Qualifications I have served as Commissioner in two Wards in Marple for a total of 16 years. I saved the Township over a million dollars in health care costs, recycling and electric utility costs. I originated the Park and Recreation Fee on new developments that has funded upgrades to our parks. I am only one of 30 elected officials in the state that completed the Pa Municipal League training program. I am also the President of Preserve Our Pa Towns working with legislators to control Billboard.
Municipality Marple Township
There is very little transparency by the current Board of Commissioners. The citizens are not made aware of important issues that effect our community. The Township doesn't make full use of the communication tools that are available free. Meetings should be stored on the internet so that they would be available 24/7.

Preserve remaining open space to protect the environment, reduce storm water runoff and control traffic.
