Stowe Elected to Township Association’s Executive Committee

Members of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have elected Charles O. Stowe, chairman of the board of supervisors for Allegheny Township in Butler County, to a full three-year term on the association’s Executive Committee. He was appointed last year to fill a vacancy on the committee.

The election took place during PSATS’ 95th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show, held April 23-26 in Hershey. This is the largest municipal event of its kind in the state, with close to 4,000 attendees. The conference attracted township officials from every county in Pennsylvania except Philadelphia, which has no townships.

The seven-member Executive Committee, the association’s five officers, and the immediate past president make up the Executive Board, which is responsible for managing the affairs of the state association. The board meets frequently throughout the year to oversee association business and plan new projects that will benefit member townships.

The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors represents Pennsylvania’s 1,454 townships of the second class and is committed to preserving and strengthening township government and securing greater visibility and involvement for townships in the state and federal political arenas. Townships of the second class cover 95 percent of Pennsylvania’s land mass and represent more residents — 5.5 million — than any other type of political subdivision in the commonwealth.

Stowe serves as the board liaison to PSATS’ Townships Under 2,000 Population Committee and previously was the chair of the Nominations Committee and a member of the Rules and Finance committees.

Stowe, a farmer, is president of the Butler County Association of Township Officials. He previously served as first and second vice president for the county group in addition to vice chairman of the Allegheny Township Board of Supervisors.

Stowe serves as director and chair of the Butler County Conservation District and president of the Municipal Code Association. He is an elder of the Scrubgrass Stone Church, where he attends with his wife, Mary.
