Brensinger Re-elected to Pa. State Association of Township Supervisors Executive Committee

Members of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have re-elected Edward A. Brensinger, chairman of the Board of Supervisors for North Lebanon Township in Lebanon County, to a second three-year term on the association’s Executive Committee.

The election took place during PSATS’ 94th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show, held April 17-20 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.

Brensinger serves on the association’s Conference Planning Committee and is a member of its Grassroots Lobbying Network, which addresses legislative issues that affect every Pennsylvanian who lives in a township of the second class. He is also the board liaison to the Townships Between 5,000 and 10,000 Population Committee. He previously served on the association’s Nominations Committee and was chair of the Townships Over 10,000 Population Committee.

Brensinger, a former building contractor, is a farmer and township roadmaster. He is past vice chairman of the board of supervisors, as well as treasurer, and is a former president and first and second vice president of the Lebanon County Association of Township Officials.

Brensinger serves on the Lebanon County Metropolitan Planning Organization Planning Committee and the Lebanon Valley Rails-to-Trails Phase 6 Steering Committee. He is a member of the Mt. Zion Fire Company, and his previous affiliations include roads scholar with the PennDOT LTAP -Local Technical Assistance Program, president of the Union Canal Athletic Association, coach for youth sports and Ebenezer Midget Football, and membership in the Sunset Lions Club and Cedar Crest High School Booster Club.
