Shirley Yannich, Chair, Board of Supervisors
I have been a resident of Warrington Township since 2005. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Rutgers University with a major in American Studies and a Certificate in Urban Planning. My Rutgers Master Degree is in the field of Executive Public Administration. After raising five children I obtained my Bachelor’s when I was 45 and my Master’s when I was 53. My 30 year career in government consisted of being a township planner in central New Jersey and working for the State of New Jersey as a Local Budget Reviewer ensuring that taxpayers did not pay for the processing and review of land development applications by updating and enacting developer’s filing and escrow accounts. I was elected to the Warrington Township Board of Supervisors in 2012, served a two year vacancy then was re-elected in 2014 for a six year term. My planning experience and education has helped me envision the future of Warrington Township.
Fred Gaines, Member, Board of Supervisor
With over 45-years as a Professional Environmental Engineer in Pennsylvania and four other States, a Professional Planner in New Jersey and a Diplomate in the American Academy of Environmental Engineers specializing in Water Supply and Wastewater I felt that my education and experience could be beneficial in minimizing if not preventing any issues when at the end of 2015 a Board of Supervisor vacancy occurred and the Township simultaneously faced a water supply contamination crisis. These reasons, as well as my many years of working with government clients and serving in various management positions with Inter-State Government agencies and private industry led to my volunteering to serve on the Board of Supervisors. My advanced Degree in Management, as well as my experience with Federal Laws and government contracts has proven to be extremely useful.
Historically, I have continuously served the citizens of Warrington Township, starting shortly after I moved into the community, joining the newly formed Environmental Activities Council first as Vice-Chairman under Fred Achenbach, later as Chairman; as a member of the Zoning Hearing Board the Planning Department under Chairman Anderson, and as a member of the Planning Commission under then Chairwoman Shirley Yannich, and then as its Chairman. Since February 2016 I have served as a member of the Board of Supervisors.
I look forward to working closely with the members of the Board and the professionals on the Township staff as we continue to respond the needs and concerns of the citizens by controlling the Township’s growth, by maintaining its rural character as it matures into a thriving, secure, economically stable, suburban community.
Matthew W. Hallowell, Sr. – Member, Board of Supervisors
As a resident of Warrington Township during the past 48 years I have served our township in various capacities, some of which includes Warminster Township Engineer, Water and Sewer Authority Engineer servicing Bucks County municipalities, and volunteering on Warrington Township Boards. I also worked for Boards of Supervisors and Authority Board members to aid in engineering development in their townships.
I decided to offer my time and experience by serving on Township Volunteer Boards and joined the Youth Aid Panel in 1984. In 1985 to 1995 I served on Warrington Township Planning Commission Board and from 1989 to 1995 on the Bucks County Planning Commission. From 1999 to 2010 I served on the Warrington Township Building Code Appeals Board. Then in 2011 I ran for Supervisor of Warrington Township.
As a Supervisor I enjoy the opportunity to utilize my education, engineering and business experience and professional affiliations to help our Township and its residents in order to better our community.
Carol T. Baker, Member, Board of Supervisors
I have lived in Warrington for 52 years. My education consists of a B.S in chemistry from Arcadia University. I have worked as a chemist in academia and corporate research, while continuing to be involved as a volunteer/advocate in the Bucks County community.
In the 1970’s, I joined the League of Woman Voters (LWV), which is a non-partisan, educational and issue-oriented organization. As their land use chair, our committee researched ways to help protect communities from unregulated growth.
Until a few years ago, I served on the Bucks County National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) board of directors and in other capacities including their housing chair.
