Joe was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia and moved to Bucks County when he was 12. Him and his wife, Brittany, moved to Bedminster in 2017, where they share a home with their two active daughters, Norah and Maeve.
Joe has dedicated most of his adult life to public service. He currently works for the County of Bucks, in the Tax Claim Bureau, and has been there for 8 years. Joe graduated from Alvernia University in 2011 with a double major in History and Political Science and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in public administration from the University of West Georgia.
When not chasing his two daughters around, Joe enjoys fishing and watching all four Philly sports teams. Joe is currently a Bedminster Committee member, and the Treasurer of the PA 143rd Democratic Assembly.
My wife, Jeanne, and I moved to Bedminster 15 yrs ago where we have a small farm that is currently home to 3 sheep, 5 chickens and a dog. At that time, we acquired Wild Birds Unlimited – a small retail bird food shop, located in Buckingham. In our 12 yrs of management there, we doubled annual revenue. Before that, we both worked at IBM for more than 25 yrs. Born and raised in Illinois, I am 1 of 8 children. My father was a Republican and my mother a Democrat. They loved each other for 50 yrs (when my Dad passed). My family is nearly split down the middle between Republican/Democrat and I LOVE my family. I believe the bonds between family, friends and neighbors are stronger than political party affiliation.
My name is Sean Brennan and I am running for Dublin Borough Council. I have been a resident of Dublin for 17 years. I have 2 boys in Pennridge High School who I coached in basketball, soccer, and baseball at Deep Run throughout the years. I graduated from Kings College in Wilkes-Barre, PA where I also met my wife Nicole. I have worked for Movers Specialty Service in Montgomeryville for 7 years as Customer Accounting Representative. I am also a basketball referee in the local community. Huge fan of the Dublin community and looking forward to getting out there talking to the people to make this place even better.
Joe, his wife Kaitlyn, and their five children are proud to call
Hilltown home. Joe, a Penn State graduate, has over 15 years
of professional experience leading finance and accounting
teams in demanding businesses. He also serves on the board
of directors for a large nonprofit focused on mental health
and homeless services in the Philadelphia region.

Robin was born and raised on a small farm in Perkasie, just outside the borough, graduating from Pennridge High School. She is honored to be on the Pennridge Wall of Fame, recognized for her academic, work and volunteer achievements.
With a Master’s in International Relations and Economics from Johns Hopkins University and a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) from SBS – Swiss Business School, Robin is currently serving as President of the Perkasie Towne Improvement Association, a board member of Blooming Glen Mennonite Church’s Congregational Leadership Board, and just finished serving as a board member for the Pennridge Community Relief Fund.

Outside of volunteering in the community and at church, Robin works as a global technology product manager, leading, developing, and implementing software across multiple departments and organizations in compliance with both local and global regulations. Previously she worked in similar positions for both the federal government and in public sector consulting in Washington DC and Stuttgart, Germany.
Since moving back to Perkasie in 2016, Robin resides on 9th St with her husband, Martin Franke and two cats, Spencer and Bootsie. Keep an eye out for them walking through the streets and parks, enjoying the nature and all the wonderful things Perkasie has to offer. This fall, you can find them at the Farmer’s Market most Saturdays, helping with games at First Fridays, selling raffles at Fall Fest, and pre-selling the annual Perkasie Christmas tree ornament at the last Farmer’s market.
You might recognize Kelly Laustsen as a ringleader of Perkasie First Fridays or the Healthy Kids Running Series. You may shop at her store on 7th Street or attend her book club. But if you attend Perkasie Borough Council meetings, you will know her as the Executive Director of the Perkasie Towne Improvement Association and a member of the Planning Commission. Now she is hoping to earn her own spot on council in the 2023 municipal election.
