Davidek Elected to Township Supervisors Association’s Executive Committee

Members of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have elected Jason Davidek, vice chairman of the board of supervisors for Fawn Township in Allegheny County, to a three-year term on the association’s Executive Committee.

The election took place during PSATS’ 92nd Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show, held April 13-16 in Hershey. This is the largest municipal event of its kind in the state, with close to 4,000 attendees. The conference attracted township officials from every county in Pennsylvania except Philadelphia, which has no townships.

The seven-member Executive Committee, the association’s five officers, and the immediate past president make up the Executive Board, which is responsible for managing the affairs of the state association. The board meets frequently throughout the year to oversee association business and plan new projects that will benefit member townships.

The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors represents Pennsylvania’s 1,454 townships of the second class and is committed to preserving and strengthening township government and securing greater visibility and involvement for townships in the state and federal political arenas. Townships of the second class cover 95 percent of Pennsylvania’s land mass and represent more residents — 5.5 million — than any other type of political subdivision in the commonwealth.

Davidek is a member of the association’s Grassroots Lobbying Network, which addresses legislative issues that affect every Pennsylvanian who lives in a township of the second class, and previously served on the PSATS Resolutions Committee.

Davidek, director of public relations and transportation for South Butler County Schools, is also director and first vice president for the Allegheny County Association of Township Officials. He previously served as second vice president.

He also is a member of the Allegheny Valley North Council of Government and a board member for the Pennsylvania School Public Relations Association and the Bull Creek Rod & Gun Club. Davidek serves as an elder for the Pleasant Unity Presbyterian Church and is a member of the Penn State New Kensington for the Future Campaign Committee.
