Moira Mulroney
Candidate – 5th Ward


Moira Mulroney is the Democratic candidate for the Radnor Township Board of Commissioners Ward 5. She brings to the role a life spent in community service and relationship building. Moira is an advocate for responsible government and civic engagement. She believes those elected to office are have the duty to serve as the eyes, ears and voices of their constituents. She will be focused on issues facing our community, such as: fiscal responsibility and transparency; traffic control and streets management; residential and business growth respectful of Radnor’s community and culture; and funding for our schools and infrastructure. Moira will use her background as a consensus builder to bring civility to public discourse with a priority placed upon bipartisanship.
A recognized nonprofit leader, Moira is the Director of Development & Communications for the Support Center for Child Advocates (Child Advocates), Philadelphia’s legal aid and social services agency serving abused and neglected children. She oversees a staff of six fundraisers and marketing professionals to bolster awareness of the mission and to raise all charitable dollars for the agency’s $4.5 million operating budget. She is often asked to speak on issues of nonprofit management and effective fundraising methods, and in 2016, was recognized with the SmartCEO Magazine’s Executive Management Award. Moira also represents a child client as a Child Advocates Volunteer Attorney. Moira’s commitment to public service began right out of college working for an Illinois state legislator where she managed constituent services for residents in Chicago’s Southside and learned the power of good advocacy and the importance of building trusting professional relationships. In 1995, she moved to the area to begin her studies at Villanova Law School (’98); she was hired upon graduation by Philadelphia DA Lynne Abraham. For more than 7 years she served as an Assistant District Attorney in the boutique Legislation Unit where she developed state and local legislative strategies to pass sensible crime laws in the Commonwealth, working on issues such as youth violence reduction, gun control, child abuse and invasion of privacy. She also developed the office’s first formal grants program raising $4.5 million annually and advised the District Attorney and staff on crime laws, crime prevention initiatives, and law enforcement policy. Moira later translated her experience to the nonprofit sector, first as the Director of Grants at the Philadelphia Zoo, then as the Director of Philanthropic Giving at WXPN Public Radio, responsible for raising more than $6 million annually at each institution. Moira’s connection to Radnor began 30 years ago when her parents moved into the old William Thomas Toll House on Lancaster Avenue in Rosemont and her father became the director of the Graduate Tax LLM Program at Villanova Law School. In 2009, she moved to Bryn Mawr with her husband, her stepson (Radnor ’16) and their rescue dogs. Moira was a Board member at the William Way LGBT Community Center and is currently serving as a Radnor Democratic Committee Representative for Ward 5 Precinct 1. For fun, Moira plays the cello and rides a 1979 BMW motorcycle, when it’s not broken down.

SEAN FARHY
Candidate – 7th Ward (Incumbent)


Sean Farhy was appointed to the Radnor Board of Commissioners in 2017 and won a special election in May of 2018 to fill out the remaining year and a half term.  He has lived on the Main Line his entire life and in Ward 7 for the past 19 years.  Sean earned his Bachelors degree from  University of Delaware and later received his MBA From Drexel in 2007.  He is the husband to his wife Carrie and together they have two children, Jackson and Isaac.  Prior to becoming a small business owner, Sean worked in the financial services industry for 15 years as a trader, analyst, portfolio manager.

IMPORTANT PRIMARY ELECTION INFORMATION!

 

FROM THE CHAIR:

Jack Larkin is our Incumbent First Ward Commissioner, having been elected in May, 2018 to fill an unexpired term. He has done a tremendous job in his first year and is already now the Vice-President of the Board. He is a superb lawyer and has brought his experience, insight and abilities to the Board. We are lucky to have him serving Radnor.
Our Third Ward candidate for commissioner is Damien Enderle. He grew up in Radnor/St. Davids and attended Radnor High School. A civic-minded long term resident, Damien has served as a volunteer firefighter and board member with the Radnor Fire Company. Public service is important to Damien and he is a role model for all of us.
Moira Mulroney is our Democratic candidate for Fifth Ward Commissioner. She is an accomplished attorney with a long history of public service that started years ago right out of college. Her connection to Radnor goes back 30 years, and for many reasons she will be a fantastic addition to the Board of Commissioners, which currently has only one female member.
In Ward Seven, Sean Farhy is running for re-election after being appointed in 2017 then elected in May, 2018 to fill an unexpired term. Sean has lived on the Main Line his entire life and is a small business owner. It is clear that he thoroughly enjoys his role as a passionate advocate for his Ward Seven constituents and for the township at large, and he has earned and deserves re-election.

Please join me on Sunday, May 12, 2019 from 3:30 to 5:30,  I will be hosting an event for Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney at my home (238 Chamounix Road, St. Davids). Jim and I have been friends for more than 40 years, since even before I was first elected Democratic Committee person at age 20, in South Philadelphia in 1978.  We both worked together in South Philly’s 39th Ward until I moved to Radnor in 1987. Jim does have Primary Election opponents and needs to raise money to win. He has done a great job in Philly and I hope we get a big turnout to help him!

Our next meeting will be held on May 15, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Library. We will be distributing election materials the following Saturday and details will be announced. 
 
Democratically yours,
George Badey
Chair, Radnor Democratic Committee
