Jennings, of Lower Makefield Township, is an attorney with FisherBroyles LLP.
In his four decades of practice Tom has represented national and local business entities and has served as lead project counsel for major business operations on multi-billion dollar transactions.
“Bob and I are thrilled to have someone with Tom’s esteemed background and qualifications leading our transition team,” Diane said. “Tom is widely known throughout Bucks County for his work related to facility redevelopment particularly in the environmental sector.”
In addition to his extensive law work, Tom has been recognized for his service on numerous Bucks County and regional nonprofit boards, including Citizen Diplomacy International where he chaired a successful transition.
“I am pleased to lead this historic effort and thank Diane and Bob for their support,” Tom said.
Along with Jennings, three other attorneys were chosen to serve on the transition executive committee: Michael P. Clarke, managing partner of Rudolph Clarke LLC; Kyong Ha Growney, partner of Curtin & Heefner LLP; and tax attorney Gregory C. McCarthy. Collectively this group has experience spanning decades in law and business.
The transition team intends to examine government functions over the next several months and report back to the Commissioners.
“We look forward to hearing from Bucks County residents as we analyze aspects of county government,” Jennings said.
Bob Harvie, who has served as Chairman of the Falls Township Board of Supervisors for more than a decade, will be sworn in as Commissioner at the reorganization meeting on January 6th.
State Rep. Gene DiGirolamo will fill the third seat.
