By Richard Gaw
Chester County Commissioner Michelle Kichline will step into the role of co-chair of the VISTA 2025 Executive Alliance, serving as the public sector chair alongside private sector chair Tom Fillippo. Kichline is filling the shoes left vacant by former County Commissioner and now U.S. Congressman Ryan Costello.
Commissioner Kichline’s experience is relevant to many of the issues that are the focus of VISTA 2025. In addition to her role as county commissioner, she serves as a commissioner and chair of strategic planning for the Delaware River Port Authority, and is a board member of the Transportation Management Association of Chester County as well as the Paoli Transit Task Force.
The Commissioner is an attorney with experience representing municipalities and school districts, and her former public office experience includes serving as chair of the Tredyffrin Township Zoning Hearing Board and the Tredyffrin Township Board of Supervisors, during which time she spearheaded the formation of the Business Development Advisory Committee.
"I am excited about the VISTA 2025 focus on a balance of progress and preservation and I am impressed with the quality of work that has been completed on the strategy so far," she said. "VISTA 2025 is an excellent platform that will guide our actions in support of Chester County’s economy for years to come, and I look forward to working with my fellow co-chair and the entire Executive Alliance team."
