Newtown Township Supervisor Jennifer Dix resigned from the Board of Supervisors at the end of June.
Dix left the governing body after 4.5 years because her family is moving to New Hampshire.
“I can’t take credit for anything on my own, but I appreciated working with each and every one of you, including the administration and our consultants,” she said.
Dix thanked fellow supervisors, including Republican Supervisor Kyle Davis, for their support. She said representing Newtown Township has been a “team effort.”
During her comments, Dix gave special thanks to Phil Calabro, chairman of the board.
“You are the most dedicated and humble public servant that I have seen. You’ve been on this board for 12.5 years and never missed a meeting. If you think about it that’s close to 400 meetings,” she said.
Dix did not shy away from what she felt were stains on Newtown Township. She said “some degree corruption” from previous leadership over decades created a “toxic environment of greed and entitlement.”
When asked by resident John D’Aprille about her corruption comments, Dix said that FBI special agents visited her home earlier this year to speak about two former supervisors and a project in Newtown and the ongoing corruption case relating to Lower Southampton officials.
“I’ll just leave it at that,” she said.
Calabro presented Dix with a plaque to recognize her service.
The Board of Supervisors has until the end of July to fill her seat.
