Alex received an honorable discharge from the Army after serving in California as a Korean Linguist, and at the former Willow Grove Joint Naval Air Base as an Intelligence Analyst. As a volunteer EMT-Basic, he completed 4 relief and rebuilding missions in Fond Parisien, Haiti.

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.
