As Democratic Bernie Couris is starting finding his voice for
his campaign and it looks like he is locked in on the current
Board of Supervisors, alleging they are inflexible and not
listening to the residents. As I stated in my last newsletter,
if he took the time to watch all the township videos on the
website, he would come up to speed. As a side note, the former
Administration famous for doing what it wanted, was pressured
into videoing the meetings and posting them on the website, but
they removed all those videos the next year. That way, if you
wanted to refer back, any evidence was gone that might prove
that the minutes did not match the video. This Administration
has kept the videos up since 2014. You can see exactly what was
said, in what context and why. More transparency. Find another
township that does this.
Now Bernie talks about this lack of discussion again in another
post. He says on his facebook page (and I quote):
the meeting, a neighbor asked, “Why are there no planned
discussions regarding the plans to purchase part of Bryn Coed
Farms? Why haven’t we gotten to hear from the Open Space
Good question, right?
The Board of Supervisors says they will have a public hearing
after they have formed a plan of action.
My concern, and I bet it is yours as well, is that this will be
the Chester Springs Gate discussion all over again. Here’s the

· Allot minimal time at a Township meeting.
· Vote immediately afterwards as if the BoS had already made up
their minds before hearing from the public.
They have not been flexible when residents raise valid concerns
and ideas. The voice of the township is not being heard.”
Once again, his is either blissfully unaware of what has been
going on (all in public) or he is grossly misleading the public.
The Board of Supervisors have spoken at length about the
property. It is easy to see this by just watching the videos. In
2017, Bryn Coed was discussed at the following BoS meetings
I don't think you can truly say "The voice of the
township is not being heard". Bryn
Coed has been discussed at 9 of the 20 meetings held so far this
year. It looked like Mr. Couris was in attendance
at several of those meetings so he should have known. While he
may not know or understand what is going on, he could just ask
George Dulchinos, George could answer his questions. He has been
to almost every BoS meeting for the last 5+ years and therefore demonstrated a
long term interest in the
