I've been a resident of the Echo Valley neighborhood of Newtown Township for over 23 years. Four years ago, I attended my first township public meeting. Since then, I've attended many township meetings and have met many township residents interested and involved in township government both as elected officials, volunteers on township boards and attendees at township meetings and events. I hope to share information from a resident's point of view about Newtown Township. I hope that this information serves to encourage other residents to get involved in their township by attending township meetings, getting involved with township sponsored events and activities and holding their elected and appointed officials accountable to the residents of Newtown Township.
