Based on these results, Republicans are no longer needed or welcome in Chester. The new Democratic administration has what it takes to launch Chester to a new level.
Personally, I’m curious where Democrats will marshal their prosperity since there aren’t many opportunities to create revenue for the city within the city limits. There will be a nice bump in 2013 when the Keystone Opportunity Zone businesses start paying their full tax load. Other than that, show me the new money!
In my opinion, Chester’s prosperity must come from a continued influx of new businesses, and a slew of higher income residents buying homes and paying taxes (which implies that someone builds new homes for the higher income folks).
We’ll see how well the dominate Republican party in the county and state choose to work with the Chester Democrats. To believe that anything of substance can come to Chester without their involvement is hopeful, at best.
Maybe if the question read, ‘Will Chester prosper...’, the results would be different.
Or, maybe I’m just missing something. Let me know what it is, please.
