Millenial mayor of Downingtown Josh Maxwell is everything you wanted Luke Ravenstahl to be and more:
Maxwell, a Downingtown High School graduate and current board member for the Downingtown Community Education Foundation, said that education is one of his top priorities — and if elected, he will serve as an advocate for the 74th District’s schools.
“Creating more opportunities for working families and businesses starts with two things: a strong, properly funded School District and an environment conducive to strong economic growth that allows businesses to open, hire and grow,” Maxwell said.
Among his accomplishments as mayor, Maxwell points to having worked to restart the Downingtown Main Street Association and later served as president of the organization.
In his campaign announcement, Maxwell revealed a number of formal endorsements including: County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone, Former State Representative Paul Drucker and a number of elected or former officials from Caln (Commissioner Lorraine Tindaro), Valley (Patrice Proctor, Board of Supervisors chair, Supervisor Kathy O’Doherty and Joe Sciandra, Supervisor-elect), Sadsbury, South Coatesville (former long-time Mayor James Kennedy), Downingtown (Borough Council President Anthony Gazzerro, Council Member Alex Rakoff, and Member-elect Patricia McGlone) and Coatesville (Joe Hamrick, City Council Vice President).
