Charlestown Civic Association

Thank you for making our 25th Anniversary a Silver Event!

It was the biggest - and the best - annual meeting we've ever had. Almost 300 people came to Vincent Kling's house on Sunday, September 20 to help us celebrate our 25th year. There was great food. Plenty to drink. Live music. A chance to ride in a helicopter. And lots of fun.
But mostly, it gave you the opportunity to see your friends and neighbors. Talk to our township officials. Hear about some of the critical issues facing our township. And discover some ways to deal with them.
Carole Rubley, our State Representative, talked to us about the proposed Turnpike slip-ramp. She suggested that, if anyone wanted to know more, the person to contact is State Senator Jim Gerlach. Ms. Rubley then presented the CCA with a Citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, citing us as having "...enhanced the quality of life of the community."
Karen Martynick, one of our Chester County Commissioners, congratulated us on our anniversary, and praised us for our continuing efforts to maintain and preserve open spaces. Then she presented us with a Citation from Chester County in appreciation of our commitment " establishing a strong community and promoting good will in Charlestown Township."
It was, indeed, a great day!  

November 3 is Election Day
Charlestown residents always turn out and vote. Our sense of civic duty is legendary. So let's keep it going, especially this year, with several important township issues on the ballot.
The most critical is the referendum to increase the Board of Supervisors from three to five. We spent a lot of time studying the issue, and have already published a paper giving our views. For the record, we stand with all three of our current Supervisors in opposition to the increase. We think three is just fine, and our three are particularly good at what they do. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
See you at the polls!
