Several new members are joining the transition team for Bucks County Commissioner-elects Diane Ellis-Marseglia and Bob Harvie. They include a Lower Makefield Township supervisor and other Bucks community members.
Lower Makefield Township Supervisor John Lewis has officially joined as chair of the Communications and IT review subcommittee. Elected in 2016, Lewis will take up the volunteer position to study “Bucks County’s methods and systems of communications and system technology.”
Secondly, Thomas Lynch will join as the chair of the budget/finance review subcommittee. Lynch graduated from Bishop Egan in 1972 and serves as President of the Board of Directors at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School. In his time, Lynch has had high level positions with Tyco International, Motorola and General Instrument Corporation.
On Wednesday, the transition committee announced the appointment of Kathleen Beveridge as chair of the Health and Human Services review subcommittee. Her team will analyze the related services in Bucks. She is the President of the Board of Directors of the Bucks County Women’s Advocacy Coalition, among other roles.
“I hope that the work of this subcommittee over the next several months truly benefits the residents of Bucks County who rely on County government for services and for their well-being,” Beveridge said.
Most recently, Steve Wray of Newtown Township joined as chair of the economic development review subcommittee. Among other items on a long resume, Wray is Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at Econsult Solutions, Inc.
“Our mission will be to ensure that Bucks County is one of the nation’s premier locations to live, work, and grow a business, and that our residents and employees are able to succeed in a rapidly changing economy,” Wray said.
All subcommittee chairs are expected to have recommendations for the newly elected commissioners by late spring 2020.
