Dear Lansdowne Residents,
It is Thursday March 26th in the second week of this strange and unsettling situation we find ourselves in. I have just taken a break from catching up on my honey do list.
And as Mayor of Lansdowne, I would like to share some of my thoughts on this crisis that we are all dealing with. As tough as it is not leaving your house and not being able to see family and friends and being able to go to work. this is something we have to do. This is for the safety our families, our neighbors, and our communities. It is especially tough on those who are not working and not getting paid. I know this first hand as I am self employed. I’ll admit it concerns me, but I am confident this will end.
As far as missing family, this past Monday was my grandson’s 7th birthday and it was tough not being able to hug and kiss him.
I’m sure a lot of us are experiencing moments like this. But as long as our loved one’s are safe, this is what is most important. With everything that is going on, as Mayor, I am so proud and grateful for all my colleagues--the men and women on Borough Council, Borough staff--along with the Sanitation department, the Police and Fire departments--who have stepped up and are committed to making sure the borough residents are safe, services are kept up, and Lansdowne stays informed. Lansdowne is fortunate to have such men and women serving the community.
I was thinking that this is not the first time our country was hit with uncertainty and fear. The Lansdowne community witnessed events like the Great Depression, Pearl Harbor, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the attack of 9/11. After each event our country rallied together, worked hard, and were committed to getting back on our feet. And we did. There’s no doubt in my mind that we can do it again.
Please follow the Borough website for all the important updates from the state, county and borough government. Also don’t forget to fill out your Census form. It is important for Lansdowne.
Take this time to finish house chores, work on your garden, read, play games with your kids, take a walk or just sit outside on your porch. Remember we are all in this together. Stay safe. I’ll see you around town soon.
Your Mayor Tony Campuzano
