Sometimes you have to vote with your feet. From what I see moving in to New Oxford, I may soon have to move as well. Before the crime rate goes up, and property values decline

It's probably only a matter of time before it will be illegal for you to move.

Make the cities safe, make the schools work, and people won't leave. I know plenty of middle class African Americans who refuse to live in the city.

Trust a "newspaper" to make it into a "racist" thing. The real problem is scum-sucking thugs and thug-like children that come with the new so-called "families", many of whom are fleeing from the same kind of neigborhoods elsewhere, and bring their thug teenagers with them.

Race has nothing to do with people leaving York. It's all about property taxes.

Racially obsessed fools living in a pothead's dream world from the 1960's.

YorkCounts needs to get it that its about less crime and responsible schools and its not about consolidating government to make it bigger.

With people who are tied to the financially strapped City of York spearheading this group, its plainly obvious they are interested in consolidating government so the suburbs can bail out the city.

YorkCounts is a just a collective of progressives who must be stopped.

Pressure your local township elected officals to stay out of police consolidation plans. Many have already caved to support a "study" that will be used to shove the bailout of the York City Police and their pension fund on the suburbs.

This lady should do a study. What was the market value of the properties in her neighborhood 15 years ago and what are they now. Then, what has been the price appreciation in the homes that the "flighters" bought 15 years ago when they moved. After that, she can talk about how it was just a economic decision.

I have lived in Pennsauken for the last 19 years. This town is going down fast! The changes I have seen on my block alone are enough to make me want to pull up stakes and move.
The bottom line is a big clash of cultures. Maybe it's just me but,dogs barking at all hours,loud parties EVERY weekend,the same car alarm going off 2x a week,people pulling up to a house and honking there horn at 11 p.m.kids and those beer can mufflers, schools that are the 2nd worse in the county "only Camden City is worse." Many of the people moving in have multiple children so schools taxes will jump.
The folks moving in don't have the same values as the folks that are moving out. So you can figure what will happen to this town over the next few years. Crime,over taxed schools,ballooning social service costs etc. My firm advice to any one who finds the above things objectional is to move or don't buy in Pennsauken. This town is close to the tipping point of not enough tax payers who don't use tax money and people who use a lot of social services. The days of the state bailing towns out are over.The taxes must be collected on the local level.

Isn't it great what the P/C liberals have done to this once great country? Hold on because with what we have running (ruining)the country now,it will go down the drain even faster.They want the working people pay for the lowlifes that won't work and keep demanding more and more. Obama = no hope and all shame!!---Democrats = tax the working- give to the lowlifes to buy their votes.
