Scott Brown is running for re-election as Ward 1 Hatfield Township Commissioner. Brown is a retired teacher and is running for the same reason he became a union leader, to make a difference. He was the first Democrat elected in his town and as a commissioner; he led the effort that made Hatfield the only municipality in Montgomery County that has same-sex benefits for public employees. While a teacher he led a teachers strike that made his local the only one in Pennsylvania with a class size provision in its collective bargaining agreement.
