Jon Ichter Announces Candidacy for North Ward Council Seat

The Republican is making his second run for the Phoenixville Borough Council.

Republican Jon Ichter will be making his second run for a seat on Phoenixville's Borough Council, the Republican announced earlier this week.

Ichter, in a formal announcement he provided to Patch, said he has locked up an endorsement from the Phoenixville GOP, but emphasized that party politics is less important to him than problem solving.

"Local politics are less about major political party views," the North Ward candidate wrote. "It is more about doing what is right to support, sustain, enhance, and move forward the future of this great Borough. I will be your voice in our local public halls and I promise I will not let you down in these regards."

Below is his announcement, in full:

Greetings,

I would like to announce my campaign for election to the Phoenixville Borough Council.  This is my second attempt to serve the people of the North Ward.  I am not one to give up easily and truly believe I have many excellent qualities to offer as a public servant on Borough Council.  Over the course of the next few months I look forward to rolling out my campaign and hosting fund raising events to give us the best opportunity for victory come November 5, 2013.

This announcement additionally confirms my official endorsement by the Phoenixville GOP for the North Ward Borough Council seat in the upcoming election season.  Over the next few weeks my team will be knocking on doors to gather the necessary signatures for my nomination petition.  

Lastly, I am requesting your help in spreading the word about my candidacy. Whether you can volunteer to pass out materials, knock on doors, or make phone calls, the only way a victory is possible is with the help of my friends, colleagues, and the many wonderful people throughout this Borough.  If you are interested in being part of the campaign team please let me know and I can substantiate my views and plans while also answering any additional questions.

Local politics are less about major political party views. It is more about doing what is right to support, sustain, enhance, and move forward the future of this great Borough. I will be your voice in our local public halls and I promise I will not let you down in these regards.

Respectfully,

Jon Ichter

I would like to hear what Mr. Ichter plans to do about the neglected portions of the North side. There are drug dens and rotting buildings. Mr. Kirkner has done nothing in all his years of Council to combat these problems. I would really like to see someone fight the good fight for the people stuck in these slums. It’s an embarrassment to people coming into town from the North side. We have a number of shelters in the vicinity and I don’t think we are giving the residents of these shelters a fighting chance with all the drug dealers running rampant. It would be great to hear a debate about what the candidates would do to combat the problems of the North side.

Harrry, schools are getting out, isn't it time for you to stalk little kids you sick freak.

Jon, a debate would be welcoming as Realist mentioned! People are biased to party lines so I strongly urge you to let the voters know we still have the majority 2 party system, yet this needs to be abolished ,
Jane March 05, 2013 at 10:44 PM
...continued... but until this becomes a reality, if ever, you fully intend to work with everybody under any circumstances that uphold our great Constitution!! And please let it be known that you stand for independence not dependence, as well as credibility, responsibility, and accountability. Then perhaps the people will unite!! Let them know we are in a soft state of tyranny and you will not let your people of Phoenixville succomb to this government... you can be the one to help change this.. persevere!!
