Malvern Borough Council Chair Jamie Grossman

"I fell in love with Malvern and its embracing people and traditional small-town feel. As an attorney and instructor in government, I believe that citizens must participate in Democracy for our communities to be strong. In turn, government must be open, inclusive and transparent with its citizens. As a member of Borough Council, I want to help lead Malvern as the pressure of suburban sprawl threatens our town's charm and property values. We need to balance growth with quality of life concerns. That means leveraging growth to make our community more vibrant while proactively dealing with problems like traffic congestion, over-development, and public safety."
