Peggy’s accomplishments include bringing much needed flood relief and storm sewers to both Roslyn and Willow Grove, as well as her community service. On June 1, she will be honored by the Eastern Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce for her Community Service. Peggy’s passion is helping and working with the residents of Ward 8 and assisting them with their everyday needs and township services. In the last year, Peggy’s participation on the Board of Commissioners has taken a different direction and her role as an advocate for the Abington Fire Department and the Abington Police Department is needed more than ever. She believes in doing things – “The Abington Way”, which is with honesty and integrity.

In March 2012, Roger suffered a moderate stroke leaving him with limited ability and as a result, both Peggy and Roger work to promote stroke awareness in our community.
