UMADC Endorses Carlton J. Stuart, 17 others for Local Office

UPPER MERION AREA DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE ENDORSES CARLTON J. STUART, 17 OTHERS FOR LOCAL OFFICE Lifelong resident and public servant is dedicated to preserving valued history and working toward a progressive future for our community Upper Merion, PA January 29, 2019 —The Upper Merion Area Democratic Committee (UMADC) on Monday night overwhelmingly endorsed Carlton J. Stuart in the Democratic primary race for the Upper Merion Township Board of Supervisors. Carlton, a Vice Chair of the UMADC, was born in Upper Merion and is a 2001 graduate of Upper Merion Area High School. Raised by a single mother who recognized Upper Merion as a nurturing environment for her children— due in part to the many programs offered by the Township—Stuart is a tireless advocate for a strong community. After graduating from American University, Carlton’s passion for public service brought him back to Upper Merion. His current role as executive administrator for Montgomery County Commissioner Val Arkoosh has provided him with a deep understanding of the value of local government. As a member of the Upper Merion Transportation Authority, Carlton recognizes the challenges faced by our community. He is dedicated to protecting the integrity of our township while using today’s technologies to improve our infrastructure. He is committed to preserving Upper Merion’s storied history and thriving parks as exemplified through his involvement in the King of Prussia Historical Society and the Valley Forge Park Alliance. “With over a decade in public service, I’ve dedicated my adult life to open, honest, and transparent government. As an Upper Merion Township Supervisor, I will continue to uphold those values,” says Stuart. “I’m deeply honored and...

We don’t lease property or rent apartments. We don’t do a lot of the things that have brought so much attention to King of Prussia,” said Eric Goldstein, executive director of the seven-year-old organization and keynote speaker. At an earlier luncheon at the Sheraton Valley Forge–which Goldstein missed owing to a bout of the flu–he spoke to the business advocacy group’s partners through a colorful brochure, which detailed several of King of Prussia’s $1 billion completed or burgeoning development projects. From the King of Prussia Courier, March 27: “There is a palpable new energy and new optimism these days,” noted the ailing Goldstein — emcee Bob Hart explained to the crowd that Goldstein had neglected to get his flu shot — in the report. “2016 was a phenomenal year in King of Prussia … Economic development and job growth continued at an impressive rate.” Nowhere was that economic development more in evidence than at King of Prussia Mall, which owner Simon Property Group unveiled last August when its side-by-side malls, The Plaza and The Court, officially merged into a metropolis all its own, with more than 450 retailers and four...
