After serving on Patton Township's Sign Review Board (no sign of it now) and Planning Commission (still going strong), Elliot was elected Township Supervisor for the first time in 1980. Except for a couple of years at the turn of the century, he has been a Supervisor ever since (including sever terms as Chair).
Elliot has always believed one of the most important jobs at this level of government is to listen to the citizens. The Township is a Place for All, and anyone can play a role.
Elliot grew up within the city of Philadelphia and went to the same junior high as his wife did at the same time, though they did not meet until they were at Penn State University. They have two adult children and three grandchildren.
Over a 53-year career at AccuWeather, Elliot delivered multiple millions of broadcasts while serving as an executive and Board Member at the company. In his current role with the Township, he is honored to work with four other excellent Supervisors at a Township with a great staff and management. The Police Department has reached one of the highest levels of accreditation possible.
As is the case with others at his advanced age, his favorite music genre is electric dance music.
