Faull Re-elected to Pa. State Association of Township Supervisors Executive Committee
Members of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors have re-elected Ronald C. Faull, chairman of the Board of Supervisors for Liberty Township in Mercer County, to a second three-year term on the association’s Executive Committee.
The election took place during PSATS’ 91st Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show, held April 21-24 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 1,455 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.
Before his election to the Executive Committee, Faull served on the association’s Finance Committee and currently 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.
The founder and owner of Faull Fabricating, Inc., Faull now serves the company as a consultant and board member. He is also the township’s public works director and served previously as vice chairman of the board of supervisors and as roadmaster.
Faull is past president of the Mercer County Association of Township Officials and a current member of its executive board. He serves on the Finance and Personnel Committee and the Zoning and Subdivision Hearing Board of the Mercer County Regional Planning Commission and is a member of the Mercer County Sewage Agency. He is chairman of the Pine-Harrisville Sewage Authority, vice chairman and past chairman of the Wolf Creek Council of Governments, and a member of the 79-80 Interstate Development Corporation and the American Welding Society.
He is past chairman, vice chairman, secretary, and treasurer of the Mercer County Regional Planning Commission and a past member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.
Faull also is a member of Gideons International and a charter member of the Galilean Baptist Church.
