Doubleday Addresses Seniors’ Concerns at Buckingham Springs Town Meeting

Buckingham Supervisor Candidate Wendel Doubleday met with senior citizens on Wednesday, May 9th, to discuss his priorities for making Buckingham Township a better community for all township residents, including its seniors.

Doylestown, PA, May 12, 2007 --( In a town hall style meeting with an enthusiastic crowd at the Buckingham Springs Club House on Thursday, May 9th, Wendel Doubleday met with senior citizens and discussed his priorities for making Buckingham Township a better community for all township residents, including its senior citizens.

Doubleday, in his bid for one of the three seats on the Buckingham Township Board of Supervisors, listened to concerns from seniors regarding the ineffective performance of current township supervisors in handling government business and vowed as their elected supervisor to bring transparency to township government and ensure that constituents throughout the township have a voice about issues of concern to them.

Doubleday answered questions about his stance on open space and commitment to preserve preserving more farmland in Buckingham Township. The candidate also addressed concerns regarding elevated use of drugs in our schools that affect seniors’ grandchildren, and talked about their interest in having a community pool and recreation center in the lower part of Buckingham Township.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to meet with Buckingham Springs seniors to find out what their concerns are,” said Doubleday. “In order to restore trust and good decision-making to the township government as an elected Buckingham Township Supervisor, I will need to understand concerns of residents from all areas of the township."

Buckingham Township is currently represented by a three person board of supervisors, with one of the seats up for grabs this year. Doubleday will challenge the incumbent, a Democrat, in the May primary.

The incumbent was invited to participate in a debate with Mr. Doubleday at Buckingham Springs but declined.
