Elen Snyder Appointed to Newtown Environmental Advisory Council | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

At its September 25, 2019, public meeting, the Newtown Board of Supervisors (BOS) approved environmental activist Elen Snyder to fill a vacancy in the township's Environmental Advisory Council (EAC). Voting in favor were Supervisors John Mack, Dennis Fisher, Phil Calabro, and Linda Bobrin. Supervisor Kyle Davis was absent.

In her application letter, Ms. Snyder cited her family recycling business in Falls Township, her interest in the future of plastics recycling, and the "Tree Tender" title awarded to her by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.

"It's very exciting to be approved as an official member of the EAC," said Elen when she learned of the BOS decision. "My passion is first and foremost the environment and specifically climate change and those things that we can do here in our township that will help our children inherit a planet that is cleaner with a focus on getting rid of single use plastics. Also, eliminating pesticides that poison our watershed."
