Upper Makefield Property Rights Prevail!
Last night in the Upper Makefield Township building, in a standing room only crowd, the concerned citizens of Upper Makefield joined together to protect their property rights from the Delaware and Lehigh Scenic Byway project. Together in a collective voice they told the township supervisors to rescind the resolution supporting this project.
As a number of concerned citizens raised their concerns, the township supervisors voted unanimously to rescind the resolution. During the meeting the Chairman Dan Rattigan exclaimed about the numerous amounts of emails and phone calls he had been receiving urging him to rescind this resolution.
After the resolution was rescinded one of the citizens in attendance joyously cried “this is democracy in action, this is how democracy works!” We here at AFP-PA couldn’t agree more and will continue to work tirelessly to protect and empower the citizens from their government whether it be at the federal, state, or local level.
