Michael Link Commissioner

Michael Link

Dear First Ward Resident and Neighbor,

My name is Michael Link

I am presently your First Ward Commissioner.

I am proud to be a lifelong resident of Aston Township, having lived in the Rockdale section for the past 53 years. My wife Celeste and I have made our home in the same neighborhood where I was raised as a youngster, across the street on Convent Road.

Many of the folks in Rockdale know me because they are also lifelong residents of the area. For those First Ward residents that don’t know me, I would like to tell you a little about myself. After graduating from Sun Valley High School, I enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving our country for 14 years. I am a decorated combat veteran of the Gulf War, having served in Desert Storm and attained the rank of Sergeant E5. After my military career, I graduated from the Delaware County Community College Municipal Police Academy and then served Aston Township as Police Officer for nine years.

My community involvement includes active membership in American Legion Post #926 and Bonaventure-Clark Post 6613 VFW as Past Historian and Trustee respectively, and also a member of St. Francis de Sales Parish. My experience serving on the Aston Township Zoning Hearing Board and involvement with the Aston Vision Plan and Comprehensive Plan Committees has influenced my decision to seek the First Ward Commissioner position.

Aston Township is already a great place to live. As you representative, I will work with the other members of the Board of Commissioners to help make Aston, as well as, the First Ward an even greater place to live. I will represent all the people in the Second Ward, children, adults and seniors alike by promoting “quality of life” values. Likewise, I will address issues of concern to you, our community and the First Ward in particular through accessibility and open lines of communication. Finally, I will represent your best interest by being fiscally responsible with spending and ensuring that Township services are provided in the most cost-effective manner.
