McCandless high school juniors and seniors – Are you a leader? Do you want to learn how things get done in your community and share the perspective of young adults? This is your opportunity!

The Town of McCandless is seeking applicants to serve as its 2022-2023 Junior Councilperson.

Forget D.C. and Harrisburg – your local government is the best place to get involved and work on real change.

In addition, you can select a focus area, work collaboratively with the Town on projects, assist town staff with information gathering and social media, foster greater involvement in government by students and even collaborate with Junior Councilmembers from other local municipalities.

Candidates must be Town of McCandless residents who are incoming high school juniors or seniors. The Junior Councilperson will serve a term coinciding largely with the school year (September/October through June).

To apply, fill out this application (fillable PDF) and e-mail it to or mail/hand-deliver it to Town of McCandless, 9955 Grubbs Road, Wexford, PA 15090. Qualified applicants will be interviewed by Town Council. The deadline to apply is Thursday, May 26 at 5 p.m.
