Morgan, Colvin & Raith Take “No Sale” Pledge
Media, PA: Delaware County Council candidates Mike Morgan, Kelly Colvin and Jim Raith commit to protecting Fair Acres Geriatric Center, which is owned by Delaware County. Furthermore, they have signed a “No Sale” Pledge to ensure the critical facility serving our most vulnerable remains under public supervision.
“When it comes to Fair Acres, we have taken a ‘No Sale’ pledge,” said Jim Raith, “We will keep Fair Acres under public oversight.”
“Fair Acres serves over 600 of our county’s most vulnerable citizens,” said Kelly Colvin, “It’s the only county-run geriatric center in all of Delaware County.”
“Other counties have sold their nursing facilities in an effort to balance budgets,” said Mike Morgan, “We think that is the wrong direction.”
“This is important because concern for the ‘bottom line’ has made many private locations unaffordable to many; we need to provide a safe haven for our seniors,” continued Colvin, “That being said, county government can take a greater role to enhance their quality of life at Fair Acres.”
“We toured Fair Acres to hear first-hand from the residents, unionized county employees and leadership,” said Mike Morgan, “Like any aging infrastructure, Fair Acres needs support.”
“Fair Acres needs a significant level of infrastructure investment,” continued Colvin.
“As County Council members, we will provide the investment that Fair Acres deserves,” closed Raith
Operated by Delaware County for over 200 years, Fair Acres serves the county’s most vulnerable residents when they are no longer able to live on their own. The facility cares for residents of all ages, including seniors or others requiring around-the-clock skilled nursing care.
