Local Electrician Credits Bristol for Repair to Veteran's Group HQ

Armour and Sons Electric wrote off the $1,250 repairs to the Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans' building as a donation to the organization.

According to a press release from the office of Bristol Township manager Bill McCauley, Armour and Sons Electric has agreed to credit the township for the $1,250 repair to the headquarters of the Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans.

The building was damaged the night before Veterans Day in November 2013 when suspected copper thieves cut wires to the transformer. The electricians worked with PECO to get the building back to full power before the start of a scheduled ceremony that honored veterans that suffer from the effects of Agent Orange.

The owners of Armour and Sons Electric wrote the repair off as a donation to the Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans, according to the release.

“I spoke to Ray Armour today and he was extremely cooperative in helping us forge a resolution”, said McCauley in the release. “It turned out that Ray Armour is a Vietnam veteran himself and was only too happy to help out DV3 and Bristol Township taxpayers.”

Council President Bob Lewis supported the resolution between the electrician and McCauley.

“Mr. McCauley understands that his job is first and foremost to protect the taxpayers of Bristol Township,” he said. “He and the Council are in office today because our taxpayers have taken a back seat to special interests and politicians.”

Lewis also thanked Armour and Sons Electric for their generosity. He also took a moment to defend McCauley from critics who thought he was insensitive to the veterans group.

“It is more than a little ironic that the politicians finding fault are the decision-makers from the past here in the Township," said Lewis. “Fortunately, Mr. McCauley embraces solutions and solves problems instead of just giving us lip service.”
