June 3: Water Found OK, Maria and Sarah in Horsham June 6th

Water Found OK, Boil Order Lifted

Democratic Member of Horsham Council Bill Gallagher confirmed today at the Executive Meeting of the Horsham Democratic Committee that no contamination in Horsham Water was found after a series of tests ordered when the chlorination unit at one of the Horsham wells was found to be not operating. 

As described in this article, the Boil Water Order was lifted as soon as the tests came back negative, to the relief of many residents and businesses. 

Horsham Day was a casualty of the water situation as well: Horsham Day itself was cancelled due to the water crisis and a very poor weather outlook. By the end of Saturday, with little precipitation and the Boil Water Order cancelled, things were looking better, but it was by all accounts an extremely difficult week for the township and water authority staff. 

Horsham Day Fireworks, cancelled for yesterday, will be rescheduled for another time. 

HDC Reorganization

Now that the elected members of the Horsham Committee have been confirmed, the local committee must 'reorganize', as leaving committee members complete their terms and new committee members are brought on board. The Horsham Democratic Committee will hold its reorganization meeting on June 5th, 2018, at the Yuong Sang Presbyterian Church, 706 Witmer Road, in Horsham, at 7PM. This meeting, following the Primary election, will formally invest the committee members for the next four year period. 
As part of the Reorganization Process we will accept NOMINATIONS for the positions on the Committee, including Chair, Vice Chair, Second Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary by Email to [email protected]. Nominations will open on May 16 and close on June 4th at 5PM.
Our current executive, as shown on our website at http://www.horshamdems.org/committee_leadership is as follows: 

Malcolm Stanley - Chair
Peggy Leiby - Treasurer
Lisa Cellini - Secretary
Natasha Malhotra Bagchi - Diversity
Mike Rodin - Phone Bank
