It is an honor and a privilege to serve as Mayor of West Reading. The last eight months have reinforced, in me, the reputation West Reading has in Berks County; West Reading is a great community to live and raise a family. West Reading is great place to work. West Reading is a great place to visit, shop and enjoy culinary treats at one of our restaurants and microbreweries. I want to take this opportunity to thank the residents of West Reading for their cooperation and understanding with large events that sometimes require residents to adjust for a short period of time while the borough hosts various festivals and street fairs.  The residents have been very helpful during these times. Thank you so much. You make these events a success and you add to the community spirit that visitors to West Reading recognize and makes them want to come back to West Reading to visit, dine and shop.

Our borough is fortunate to have the leadership it has today. Our borough administration, borough council, police department, fire department, recreation department and streets department are led by individuals who are focused on responsibly managing the business of the borough and protecting our residents and their properties. Please take the time to thank them when you can.  They take their jobs very seriously and they are dedicated to serving you.

As Mayor of West Reading, it is my desire to increase our, already, exemplary sense of community. Yes. This is the message how far little random acts of kindness can go. When we unite and identify as a community, we improve our standard of living significantly. The payoff from small acts of kindness toward your neighbor is not immediate but in the long run, we all benefit. Please help your neighbors who cannot help themselves. This is as simple as checking on an elderly neighbor, cutting the grass or shoveling snow for someone, picking up trash or debris along a borough street or committing a few hours of time to the borough with one of its many events.  YOU and I are the West Reading community. Please consider being the citizen who makes a difference in her or his neighbor’s life. Chances are your efforts will inspire another resident of West Reading to do the same.

Should you have any Borough-related issue(s) you would like to discuss please feel free to contact me at 610-373-0111 ext. 228 between the hours of 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Monday thru Friday. After hours please leave a voicemail at this extension.
