A 20-year resident of West Goshen, Shaun was appointed as Township Supervisor in April 2019 to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Mary LaSota.  Shaun is a candidate for the unexpired four years of the 6-year term. He brings to the role 37-years of business senior management experience with responsibility for facility budgets in excess of $100 million and disciplined capital project investment.  Originally from the U.K., Shaun received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Birmingham and became a U.S. citizen in 2002.  Shaun’s appointment to the Board of Supervisors was by a unanimous bi-partisan vote of the four remaining supervisors, having come to the attention of the Board through his work as a 3-year member and secretary of the West Goshen Sewer Authority. If elected to complete the term, his focus will be on continued smart investment in our public infrastructure to minimize the need for expensive emergency repairs. 


Shaun appreciates the quality of services and great amenities West Goshen has offered him and his wife Tracey and their two adult children John and Melissa.  He hopes to earn your vote to continue to work as a team with the Board, township staff, and residents to ensure that West Goshen remains a wonderful place to live, work, and play.
