Welcome

My name is John Mack and on January 2, 2018, I was sworn in as a Newtown Township Supervisor Definition to fill a 2-year term after winning in the 2017 Municipal election.

It's time now to run again. This time for a full 6-year term! 

I submitted my petition to be on the Primary Election ballot to the Bucks County Board of Elections on Monday, March 11, 2019. My fellow Supervisor Dennis Fisher will also be on the Ballot. 

See you at the polls on Primary Day, May 21, 2019!

A Healthy Environment!

When I took the oath of office as Newtown Supervisor, I swore to uphold the Pennsylvania Constitution. Article I, Section 27 of the Pennsylvania Constitution affirms that, “The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment.”

As someone with degrees in chemistry and biochemistry, I am concerned about chemicals in our environment whether they are contaminants in our water and air or addictive drugs.

As a Supervisor I have made it a goal to do all I can to keep the public informed about these issues and, especially, to do whatever is possible to fight the current Opioid epidemic. Through my efforts, for example, the Township now offers a 24/7  drop-off program for unused prescription and other drugs (read “My Case for a 24/7 Drug Drop-Off Box” and “Newtown Has a 24/7 Drug Drop Box”).

I was instrumental in bringing an anti-fracking resolution up for a vote by Supervisors. Resolution 2018-R-10 calls upon the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to “enact a complete and permanent ban on natural gas development and hydraulic fracturing and all related activities (including drilling, fracking, wastewater processing and discharges from and water withdrawals for drilling and fracking operations) throughout the basin.” When I learned that the resolution was not included in official comments to the DRBC, I made it a point to summarize the major points of the Resolution at the June 13, 2018, public meeting of the DRBC (view a video of my presentation).

I Oppose the Elcon Incinerator

Proposed “emission limits” in the current PA DEP Definition permit application: nitrogen oxides – 23.4 tons per year; carbon monoxide – 36.6 tons per year; sulfur oxides – 24.2 tons per year; volatile organic compounds – 10.1 tons per year; particulate matter – 10.5 tons per year; for hydrochloric acid – 6.3 tons per year!

Note that the 2016 Newtown Township Resolution opposing this project estimated that “the incinerator treatment process will produce over 39 tons of air emissions” whereas the recent data cited above adds up to more than 111 tons – or nearly three times as much!
