From today’s Daily Times, we learn about the pharmacy manager murdered while working in the Chester pharmacy on Thursday.
Forty year old Jason McClay is a Delco guy who went to Haverford High and lived in Broomall. Despite his education in criminal justice, a U.S. Navy vet, and being a big man standing over 6 feet tall, he was no match for the bad guys.
It’s no surprises, but worthy of taking note, that the pharmacy manager was not a native or resident of Chester. I’m not sure how big a pool Chester has to pull pharmacist from.
I’m sure he was a good store manager, but it’s hard to build a local economy when people come to work in your town and go live somewhere else. Chester has to either build up its talent pool, or build some decent housing for people who hate to commute.
