Council Resignation - September 25, 2023
To the Castle Shannon Community, I thank you for the many years of support as your Councilman and your Council President. My service to the Borough ended as of noon today, as I have resigned from my elected office. I do so proudly and without regret. My family has given up many days, nights and weekends without me in the last seven years so that I may serve the community. With the arrival of our new baby girl in the coming months, I’m excited to invest that time back at home. I am proud of the progress that is attributable to my time in office - progress that I believe is reflective of the community we should strive to be. With great hope for what Castle Shannon can accomplish, Mark Heckmann
