East Penn School Board President Charles Ballard and Upper Milford Township Supervisor Robert Sentner have been verbally jousting about the best way to serve the citizens of East Penn School District in the Emmaus Patch comment stream for about a week.
The trigger for their conversation has been an article about last week’s meeting of the East Penn School Board in which Superintendent of Schools Thomas L. Seidenberger suggests the need for a demographic study in the district, in anticipation of a coming “population boom.”
Ballard and Sentner have debated industrial/commercial development vs. farmland preservation and how to handle “unfunded mandates.”
Sentner has stood firmly against “the warehousing of our townships, the worst possible use of land known to mankind.”
Ballard has shared his thoughts on the “Big Lie,” and his views on “the extra burden put on school taxes” by Upper Milford Township’s unwillingness to provide for “a fair share of industrial and commercial development.”
