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!
