MACo Welcomes New Policy Team Member, Dominic Butchko

The MACo Staff gladly welcomes Dominic Butchko, who joins the policy team as Associate Director, and will be contributing at the upcoming Summer Conference.

Dominic Butchko joins MACo with credentials from both county and municipal government, and track record of achievement at both levels.

“Mr. Butchko has been working within county government and has seen how we can succeed, but also has hands-on experience as a municipal official,” said Executive Director Michael Sanderson. “He’ll draw on this to deliver right away for MACo, our member counties, and all the services they provide back home.”

Mr. Butchko comes from his position as a senior aide to Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, where he helped coordinate efforts with the County Council, and oversaw innovations with both internal programs and external relationships. Prior to his county role, Mr. Butchko served for over three years as a Councilmember in Forty Fort, Pennsylvania, a borough in Luzerne County adjacent to the city of Wilkes-Barre. As a Councilmember, he built a coalition of municipal officials in a major multi-jurisdiction agreement on animal control, and recruited the town’s first Public Works Director. He has prior experience with political campaigns and with not-for-profit organizations.

Mr. Butchko has a degree in political science from Wilkes University, and is working toward completion of a master of arts degree in public management from Johns Hopkins University.
