Delco Seeks To End Residency Requirement — UPDATED The high-spending Democrat-controlled Delaware County Council has hired 500 new workers and is considering ending the restriction that they be Delaware County residents as per the administrative code.
Several citizens attended tonight’s (Aug. 3) meeting of the Council to express concerns.
We are told that councilwomen Elaine Paul Schaefer and Christine R. Reuther support ending the residency requirement; Council Chairwoman Dr. Monica Taylor wants to keep it; and councilmen Kevin M. Madden and Richard R. Womack, Jr. generally want to keep it but are OK with allowing exceptions.
Here’s a tidbit just sent to us: Indivisible Main Line South, a Democrat activist group, asked its supporters in February 2020 to become poll watchers in Delaware County and used Delaware County Councilwoman Christine Reuther as a contact.
Why isn’t the Delaware County GOP making an issue of this? The Springfield GOP? Any GOP?
