Andrea Ahern and Debbie Verwoerd Have Announced Their Candidacy for #NewtownPA Supervisor | Newtown News of Interest |

Newtown Township residents Andrea Ahern and Debbie Verwoerd have announced their intention to run for Newtown Township supervisor this year. They will be seeking the Republican nomination for two seats up for election in November.


The two women said they heard the concerns of their neighbors loud and clear while campaigning for candidates last year "The residents of Newtown Township want a return to basics at the township level, namely, better stewardship of taxpayer money, improved communication with residents, smart growth that is directed by township leaders and not developers, and a move away from the partisan politicking that has no place in local government," they said.


Ahern is a resident of Eagle Ridge where she chairs the Homeowners Association's finance committee. She has also been an active voice in fighting against over-development in the township.


A lifelong Newtown resident, Ahern is also a former candidate for Newtown Township Supervisor, having run in 2021 with incumbent supervisor, Kyle Davis.


Verwoerd has called Newtown home for nearly a decade and is a resident of Eagle Glenn. A marketing vice president at a global Fortune 500 company, she said she knows what it takes to run a successful business.


Kyle Davis, a current member of the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors, voiced his enthusiastic support for the candidacy of both Ahern and Verwoerd.


“I couldn’t be more thrilled at the prospect of having two such strong and successful business women on the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors.” said Davis. He further added, “These two potential candidates will bring much needed, real world corporate experience, talent and strong female voices to the board of supervisors and I would love to have them on the board with me.”
