I’m sure it’s grately appreciated but what happened to the kids on the west end of the city. There should be somewhere for them to get meals on this end of the city.


Chester has been in a State of Emergency for 25 yrs due to the homicides, drugs, gun running. mental health, turf wars and last but not least; financial corruption within pur school district, local, county, state government. The only University in Chester has more power then the people from the Community of Chester. Every township and borough has benefited financially and doing well except the only city of Delaware County “Chester.” The good and strong positive people of Chester are helping their Community. You just don’t hear about it enough. Thank you to all those that are on the frontline and fighting to turn our Community not back but forward for a greater future. In Honour of my brother Bill.
