Dem Incumbents Battle Challengers In Chester
By Bob Small
If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.
Incumbents William Morgan and Elizabeth Williams are facing challenges from Tamika M. Gibson and Fred Green in the Chester City Council in the May 16 Democrat Primary.
All participated in the League of Women Voters Forum available on YouTube.
“I hear a lot about plans that are supposed to be coming forward but you had six to eight years to put a plan in place and now because it’s election season, I hear what we’re planning to do,” Ms. Gibson said. “The plan has failed. We need a whole new administration to come forth to implement better plans to change the situation that Chester is in. The plans that you’ve already had don’t work. They haven’t worked. It’s time to get rid of the old and put something new in place so that we can move forward properly.”
There are a number of YouTube videos of Tamika M. Gibson.
