Let’s have a conversation…

I’m smart enough to understand that our actions are often motivated by fear.  Fear of what we don’t know.  Fear of change.  Fear of the different.   With that said, I’m also smart enough to say that I’m not smart enough.  I want to have a better understanding of what it is like to be you.  I want to have an opportunity to chat, unfiltered, and unafraid.   I want to know what it’s like to be a minority and live in Bernville.  I want to know what it’s like to be a democrat or a republican and live in Bernville.  I want to know what it’s like to a straight, white, male in Bernville.  Likewise, I also want to know what your experience has been like if you’re not. I want to have an opportunity to chat and learn about what motivates you.  What we can do to have a better community.   It’s okay if we disagree, but let’s take an opportunity to get a different perspective.  With all this said, over the next couple of weeks, I would like to invite you, one on one to come over and have a drink on the porch; talk and get to know each other.   I’m home most evenings after 5 – so give me a call 570.573.5677 or email me at shawn@bernvilleborough.org

Sincerely,

Shawn A. Raup-Konsavage
Mayor
