Lower Gwynedd Township Supervisor
Danielle Duckett is a life-long fourth-generation Lower Gwynedd resident. She is a mother, caretaker, disability rights advocate and career public servant. Upon graduation from Temple University, Danielle began her career as a civil servant with the Montgomery County Department of Behavior Health and Intellectual Disabilities. While completing a public administration graduate program with a certification in city management at Villanova University, Danielle had the opportunity to be mentored/trained by Lower Gwynedd Township’s long-time manager, Larry Comunale.
Danielle continued her public service with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a regional licensing administrator for individuals with disabilities. Currently, she serves as policy director for the office of State Rep. Chris Rabb, where she oversees and implements legislative and funding measures that positively impact Southeastern Pennsylvania and the Commonwealth as a whole.
Danielle has spent her adult life being an advocate. She has advocated her entire career for those without a voice and marginalized. The community is one where there is rampant insiderism and lack of planning for a future by the elected township supervisors. The community as a whole is not being represented and is in dire need of an advocate. The city must adopt an anti-discrimination policy, pass a full resolution for fair districting, and focus on environmental justice for the future. The current administration has not addressed any of these issues and over the past few years has been reluctant to answer questions about these topics. Danielle is a policy director for a progressive state representative. She advocates for all residents of the commonwealth through the development of people-powered legislation. And she feels that it is time that her education and skills be an asset to the small community that four generations of her family helped build.
