Newtown Township Supervisor Elen Snyder announced this week she will running for reelection.
Snyder, a Democrat who has lived in the township for six years and in Bucks County for 35 years, was first elected in 2021 for a two-year term.
Snyder touted her work in negotiating the recent fire service agreement between Newtown Borough and Newtown Township.
Snyder said she championed the 2022 “Resolution for the Reduction of the Use of Single Use Plastics” that was passed with the intention of reducing waste. She described herself as a “lifelong environmentalist.”
“I support the rezoning and revitalization of the Newtown Business Commons to attract more businesses and revenue to the township,” Snyder said. “There’s an opportunity to take a portion of our township that is underused and direct smart growth there.”
Snyder said she also created the “Friends of Roberts Ridge Park” to preserve open space.
“Snyder will continue to listen to members of the community on all issues to ensure that the quality of life of Newtown residents remains her top priority,” her campaign said.
In her announcement, Snyder said she is also a board member of the Newtown Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority.
She has two adult children and a golden retriever.
