Each month I publish two email newsletters: Newtown News Update (NTNU) and News of Interest to Newtown Area Residents. NTNU keeps subscribers up-to-date on what's going on regarding decisions made at Board of Supervisors and at other public meetings. News of Interest is a collection of summaries of articles curated from various sources focused on a broader range of topics. The opinions expressed in these newsletters are solely mine and do not represent the views of any other person or entity.

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.


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.

And Much More!
