BEAVER VALLEY, DE/PA, October 27, 2015 – In a recent announcement, Save the Valley listed Kevin O’Donoghue as one of three candidates worthy of consideration by voters in Concord Township for the office of Supervisor. We cited O’Donoghue’s recent voting record on Beaver Valley as a reason for our support, but cautioned voters that his full record as a Supervisor has not been good and that we couldn’t be sure whether he could provide the type of leadership necessary to meet Concord’s challenges. We further stated that partisan politics was a detriment to creating the change that is needed in Concord.
A recent mailer produced by the Concord Republican Party, chaired by O’Donoghue, unfortunately succumbs to the worst kind of partisan politics. The mailer contains distortions and misrepresentations, and is a disingenuous effort to address important issues. Accordingly, Save the Valley can no longer recommend that voters in Concord consider O’Donoghue as a credible open space candidate. We come to this conclusion not with any glee, but instead with profound disappointment. Concord deserves better.
Here are the misleading statements related to open space:
Save the Valley’s mission is to preserve the unprotected acres of Beaver Valley in Pennsylvania and Delaware by facilitating public awareness, public education, mobilization, and action regarding the protection of Beaver Valley. We are a group of local, action-oriented citizens who share a common love for Beaver Valley and aim to preserve it for future generations.
