Subscribe to John Mack's Newtown News Update

Each month I publish several email newsletters: Newtown News Update (NTNU) and News of Interest to Newtown Area Residents (NOI) and Newtown Township Meeting Notes (NTMN) as needed. NTNU includes in-depth coverage of an issue of topical importance to residents. NOI is a collection of summaries of articles curated from various news and other sources focused on a broader range of topics in the Newtown area. NTMN is designed to keep residents informed about important discussions & decisions made at Board of Supervisors meetings. Busy residents do not have the time to attend every public meeting. You need just the facts and links to further information if you care to dig deeper. That is precisely the goal of Newtown Township Meeting Notes.

Summaries of Board of Supervisors/Committee Meetings

BOS IconI write about and comment upon decisions made at Board of Supervisors (BOS) and other public meetings, including Zoning Hearing Board, Planning Commission, and other meetings. Many articles include links to short videos of selected presentations and public comments made at BOS meetings.

Surveys

I often host surveys whenever an important issue comes before the Board of Supervisors, sometimes even before the issue is discussed by the Board. This gives subscribers an opportunity to voice their opinion anonymously about issues. The results are published in the newsletter and shared with the Board of Supervisors and the general public.

Blog Post Updates

My blog focuses on a range of topics such as water quality, preservation of open space, opioid epidemic, etc. The newsletter provides more in-depth versions of blog posts and includes information that was not available at the time the posts were written. This keeps subscribers up to date on important issues affecting Newtown Township.
