An historic first in Kennett Square?

02/06/2018 01:00PM ● Published by Steven Hoffman

Last month, LaToya Myers was selected to serve as council president by her colleagues on Kennett Square Borough Council. It is believed that Myers is the first woman to serve as council president in the borough’s history, although that lacks verification. Charla Watson, a lifelong resident of Kennett Square, said that she is certain that Myers is the first woman to preside over council. Myers, who has served on council for two years, said that she expects issues related to economic development to top borough council’s agenda this year. Kennett Square Borough and Kennett Township have partnered on economic development planning, including the hiring of an economic development director. The borough council members, township supervisors, and officials from Historic Kennett Square recently held the first joint meeting to discuss economic development opportunities.

“We want to leverage our resources to enhance the area,” Myers said.
