Want to get involved in the Borough by serving on a committee?

​​The Borough Council is supported in their work and decision-making by Committees, both Borough and County oriented.

These committees are vital to our town government and need diverse voices and perspectives… including Democratic voices! 

If you have special experience or a willingness to serve, you can find details about these Committees (below) and a "Skills Bank" application form on the Borough Website.

Also, don’t hesitate to Contact Us!
A number of Democrats already serve on these committees and would be happy to talk to you!
