Steve believes preserving our community's character and keeping Havertown the great place to live and raise a family - that led him to choose Havertown to reside and raise his own family is first and foremost the motivating factor that drives him to continue to serve the residents of the 1st ward and Haverford Township. Steve has always stated: "The reason I continue to serve the residents of the Township is so that I can make a meaningful, positive contribution to preserve and improve our quality of life. Every resident deserves the opportunity to express their concerns and views - which is why I hold regular town hall meetings with residents and Township officials".
