Warrington Township hires new manager


A new administrator will be taking over the management of Warrington Township later this summer, officials said.

Angela Benner, who has been Plumstead Township’s manager since late 2019, was unanimously approved for the position by Warrington supervisors last month.

As manager, Benner is responsible for the township’s administrative leadership and running the day-to-day operations of the 13.7-square-mile suburban community, home to nearly 26,000 residents, according the last census.

Benner’s starting salary is $200,000, plus a $5,000 bonus six months after starting on Aug. 26. She’ll be eligible for a 4% raise on Jan. 1 and gets 30 days paid time off annually, township officials said.

The new manager’s salary and benefit package didn’t sit well with one supervisor who, according to published reports, called it “gold plated.” While Andrew Macaulay supported hiring Benner, he said her pay was $40,000 to $50,000 more than the previous manager’s.

Warrington’s prior manager earned $180,000 and had use of a $60,000 car, pointed out supervisor Michael J. Diorka.

Benner earned $157,300 as Plumstead’s manager, according to

Barry Luber served as manager from 2011 until earlier this year when his contract was not renewed, following the election of new supervisors.

A graduate of Delaware Valley University, Benner graduated magna cum laude with a business administration degree. She has served in municipal government since 2007, first as New Britain Township’s parks and recreation coordinator, then as borough manager in Dublin before joining Plumstead.

From 2017 to 2019, Benner was executive director of the Bucks County Association of Township Officials. She has been a member of the Delaware Valley Trust, the Bucks County Solid Waste Committee, the Bucks County Consortium of Managers and the Association of Pennsylvania Municipal Management.
