Ward 3- Marlowe Smith

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Marlowe and his wife were searching for an area in South Jersey that would provide an easier commute for both of them, and after speaking to friends and members of their church, saw an opportunity in Delran that offered great schools, reasonably priced homes, and a friendly community. They have called Delran home for almost two decades. When not working as a Senior Legislative Specialist with the PECO Governmental Affairs team, Marlowe can be found mentoring young people and assisting them in discovering their talents and finding their purpose while showing them how to set goals, achieve milestones, and develop a focused plan to propel themselves towards future successes. He serves as a Youth Leader at his church and as a Big Brother with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Read more about Marlowe here:
