PSAB Past Presidents

   

In 1911, Thomas Chrostwaite, a native of Ashley Borough, Luzerne County, founded the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs (PSAB). He had served for many years as a solicitor in Hanover Borough, York County, where he became fascinated with municipal law and local government history. Chrostwaite served as the President of the Association from that time until his retirement in 1957.

During his years of service he helped the membership flourish. Chrostwaite developed legislative platforms and advanced the education of municipal officials. Today, PSAB represents 956 boroughs. Over the years, PSAB has been represented by leaders throughout the state who have helped the Association remain true to its foundation of legislative advocacy, research, education, and other services.
