Judi Reiss is a 42-year resident of Bucks County – living in Lower Makefield Township with her husband Gary. Her grown children all live in the community. In 2015, Judi was elected for a four-year term on the Lower Makefield Township Supervisors.

Judi is a retired marketing manager and former teacher. She taught for over 10 years in the Trenton Public School system and worked for Stark & Stark in Princeton, NJ. Judi says she learned the value of community when she lost her son, Joshua, at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001: “Many people in the Lower Makefield community were there to support me and my family. This is my chance to give back to those who helped me.” Judi has a master’s degree in education and a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Georgia.
