Get to Know Your Mayor

Growing up in Orange County, California, Mayor Stephanie Henrick was involved in multiple community service programs including Habitat for Humanity. When she moved to Southeast Pennsylvania a decade ago, there was just something about Pottstown that kept drawing her to the town. Pottstown ten years ago wasn’t what it is today but she saw so much potential downtown and felt something magical about it.

Buying a house in the Borough, she quickly got involved with the Pottstown Rotary Club. Through the Rotary, she got involved in multiple service projects and met like-minded people who were dedicated to helping Pottstown see its potential and become something amazing.

When mayoral elections rolled around, someone joked that she should become the next mayor. “Why not?” She wanted to give back to a town that had already given so much in a short amount of time. So she ran for mayor, won, and the rest is history.
