Rev. Dr. Gordon Barrows – Mayor of New Bethlehem PA
To the great people of New Bethlehem:
After prayer and deep reflection, I wish to formally announce my intent to run for reelection for Mayor of New Bethlehem. My desire to continue serving as mayor is deeply rooted in my life-long commitment to the New Bethlehem area and Redbank Valley community.
I grew up here, graduated from Redbank Valley High School and worked at Tom’s Riverside for nearly a decade while earning several of my college degrees at Clarion University. I hold a Ph.D. equivalent doctorate of business degree in technology (DBA) as well as I am currently pursuing a second Ph.D. equivalent doctorate of education degree in theology (Ed.D) from Liberty University to help local businesses, churches, and community organizations start, grow, and prosper.
I founded TechReady Professionals, a local computer technology and Internet-marketing firm which employs a ten-member team and has been in operation since 2010. My experience in operating my own business, has given me the expertise needed to promote our community, and is showcased by hyper-local community website RedbankValley.org.
As Mayor, I will continue to represent the people of New Bethlehem Borough by helping to facilitate strategic partnerships, educate the community on the benefits of economic development, advocate for local and regional competitive economic vitality, as well as help to promote civic leadership and community engagement.
I would be honored to have the privilege of continuing to serve the people of New Bethlehem, to support business, community and personal growth within the borough, while maintaining the small-town appeal and family-friendly environment that makes New Bethlehem such great place to work, live and raise a family.
God Bless the New Bethlehem Area and Redbank Valley Community.
