This is the beginning of a blog for me– something I never really thought I would do. This blog came about as a suggestion from a friend who had recently read about a project that I am currently working on called “365 Days in Lansdale”. “365 Days in Lansdale” is a photo essay that I began on January 1, 2012 to document a year as mayor in Lansdale. Each day I take a dozen or so photos and then I write about what I did that day relating to the Borough. The reason for this is partially for me, partially for my children and partially for the residents of Lansdale (should anyone care to read it!). The past three and a half years have been tremendously interesting. Three weeks prior to becoming mayor, I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would be a public servant. Anyway, stay posted. I hope to write at least every day, and if nothing else I hope that my readers will take an interest in the governmental process.
