“What must be changed are the rules of the game.”- David Rusk

At the First Suburbs Summit on December 7, David Rusk issued a challenge. He asked community leaders from the first suburbs of Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties, to harness their collective power to influence positive change in their communities, to restore prosperity to the region, and to increase competitiveness in the Commonwealth. The summit created a dialogue about common challenges we all face in our communities.

Since the summit, leaders have identified four priority issues, conducted research, crafted recommendations and adopted the issues for action. The issue areas are:

Infrastructure
Housing
Education
Finance
Social Services

On Saturday, May 31, we will explore these issue areas, set a prioritized agenda for the future, and launch strategic campaigns to harness our collective power for regional change. Please join us.

To register please email: FirstSuburbsProject@gmail.com. There is an attendance fee of $15, payable at the door.

Contact: Rev. J.Patrick Seyler: 484 5880 8735 or pastorjpseyler@comcast.net.
