In this week's edition of the Chester County Press, we take you to Oxford, for the unexpected announcement that longtime Borough Manager Betsy Brantner will step away from her post after 15 years on the job ... We take you to the campaign for the House seat in the 158th District, where Republican candidate Leonard Rivera has removed his name from the ballot and will run as a write-in candidate, following an investigation into how he gathered petition signatures ... We take you to the Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board, where there was continued debate about whether to drop decile rankings for students ... All of this and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's Chester County Press.
