Mayor’s Page

Chester Township is as good as it gets.

It is my privilege to serve as Chester Township’s mayor and to ensure our community is best positioned to build on its many strengths long into the future.

My vision for Chester is one where three generations of a family are able to enjoy a high quality of life together: where our children are safe and well-served by parks and recreation programs; adult residents can afford to invest in their homes; and our seniors enjoy quality services for the taxes they pay.

We must also manage serious challenges, especially worsening economic conditions and ever-increasing mandates from state government. We have big challenges ahead of us, but we also have big goals. 

As mayor, my top priorities are to:

  1. Deliver smart budgets that respect the taxpayer
  2. Promote local volunteerism
  3. Protect open space 
  4. Prioritize infrastructure improvements that enhance quality of life
  5. Provide collaborative leadership and frequent communication

​If you would like to discuss these priorities, share your own, or simply have a conversation with me, please email

Best regards,

Michael Inganamort, Mayor
