Local leaders graduate from Municipal Government Academy


Chris Bauer, secretary-treasurer of Haycock Township, and James McComb and Ken Lichtenstein, supervisors of Plumstead Township, recently graduated from the PSATS Municipal Government Academy (PMGA), a leadership and municipal education program of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS).

The 2022 class of PMGA graduates received diplomas and certificates of completion April 25 during the association’s Annual Educational Conference in Hershey.

PMGA participants earn primary, secondary, and elective points by attending classroom workshops and webinars and other PSATS educational opportunities, such as the Annual Educational Conference, Human Resources and Labor Management Institute, Boot Camp for Township Officials, and Grassroots Advocacy Day. In this year’s graduating class, seven individuals, including Bauer, McComb and Lichtenstein, completed the diploma program by earning 60 points from across the four tracks. Three individuals completed the certificate program by earning 30 points in the administration track.
