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 that 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?").

Mack's Guide to the Newtown Township Website. Lesson 2: Accessing Financial Information

This lesson will show you how to access important township financial information. It specifically will focus on how to find Bills Lists and Treasurer’s Reports on the Newtown Township's website and how to analyze the data for useful insights. There’s lots of interesting financial information available such as the approved annual budgets, financial statements – which are yearly audits - and monthly treasurer’s reports, etc. These are high-level data, but not data about who gets paid for what. That's the kind of information found in Bills Lists. The Treasurer’s Report gives you expenditure information to-date for each department such as the Police Department and compares that with the total yearly expenditure planned for by the budget.

CORRECTION: In May 2021, Treasurer's Report for Police Expenditures, the year-to-date total expenditure is actually $1.873 million (not $3.8 million as stated in the video), which is 33% of the total 2020 budgeted amount of $5.676.

June 2021 Newtown Fire & Emergency Services Calls for Service Map

Of the 111 calls/incidents in June, 2021, 90 (81%) were in Newtown Township and 12 (11%) were in Newtown Borough. The rest were in Northampton Twp (5), Middletown Twp (3), and Lower Makefield (1). The locations of these calls are shown in the map below (multiple calls to the same location are not shown):

Only 7% of these calls were actual fires; 50% were emergency medical service calls. For more details, access the full June 2021 Monthly Report.

NOTE: To determine which calls were made by the paid Newtown Twp ESD (NT-ESD) versus those made by the volunteer NFA, you must refer to the June 2021 Monthly Report, which includes the date and time of day of each call. NT-ESD operates 5 days a week from 6 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday. NFA handles calls on weekends and other times during the week.
