Councilman Cardiff has continually served as Council President since October 2015, when both the past Mayor and Council President resigned. Retired Penn-Trafford teacher and Trafford Historical Society member, Steve Perovich, continues to serve as Vice President since council appointed him to the position in January 2020.
Council President Kris Cardiff stated: “I am both humbled and honored to continue to serve at the pleasure of council in the role of Council President. I am even more honored to have Councilman Perovich as Vice President. I am excited to work with this new council and very optimistic on our continuing progress in our community. Over the past few years we have refocused the way Trafford Council serves the residents, business owners, and organizations by engaging, involving, and working as a team with the community. We have some ideas in motion that will continue that focus. It truly is a new age for Trafford Borough!”
Council President Cardiff reveals just a few ideas that are in the works:
- Working with Council to develop new ideas for enforcing traffic speed in our neighborhoods as well as keeping our streets safe by continuing to support our police department.
- Working with and supporting the Trafford Business Association to increase economic development in our community, especially on Cavitt Avenue.
- Re-establishing the Junior Council Member Program – Councilman Corrales and Councilman Cardiff are working with the Penn-Trafford School District on this project
- Expanding Trafford Clean-Up Days – Council could be looking for community volunteers to lead clean-up crews in Trafford Borough neighborhoods to walk along the streets picking up litter during Clean-Up Days
Cardiff also said, “in January 2020, my goal was to create an environment that would encourage and empower the individual council members, where we can throw ideas at the wall and see what sticks. Unfortunately, some of that was delayed by COVID-19, but I now feel it’s time to revisit those ideas and work with the community to continue rebuilding Trafford. I have not seen this kind of energy and optimism in our council and community for as long as I can remember.”
