Commissioner, Abington Township, Ward 11

Keeping the Abington Dollar in Abington

Think of all of the traffic that passes through our Township on Old York, Easton, Susquehanna, Old Welsh, and Huntingdon Pike, along with many other major streets. Those are people passing through Abington to get to somewhere and Abington folks headed somewhere else. Ever wonder how many of those folks are going to the movies up in Warrington, or headed to Ambler’s restaurant row, or maybe off to a one-of-a-kind boutique in Doylestown or New Hope? All of that commerce—all of that MONEY—is going someplace else instead of being spent in Abington. If Commissioners work to bring innovative, “destination” small businesses to the Township—if they bring small-biz entrepreneurs, and retail property owners, and Township officials togethers to fill all of the unsightly “empty spots” throughout our community—there’s no reason that we can’t have our own restaurant row, our own movie theater, and other businesses that will allow our residents to spend their money right here. And all of those cars that come through Abington anyway? They’ll turn into customers for our newly thriving business districts. That means more money for the Township, which keeps our taxes low.
