I am a published historian, conservative activist and public servant. My publications include a chapter entitled "The Aftermath," in Lepanto by G.K. Chesterton and The Centennial History of Holy Rosary Parish: 1904-2004 Reading, PA. I am a contributor to The Federalist. I serve on the Board of Directors of the Italian-American Cultural Center of Pennsylvania. I was elected a Reading School Director in 2005, serving until 2009, and then was appointed to the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy in 2013. I was appointed to the Reading Planning Commission in 2014 and elected Chairman in 2017.
I am pleased to report that my blog has received its 500th visit since April 2, 2009. As I have noted in earlier blog hit reports, I do not count my own visits, and I strictly define a visit as a page view at least one hour later than the previous one. If I were to count each additional page viewed as a hit, then the total would be 550, and if I were to count every page load as a hit, as many others do, then the total is around 730 hits. Thank you for your patronage of my blog!
