A lifelong resident of the area, Democrat Ron Graham first took office in East Pikeland Township’s Board of Supervisors in 2008. He has served as Chairman of the Board since 2009. Ron believes that efficient and successful governance is based on integrity, open communication, compromise rather than confrontation, and sound fiscal organization.
In his role as an elected Supervisor, Ron supports projects that promote and maintain open space and preserve the historic French Creek environment. He is a past president of Green Valleys Watershed Association, committed to the protection of French Creek, Pickering Creek, Pigeon Creek, Valley Creek, and Stony Run.
Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Ron lived away for a period of time due to military service and job opportunities, but chose to return to Kimberton in Chester County, Pennsylvania, the village where Ron’s grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather had all been farmers. Ron with his wife, Lyn, raised three daughters – all of whom are college graduates, with one now a practicing physician and one a practicing attorney – in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Ron graduated from Edison State University with a B.S. in aviation science, and received his J.D. from Widener University Delaware Law School. He has his Masters degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania.
Ron is a founding partner of the law firm Graham & Mauer, P.C., with offices based in Valley Forge and Harrisburg.
