Being a lifelong resident of Skippack Township and now raising my three children here, it is the honor of a lifetime to serve as Supervisor. Our township is strong, vibrant, and resilient; and my hope is to ensure Skippack remains the greatest small town in America for all future generations!

Supervisors 2

Barbara McGinnis

I have been blessed to call Skippack my home for the last 36 years. Through those years I have established and built my business at Three Diamonds Stable and saw changes to areas of our community. This was one of the reasons I ran for Supervisor, to continue to keep the charm and history of Skippack balanced with new ideas. I'm proud that my colleagues and I have accomplished that and will continue to do so for the community.
