Sincere ‘Thanks’ Extended for Successful Food Drive

Dear Editor,

We’d like to thank the Pleasant Hills and Jefferson Hills communities and all other donors for their generosity. Several weeks ago, we sent an email blast announcing that Prince of Peace Lutheran Church would serve as a drop off point for donations for the ‘SHIM Sack Hunger, Pack Hope’ campaign which supports their food pantry. We also invited our neighbors in Jefferson Hills to utilize this drop off point. The generosity of our communities amounted to 788 pounds of donations!

On behalf of the Pleasant Hills Borough council's Community Affairs committee, I'd like to thank all of the residents for their incredible generosity and Prince of Peace for serving as a drop off point. This is a community that cares about its neighbors, and it shows!


Matt Miceli
Member of Pleasant Hills Borough Council
Chair, Community Affairs Committee


Ruscitto Asks For Your Vote for Jefferson Hills Borough Council

Dear Editor,

My name is Nicole Ruscitto, although many of you may know me as Nicole Stoicovy. I am writing to seek the support of Jefferson Hills residents and their vote as a candidate for Jefferson Hills Borough Council.

As a graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School, I appreciate the long-standing traditions of our Jefferson Hills Community. I embrace our resilient communal history, and currently call home to one of our historical neighborhood landmarks.

For most of my life I have resided in the West Jefferson Hills School District community. I am committed to ensuring that our political priorities remain focused on our elders, families, local businesses, and most importantly, our future generations. One of the most inspiring attributes in our community is those of us that grew up here, and have chosen Jefferson Hills to raise our families.

As a public school teacher for 23 years, I have dedicated my professional career to children and families. My experience as a middle school librarian has taught generations of students the importance of research, analysis, and discussion before making decisions. I will bring this research-based, open discussion to our community and make decisions based on the best interest of all of our residents.

My fellow Jefferson Hills neighbors deserve successful, community- benefitted developments. However, before decisions are made, everyone, even those with differing viewpoints will be invited to participate in the discussion. We are entitled to a vision that is responsive and responsible.

Focusing on public safety in Jefferson Hills is not just about our appreciation for law enforcement and our volunteer firefighters, it is also about protecting families, safeguarding our healthy green spaces, ensuring acceptable air quality, and nurturing a safe and healthy environment for our children.

I believe our precious resources must be developed in a way that strengthen the prosperity of local businesses and are not exploited at the hands of big business and developers. Our priority should always reflect creating and maintaining an optimal livable community for our families. As your candidate for Borough Council, the interest of our children and families regarding public safety, business development, and community development will always be at the forefront.

I look forward to meeting you, hearing your concerns and comments, as well as your vision of our community, while together successfully building an innovative and sustainable path for our future.
I humbly ask for your support and I appreciate your vote on May 21, 2019.

Nicole Ruscitto – Jefferson Hills
