Chestnuthill Township Supervisors Share Thoughts on Friend, Colleague Dave Fleetwood

Thursday August 8th, 2013

The board of supervisors of Chestnuthill Township, Monroe County, asked PSATS to share the following statement they provided about the loss of supervisor Dave Fleetwood in Monday night’s shootings at the Ross Township board of supervisors meeting:

“The staff at Chestnuthill Township was saddened to learn that one of the victims of the Ross Township shooting was Chestnuthill Township supervisor David Fleetwood, who also served as the Ross Township zoning officer.

Dave was the epitome of a dedicated public servant. He had a long history of public service to the West End of Monroe County. He was heavily involved in Little League baseball, the Chestnuthill Historical Society, including the 250th Anniversary Committee, and the West End Park and Open Space Commission, and had nearly six years of service as a Chestnuthill Township supervisor.

Dave was a great friend and colleague and touched a great number of lives. He will be sadly missed by all of us at Chestnuthill Township. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dave’s family and the other victims and their families.

We commend Bernie Kozen, executive director of the West End Park and Open Space Commission, for his heroic effort in subduing the shooter and looking after his friend and colleague, Dave Fleetwood.”

David Fleetwood, a supervisor for Chestnuthill Township in Monroe County and a zoning officer for Ross Township, was fatally shot during a meeting of the Ross Township board of supervisors on Monday, Aug. 5.
