FRANK AGOVINO

Endorsed by Delaware County GOP

Frank was born and raised in the South West section of Philadelphia to John and Rose Agovino, Italian immigrants who traveled to the United States in the 1950’s in pursuit of the American dream. They settled in Philadelphia and opened a small neighborhood meat business. It was here that Frank learned the value of hard work, nurtured his small business spirit, and developed his sense of service and connection to a community.

Throughout his life Frank nurtured a passion for small business, entrepreneurship, and public service. Over 25 years ago he embarked on his first venture in a Lansdowne farmer’s market with two people. Today his business employs over fifty people with locations in Media, Springfield, and Newtown Square. Frank’s wife, also a small business owner, has operated a busy salon in Newtown Square for 12 years.

As Frank’s businesses and family grew, he quickly recognized the importance of giving back to and getting involved in his Delaware County community. Frank calls it an honor of his life to have served his community on the Springfield School Board for the past 14 years. During his time on the Board, Frank has served as President twice, Vice President, and now Treasurer and Finance Chairman, assisting in the oversight of a $70 million dollar budget. Frank was also closely involved with the planning, financing, and development of the new Springfield High School, a $130 Million dollar project. During his time on the Board, the District has earned many accolades and helped to keep the Springfield and Morton communities desirable places to live, to work, and to raise a family.

Twelve years ago, Frank was hired as Director of the Small Business Center at Delaware County Community College. Today Frank is the Director of the Corporate College at Delaware County Community College in the Workforce Development and Community Education Division and works closely with companies large and small throughout Delaware and Chester Counties.

Frank has served on multiple boards through the years including the New Avenue Foundation which works closely with disabled individuals, the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, the Delaware County Intermediate Unit, the Delaware County Baseball League, the Eastern Delaware County YMCA, and the Manufacturers Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties.

Frank is a West Catholic High School and Saint Joseph’s University (B.S. Marketing) graduate. He later received an M.S. in Organizational Leadership from Cabrini University.

Frank, along with his wife Laura (Marple Newtown High School), daughter Alexa (Springfield High School 2020), and puppy Ginger live in Springfield Township.

“As a founder of a small business that employs over 50 amazing people, I know the challenges that thousands of Delaware County small businesses face every day. I’ll work tirelessly to support the women and men who provide our economic engine.”

JOE LOMBARDO

Clifton Heights Mayor & Entrepreneur

Joe Lombardo is a true son of Delaware County. Born and raised in Clifton Heights by Georgia and Joseph Lombardo, Sr., Joe today not only lives in Clifton Heights, in 2017 he was elected the town’s mayor – an office he holds to this day.

But Joe’s decision to enter county politics was never a goal. It was the result of his decades-long commitment to Delaware County as a local business owner and entrepreneur. Beginning as an apprentice in the late 1980s, Joe learned the craft of mortuary science, worked his way up at the Williams Funeral Home, and eventually purchased the business in 2001.

Joe takes pride in how his company has successfully worked to accommodate the community’s needs and consistently strove to exceed them. Within the trade, his team has implemented diverse and progressive offerings such as an animal crematory, the only business of its kind in the greater Philadelphia region.

His clients will tell you without prompting that Joe cares about people. And it shows. Joe’s hard work and commitment to community in recent years allowed him to expand his business to Springfield with the launch of Kovacs Lombardo Funeral Home.

Joe’s decision to run for Mayor of Clifton Heights was always predicated upon the premise that he would run as long as he could do good and he could make Delaware County a better place to live, to work, and to raise a family. So far, he has certainly succeeded. In his time as Clifton Heights Mayor Joe has overseen the completion of the new municipal complex in the borough, revamped the administrative staff (including the licenses, inspections, and redevelopment department), and added new planning and zoning boards. Additionally, Joe has spearheaded over $25 million in redevelopment projects in the borough and brokered the first Opportunity Zone (RACP project) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Joe is a graduate of Upper Darby High School and Mercer County College in Trenton, NJ. He has two teenage daughters of whom he is very proud and resides in Clifton Heights with his fiancé, Gina Urban, also born and raised in Clifton Heights.
