John Mack - Newtown Supervisor


My name is John Mack and on November 5, 2019, I was re-elected to serve a 6-year term as a Newtown Supervisor. I would like to thank all the citizens who came out and voted on Tuesday and especially those who voted for me. I will do my best to work in the best interest of all Newtown residents.

Honesty · Integrity · Experience

As a Supervisor, I keep busy learning about and making decisions about issues of concern to residents, including the pollution of our streams and lakes, perfluoronated hydrocarbons (PFAS) in our drinking water, preservation of open space, traffic and parking, public safety, fiscal management, and development. On average, I spend more than 40 hours every month on official Supervisor activities including interacting with residents, preparing for meetings, and attending meetings (read "What's the Hourly 'Wage' of a Newtown Township Supervisor?").

Keep Informed About Anti-Discrimination News in Newtown Area

In July, 2018, I proposed that Newtown Township adopt an anti-discrimination ordinance that would protect citizens against discrimination in housing and employment in Newtown based on age, race, color, gender, religion, creed, culture, socioeconomic status, ancestry, national origin, disability, and especially sexual orientation, which currently is not against the law in PA.

The ordinance, which was passed by a 4-1 vote by the Board of Supervisors on 28 November 2018, established the Newtown Human Relations Commission (NTHRC) to facilitate fact-finding conferences with parties in a dispute, conduct investigations and potentially hold public hearings where the parties can provide testimony. Members could then decide whether to issue a cease-and-desist order or take “additional action” as deemed appropriate.

The NTHRC does not yet have an official Facebook page. Therefore, I have created an independent Newtown Township Ant-Discrimination Facebook Group to keep residents informed about the activities of the NTHRC and encourage discussion about discrimination in all its forms and how to combat it. I invite you to Join this Group.
