"I've lived in Malvern Borough for 46 years. I've raised my children in Malvern, worked at small businesses in Malvern and I plan to retire in Malvern. I decided to serve as Mayor to give back to this community that has given me so much. As Mayor, I work diligently to represent borough residents, bringing their concerns to the council and/or the borough manager. Although the Mayor's main responsibility is the police department, I also try to be involved in all facets of our government in order to serve the public good." — Dave Burton, Malvern Mayor
