 2020,

Robert Apgar
