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 on 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?").

My Big Idea: A More Open, Transparent Government!

We need an open and honest government that works for the good of everyone in the Newtown Township community.  

As a Supervisor, I have  advocated for more effective print and digital media communications that will inform and engage residents and businesses regarding issues before the Board of Supervisors (aka BOS Definition).

Through my website, blog, and email newsletter as well as social media, I have kept residents informed about issues that have come before the BOS and the opinions and decisions of elected officials as well as the consultants, committees and commissions that advise the Board.

I will continue to encourage the township to use technology (such as the mobile phone based Savvy Citizen notification system) to improve and expand official township communications so that even after I am gone, residents will benefit from a more transparent local government.

Newtown Township Tables Vote on "LOVE is LOVE DAY" Resolution

My motion to pass a "LOVE is LOVE DAY" resolution inspired by PA State Senator @SenSantarsiero was tabled - no vote - at the February 12, 2020, Newtown Township Board of Supervisors meeting. Meanwhile, the Newtown Borough Council already unanimously passed its own version of the resolution. I hope the Newtown Township Board will vote on this resolution - and pass it - at its next public meeting on Feb 26. Background here. The following is a draft of the Resolution I proposed:
