Chester County Commissioner Terence Farrell has had a strong hand in helping the county become the best place to live in Pennsylvania and perhaps all of America.
On Tuesday, Nov. 14, he will host his annual fundraiser – entitled “A Pint of Chester County X” from 5:30-7:30 PM at The Farmhouse at People’s Light in Malvern.
Go for the food and beer; stay for the people!
Currently in his third term as Commissioner, Farrell has served as chairman of the Board of Commissioners for 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2016. Under his leadership, the board:
- advanced its development of a strategic plan to increase efficiency in the county’s operations
- passed a balanced budget without raising taxes
- reaffirmed the county’s award-winning open space preservation program for the next decade
The county has received numerous awards for its superior quality of life, for a government and citizenry that has indeed made it “healthy, wealthy, and wise.”
Under Farrell’s oversight, the county installed online streaming video of the Commissioners’ public meetings to increase government transparency. Going forward, he believes we must meet the fiscal challenges imposed by reductions in state and federal funding to the county, while still providing the quality of services that citizens have come to expect in an accountable, responsible manner.
Farrell’s leadership has helped earn a reputation for good government in Chester County with such prestigious rankings as:
- one of the Top 24 best-managed counties in America
- a Top 10 place in America to raise a family
- the healthiest county in Pennsylvania
- the most educated county in Pennsylvania
Individual tickets for “A Pint of Chester County X” are $50. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Click here for more information.
