Candidate – 3rd Ward

Damien R Enderle

Democratic Primary Ballot Number – A42

Damien Enderle grew up in Radnor’s 3rd Ward on Meadowbrook Circle in St. Davids, where he played football and was active in theatre at Radnor High School (class of ’85). With his parents, Damien raised ducks and rabbits on Ithan Creek.

Following graduation from Marquette’s School of Journalism, Damien worked in public relations and marketing in Washington, DC for 20+ years, managing accounts including the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA), Office of the First Lady, and the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA).

Today, Damien is a business development and marketing executive with a proven track record of strengthening brand and customer relationships for Big4 global accounting and consulting firms. Currently, he is a senior marketing manager with a Big4 firm and is a member of the tax marketing and communications leadership team.

Damien, his wife Lisa, and their two daughters returned to Radnor in 2012, and live on Midland Avenue, four short blocks from his childhood home. Both daughters attend Radnor High School and compete in crew and lacrosse.

Damien is a volunteer board member, firefighter and recruiting committee chairman for the Radnor Fire Company of Wayne. He has earned certifications in Fire 1, National Fire ProBoard, Vehicle Rescue Operations, Hazardous Materials Response, and Emergency Vehicle Operations.  Damien operates with Radnor Fire Company crews responding to fire, rescue and emergency situations throughout the Radnor and Tredyffrin-Easton, Pa. areas.

Why Damien is running for the Radnor Board of Commissioners:

  • To help bring sensible, cost-effective solutions – both short and long-term — to the storm water issues facing Radnor Township.
  • Super Wawa! Traffic on Lancaster, Aberdeen and Midland will increase exponentially due to the new, proposed Super Wawa. Noise and light pollution will also be a factor. We need sensible solutions and agreements with Wawa, and Radnor Township needs to hold them accountable.
  • Sewer line replacement in South Wayne. Where does this stand? I have no idea following the initial meetings over one year ago. But this needs to happen, and we don’t need more studies. These lines are over 100 years old. Let’s get moving!

Candidate – 5th Ward

Moira Mulroney

Democratic Primary Ballot Number – A42

Moira Mulroney is the Democratic candidate for the Radnor Township Board of Commissioners Ward 5. She brings to the role a life spent in community service and relationship building. Moira is an advocate for responsible government and civic engagement. She believes those elected to office are have the duty to serve as the eyes, ears and voices of their constituents. She will be focused on issues facing our community, such as: fiscal responsibility and transparency; traffic control and streets management; residential and business growth respectful of Radnor’s community and culture; and funding for our schools and infrastructure. Moira will use her background as a consensus builder to bring civility to public discourse with a priority placed upon bipartisanship.

A recognized nonprofit leader, Moira is the Director of Development & Communications for the Support Center for Child Advocates (Child Advocates), Philadelphia’s legal aid and social services agency serving abused and neglected children. She oversees a staff of six fundraisers and marketing professionals to bolster awareness of the mission and to raise all charitable dollars for the agency’s $4.5 million operating budget. She is often asked to speak on issues of nonprofit management and effective fundraising methods, and in 2016, was recognized with the SmartCEO Magazine’s Executive Management Award. Moira also represents a child client as a Child Advocates Volunteer Attorney.

Moira’s commitment to public service began right out of college working for an Illinois state legislator where she managed constituent services for residents in Chicago’s Southside and learned the power of good advocacy and the importance of building trusting professional relationships. In 1995, she moved to the area to begin her studies at Villanova Law School (’98); she was hired upon graduation by Philadelphia DA Lynne Abraham. For more than 7 years she served as an Assistant District Attorney in the boutique Legislation Unit where she developed state and local legislative strategies to pass sensible crime laws in the Commonwealth, working on issues such as youth violence reduction, gun control, child abuse and invasion of privacy. She also developed the office’s first formal grants program raising $4.5 million annually and advised the District Attorney and staff on crime laws, crime prevention initiatives, and law enforcement policy.

Moira later translated her experience to the nonprofit sector, first as the Director of Grants at the Philadelphia Zoo, then as the Director of Philanthropic Giving at WXPN Public Radio, responsible for raising more than $6 million annually at each institution.

Moira’s connection to Radnor began 30 years ago when her parents moved into the old William Thomas Toll House on Lancaster Avenue in Rosemont and her father became the director of the Graduate Tax LLM Program at Villanova Law School. In 2009, she moved to Bryn Mawr with her husband, her stepson (Radnor ’16) and their rescue dogs. Moira was a Board member at the William Way LGBT Community Center and is currently serving as a Radnor Democratic Committee Representative for Ward 5 Precinct 1.

Why should voters elect you to the School Board?

I believe that I have been true to the commitments I made to the community when I initially ran for office.  At the time, I promised that I would consistently govern in a collegial and nonpartisan manner and work tirelessly to ensure that I fulfilled what was expected of me as a dedicated public servant.  I strive to give informed, reasoned and due consideration to every issue, and I vote with the dedicated outcome of the greatest good for the greatest number of Radnor students and their educational experiences at the forefront of my decision making.  I also try to bring as broad of a perspective as possible to the work at hand by engaging regularly with other school board members, educators, and educational policy experts from across the state.  Educational policy, school law, and curricular trends are just some of the aspects of public schools that are ever changing.  I work hard to keep current with where public education is headed and bring that awareness to the discourse.  I have enjoyed the privilege of serving the community in this capacity and feel that our Team of Ten has made great strides in its governance over the past three years.  I am eager to see several critical long-term initiatives through to fruition and contribute some more to seemingly positive and stable momentum.
