Pennsylvania State House District 142
Blessed with a mom who taught him how to fight for what’s right, Mark Moffa grew up exposed to the worst of what poverty can do. But he also learned how good government can help — a lot.
Mark and his mom, Lorraine, benefited from wise government programs like housing and nutritional support, strong public schools and Medicaid, and then, eventually, dependable benefits from a union job. These helped him become the first in his family to go to college, and to become a successful small business leader.
After graduating from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 2000, Mark was a newspaper reporter and editor. It was then, 22 years ago, as he was attending local township committee meetings, school board meetings, planning board meetings and the like, that he developed a passion for good local government and an appreciation for the positive impact it can make on people’s lives. His work was honored with about a dozen accolades from the New Jersey Press Association.
For 17 years now, Mark has been the Managing Editor (and now Associate Publisher) of the same small publishing company, directing the editorial content for a variety of magazines. Here too, he’s been recognized numerous times through the National Association of Real Estate Editors journalism awards.
Mark moved to Bucks County in 2005. Public service is not a job for Mark, it’s a passion. He’s served under Republican and Democratic administrations, working on a wide variety of issues, ranging from farmland preservation to hearing zoning appeals, to commercial revitalization. He was a founding member of a new chapter of the Lions Club, helping those in need here in Bucks County. Mark was elected to Penndel’s Borough Council, where he served as vice president and led efforts to cut property taxes two years in a row. Now he’s ready to put his 15 years of experience as a local leader to work for the residents of Middletown, Lower Southampton, Northampton, Langhorne, Langhorne Manor, and Penndel.
