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. I will do my best to work as a Supervisor serving all Newtown Township residents.
Honesty · Integrity · Experience
As a Supervisor, I go the extra mile to alert my constituents to new and developing issues and utilize my position as an elected official to obtain input from local residents as to significant issues facing our community (e.g., via “Meet Mack Monday” Zoom meetings). I keep busy learning about and making decisions about issues of concern to residents, including traffic and pedestrian safety, the pollution of our streams and lakes, perfluoronated hydrocarbons (PFAS) in our drinking water, preservation of open space, fiscal responsibility, and overdevelopment (read “Newtown Area Residents Are Very Concerned About Overdevelopment”). 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?").
On 15 February 2024, the Bucks County NAACP hosted a "Briefing" at the Bucks County Community Collage on Race & Policing in Bucks County. I audio recorded the 15-minute "Key Findings" session presented by John Blevins who is a member of NAACP’s Criminal Justice and Education Committee. To create this video, I selected what I considered the most appropriate graphics and data from the BC NAACP's "2023 Report on Reimagining Public Safety", which you can find here: https://rebrand.ly/NAACP_RIPS
Although Mr. Blevins did not include results from any specific police agency, I added some specific data and information from the Report regarding Newtown Township. Specific data are available in the Appendices to the Report.
