Margolis will run to retain borough seat


Wendy Margolis has announced her intention to run for re-election for her Ward 1 seat on the Doylestown Borough Council.

Margolis was appointed to the Council in 2013 to fill a vacated seat, then won re-election in a November 2013 special election to complete the remaining two years of the term. She won a full four-year term in November 2015.

Margolis chairs the environmental and recreation committee of the Council and has been a leader in the effort to design the new park slated for the PennDOT lot on Broad Street. She has successfully advocated for increased recycling in the borough, particularly at the many events held in Doylestown each year. She has also initiated an effort to reduce the use single-use plastics and Styrofoam in the borough.

“I am really excited about so many things that are happening in Doylestown – the new park, the new borough hall and police center, new events such as the Bucks County Book Festival, the community outreach led by our new police chief Karl Knott,” said Margolis.

Margolis has lived in the Maplewood neighborhood of the borough for 26 years. She participates with the volunteer Maplewood gardening group that maintains the perennial garden at the entrance to the neighborhood and has advocated for reducing the use of chemicals used to maintain the fields at Veteran’s Memorial park.

Margolis also serves on the borough’s water, public safety, and personnel committees.
