Scrofano’s political platform, if elected, centers on the maintaining of the township budget for the community. It is her primary concern.
While Scrofano understands that real estate taxes have been on everyone’s agenda, it will be Scrofano’s political platform that it begins with the township budget. The controlling of spending and making cuts where needed is increasingly important without detrimentally affecting the community in which the Stroud Township residents live.
Scrofano, if elected, would also look at areas within the township that could possibly be rezoned to allow for more attractive development, review large expenditures and determine if they need a “second look”, revitalize zoning that could help revitalize Stroud Township where needed while maintaining the beauty of the area.
Scrofano plans on attending the March 10th Monroe County Republican Committee meeting at the Pocono Inn.
