The transition has begun.
Lower Makefield attorney Tom Jennings, who works with FisherBroyles LLP, is leading the transition team for returning Commissioner Diane Ellis-Marseglia and Commissioner-elect Bob Harvie. Come January, the two will hold a Democratic majority on the Bucks County Commissioners.
“Bob and I are thrilled to have someone with Tom’s esteemed background and qualifications leading our transition team,” Ellis-Marseglia said. “Tom is widely known throughout Bucks County for his work related to facility redevelopment particularly in the environmental sector.”
“I am pleased to lead this historic effort and thank Diane and Bob for their support,” Jennings said.
Jennings has worked with a number of regional and Bucks County boards for nonprofits. Along with his wife, he was recognized as Citizen Diplomats of the Year in 2017. He previously chaired a transition at Citizen Diplomacy International.
The transition team additionally includes experienced attorneys Michael Clarke, managing partner of Rudolph Clarke LLC; Kyong Ha Growney, partner of Curtin & Heefner LLP; and tax attorney Gregory C. McCarthy.
Clarke is solicitor for Falls Township and has dealt with Harvie in his role as an elected Supervisor over the years.
Jennings said the transition team intends to look at how county government works and report back to the Commissioners.
“We look forward to hearing from Bucks County residents as we analyze aspects of county government,” Jennings said.
Republican State Rep. Gene DiGirolamo was elected to fill the minority for the Commissioners.
