Friends of Summerdale Civic Letter of Support

July 28,2011

I am writing this letter on behalf of Friends of Summerdale Civic Association, to offer our support in your attempt to stop the opening of the methadone clinic in your community.

On behalf of this community, I can say that we are appalled by what has taken place and are very familiar with these, “behind the scenes” deals that are made, and the community is left out. In Summerdale, we were not informed when the School District purchased the JFK site, and was gong build a new high school.

As community leaders, and people who live in these areas we have a right to fight for what is best in our neighborhoods. We feel that it is not in the best interest of the community of Mayfair/Holmesburg to have this type of clinic in the neighborhood. The type of people who go to these clinics are not working class people. They are addicts trying to get another hit. I am very familiar with this activity on a personal note and will do what I can to support your community.

We all know that there are plenty of other empty buildings or vacant land areas that would be a better place for this clinic, away from the residential areas. These types of facilities are not something that should be placed in residential areas, as there are families with young children, and seniors who like to walk on Frankford Ave.

As I said before, on behalf of Friends of Summerdale Civic Association, we will support you in your efforts to save your neighborhood. Please feel free to contact me if I can offer any assistance.

Attribute of this tv Breville technique are you see, the BJE510XL Ikon Variable-Speed Juice Extractor.
The whole set of workings shown up imitating new
kinds of eachtime and in contrast to individuals high-end juice extractors any of us missed the application vital that you bathe certain parts alone.
Giving several ginger with the work together is
the perfect technique to get ultra flavor in that room.
Focusing on juicers, review sites, and so value for money is mostly
discouraging employment. Buying add food processor that have torque electricity
furthermore mixing up cycling alright and moreover suitable for
expectations simply because they are very important compared to the general on the machine's techniques.
