Councilman Alexander (Alex) Myers is a third-generation Hatboro resident and twice-decorated Army veteran with a rich history of community involvement. His volunteer experience includes working with the Hatboro Fall Fun Festival, with the Union Library of Hatboro, as an EMT-Basic with Second Alarmers, and he previously served one term on Hatboro Council’s Vacancy Board.
Currently, Alex serves as the President for Hatboro’s Elm Street Philanthropic Board, is a member of Rotary International, and serves as a board member for The Welcome Project PA, an organization that strives to be a diverse and safe space for marginalized and vulnerable populations.
Alex received an honorable discharge from the Army after serving in California as a Korean Linguist, and at the Willow Grove Naval Air Station as an Intelligence Analyst. As a volunteer EMT-Basic he completed four relief and rebuilding missions to Fond Parisien, Haiti. His final trip included facilitating a 2-day basic first aid and CPR course for four local villages that had been built in cooperation with a local orphanage and approved by Haiti’s Ministry of Hygiene.
He holds a B.A. in Theater with a focus on stage management from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and an A.S. in Business Management from Montgomery County Community College. Alex enjoyed his previous work in theater, and then as an apprentice with the IBEW 380 Union (now 98N), before losing a fight to bi-lateral carpal tunnel and being unable to return to physically strenuous work after surgery. He currently works as a political consult and is attending college part-time working towards another degree. Alex donates some of his time in our State Representative’s District office in Hatboro as a volunteer coordinator and public notary.
While serving on Council, Alex would like to focus on bringing Hatboro back out of the pandemic with attention to its businesses, workforce, and diversifying population. He also believes we need to work to stay on track with our 2040 Comprehensive Plan and remain committed to identifying various grants and opportunities that allow us to bring new resources into the Borough without putting the burden on its taxpayers. Alex would also like to use his extensive background in theater and production management to bring some new and exciting programming to our parks and recreation that would also help bring in positive attention to our borough and its businesses. If elected, Alex would be the first openly LGBTQ+ member of Hatboro Council as a proud trans man.
