Boni Re-elected Assistant Secretary-Treasurer of Pa. State Association of Township Supervisors

Members of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have re-elected Andrew “A.J.” Boni, chairman of the board of supervisors for Perry Township, Fayette County, to a second one-year term as assistant secretary-treasurer.

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 assistant secretary-treasurer is a member of the association’s Executive Board, which is made up of PSATS’ five officers, seven Executive Committee members, and the immediate past president. The board is responsible for managing the affairs of the state association and 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 represent more residents — 5.5 million Pennsylvanians — than any other type of political subdivision in the commonwealth.

Prior to election to his current post last year, Boni had served the association as a member of the Executive Committee, the Publications-Public Relations Committee, and the Grassroots Lobbying Network, which addresses legislative issues that affect every Pennsylvanian who lives in a township of the second class. In the past, he was also board liaison to the Secretary-Manager Committee and the Townships Between 2,000 and 5,000 Population Committee. He received the association’s President’s Leadership Award in 2008 and is a 2015 recipient of the Governor’s Award for Local Government Excellence.

Boni is the emergency management coordinator for Perry Township and currently serves on the Governor’s Local Government Advisory Committee, the Pennsylvania Sewage Advisory Committee, and the Fayette County Behavioral Health Administration Advisory Board. He is chief of the Perry Township Volunteer Fire Department, second vice president of the Fayette County Firemen’s Association, and a member of the Western Pennsylvania Firemen’s Association. Additional affiliations include the Star Junction Fish and Game Club, the National Road Heritage Corridor, and Gummert Lodge No. 252.

He previously served as roadmaster of the township, as well as president, vice president, and second vice president of the Fayette County Association of Township Officials. He is a past member of the Southwest Pennsylvania Commission and is the past president and treasurer of the Perryopolis Lions Club. Boni and his wife, Suzanne, live in Star Junction and have a daughter, Alexis.
