Mayor Strub: A forward-thinking problem solver

To the Editor:

In the run-up to the mayoral election in Milford Borough, it’s useful to stop and think about what the mayor of a small town like ours needs to be. It seems to me that to be effective, he or she must have two distinct sets of skills. The mayor must be a problem solver who can jump in on even the smallest of matters occurring in the borough, and get things done. At the same time, the mayor must have a vision for the future of the community, and the imagination and know-how to make good on that vision.

Here in Milford, we are fortunate to have a mayor with both skill sets. Sean Strub is a can-do mayor and a creative problem solver who responds to, and helps resolve, residents’ immediate issues — say, noise complaints or the lighting situation at Ann Street Park. But importantly, he is also forward-looking in thinking and planning for Milford’s long-term needs, and that is a trait that any small town urgently needs. It’s easy to see by looking around at other communities in Pennsylvania and elsewhere how towns that don’t plan appropriately for the future will inevitably go downhill.

Sean Strub has long exhibited this forward-thinking approach. He is responsible for renovating and bringing new life to a number of historic buildings, most notably the wonderful Hotel Fauchere, which has become something of a centerpiece on the borough’s main street. He has worked with many individuals and groups on a variety of enhancements to the community. This sense of vision, of seeing “the big picture” of how a historic town like ours can move confidently into the future, inspires his work as mayor, and Milford is better for it.

To add a personal note, I’ve known Sean for almost 20 years and have worked with him from time to time on different projects. He is kind, funny, easy to talk to and very approachable. He has tremendous energy, and a knack for connecting with people and for getting a job done.

We are lucky to have him as our mayor, and I would urge my friends and neighbors in Milford Borough to vote for Sean Strub on Nov. 7.
