The voters of West Chester Borough have spoken loud and clear. A full 73% of those who voted on the amendment said “YES!” to the Environmental Community Bill of Rights!
The amendment passed by a substantial margin in every ward, despite some significant on-the-ground opposition in two wards. This is a very clear message that the voters of West Chester are ready to stand up for clean air, clean water, and a sustainable energy future.
In some ways, our work only now begins. But for now, please accept my deep gratitude for standing up for a healthy environment and our children’s future.
