On Thursday evening, Campaign Manager Tom Baker and I attended a meeting of the Canton Township Supervisors. With about 8,800 residents, Canton has one of the largest population blocks in the 46th Legislative District.
Canton has a varied landscape -- from old industrial sites to diverse residential neighborhoods to substantial agricultural areas. It's an area I've gotten to know well through my campaigns for the State House and, if elected, I would be proud to represent it.
A current issue for Canton is the introduction of new water lines and public sewers into some parts of the township. The supervisors discussed this at length on Thursday during a report from township's engineering firm, HMT & Associates. At issue was the possibility of installing public water lines on Armstrong Drive and a joint sewerage project for Route 18 between Canton and Chartiers Township.
The supervisors also announced the address for Canton's new Website: www.yourcanton.com.
