Bruce Smith Chairman, Asst. Secretary/Treasurer
bsmith@fallowfieldtownship.org Bruce Smith

Bruce was born & raised in the Mon Valley and is a 1971 graduate of Belle Vernon Area High School. He and his wife Joann have been residents of Fallowfield Township since 1978 where they raised their daughter Jennifer, now living out of state. Bruce spent his professional career with Corning Inc. / World Kitchen in Charleroi where he retired in 2008. Most of his career was spent in Maintenance Management & Machine Shop Management. Bruce is currently employed at Mon Valley YMCA as their Facilities Manager. He is also a martial arts/self defense instructor and a Life Member of the National Rifle Association where he was previously a Certified Firearms Instructor.

A Master Scuba Diver, Bruce is currently the Commander of Mon Valley Divers - Rescue Search & Recovery Team and was previously Fallowfield Township's Emergency Management Coordinator. He is also a current member of the Township Planning Commission.

Taking office in January 2014 for a six-year term, Bruce's primary goals are: (1) to prepare the Township for the future by promoting growth, both residential & commercial, in order to strengthen our tax base; (2) to encourage participation by a growing number of Township residents in all aspects of local government & activities. ( 3 ) To create a "transparent" system of local government that can hopefully be understood & accepted by all. "Residents might not necessarily agree with how all of their tax dollars are being spent but they have the right to at least be aware of and understand the process."

"With the success of the Alta Vista Business Park and the anticipated benefits of the Marcellus Shale resources, hopefully it's finally our turn to thrive".
