Supervisor won’t run again

Kennett Township Supervisor Scudder Stevens will not be running for re-election.

Stevens made the announcement at the Jan. 18 supervisors’ meeting after reading a statement that highlighted his last 12 years on the board.

“I’ve taken this time to make this statement for what has occurred in the past 12 years,” he said. “I’ve done this, in part, as a preamble to announce that I do not intend to run again to serve as one of your supervisors. I believe that the supervisor that previously served with me, Whitney Hoffman, and who continue to serve, Rich Leff and Geoff Gamble, have done an excellent job in embracing the responsibilities with which you have entrusted them.”

Stevens’ term ends on Dec. 31, of this year.

The other supervisors, Vice Chairman Richard Leff and Chairman Geoffrey Gamble have terms that will end in 2025 and 2027 respectively.

The supervisors thanked Stevens for his years on the board.

“Your dedication to this township and your thoroughness … is truly commendable,” Gamble said.

Leff said Stevens inspired him to run for the board.

“I remember the first time I saw you talk when you were running for election,” he said. “You inspired me to run two years later.”
