David Lozier first ran in 2015 as an outsider. He made the substantial changes needed to improve access to unbiased justice for our citizens. David used his management experience from the Army, his mental health background from college, and his experience as a trial attorney in over 20 counties to reform the Office of the District Attorney. He started by changing the way our prosecutors prepared for their Preliminary Hearings and ensured that they had all of the records and resources they needed beforehand to better evaluate cases with the goal of making realistic pleas earlier in the criminal process. Working with the help of experts, he introduced mental health and drug treatment solutions into our pleas to better address the underlying causes of criminal behavior and reduce recidivism. Together with his team, he removed politics from prosecution and implemented tools to ensure consistent results across similar cases.

David restructured the Anti-Drug Task Force to collaborate with state and federal agencies and rebuilt the Emergency Services Unit (Beaver County SWAT) to meet national standards. Teaming up with law enforcement and school nurses, his office put Narcan in every police car and school—saving hundreds of lives in the process. His office worked with the Drug Abuse Coalition and partners across Beaver County to improve the availability of drug and mental health treatment in the community and in the jail. With better treatment as part of sentences, his team could offer long-term pathways to individuals so they could rebuild their lives—and prevent future crimes. With municipal and law enforcement partners, his office put Prescription Drug Take Back Boxes in over 20 police stations removing over 15,000 pounds of pills from the black market.

COVID-19 shut down the world just three months into Lozier’s second term—-but it did NOT shut down Beaver County or Beaver County courts. While 66 other county courts and DA’s closed their doors, Lozier worked with the President Judge and the County Commissioners to maintain a daily court schedule while keeping officers, victims, witnesses, defendants and staff safe. While other counties were dismissing thousands of criminal cases because their courts were closed or backlogged, Beaver County stayed the course, never closed, and never dismissed a case because of a COVID-19 backlog.

Under Lozier, the D.A. office offered top-notch training for police and attorneys. His team worked to provide police departments with body-worn cameras to improve both officer safety and officer accountability. Lozier sponsored the new License Plate Reading Cameras throughout the county. These tools dramatically accelerated investigations of major crimes and improved the solve rate for every category of crime across the County. He provided the detective bureau with the most advanced forensic technology available so that they could better serve the many police departments they support. In 2022, his office created the Special Victims Unit bringing together highly qualified prosecutors and detectives to improve the investigation and prosecution of domestic violence and sex assault cases. They restructured the prosecution of Juvenile cases to address the increasing number of violent juvenile offenders. He has regularly worked with the Beaver County Humane Society and its Animal Control Officers to secure animal safety and support the rescue of animals from the most horrid conditions.

David worked hard in 2021 and 2022 to secure over $3,000,000 in police technology grants that will come to fruition in 2023 and 2024. These federal earmarks and state grants will bring DNA technology to Beaver County, allow drug samples to be tested in Beaver County the day they are seized, put computers in police cars, and interconnect our police departments through the same shared Police Record Management System. Throughout 2022, Lozier worked hard to lay the groundwork for regionalizing our many smaller police departments into larger, full-time, fully supported departments.

Working with prosecutors, the courts, the Police Chiefs, and behavioral health professionals, Lozier and his team will continue to provide the best “justice” they can, keep Beaver County citizens safe, and ensure that our police officers can go home to their families at the ends of their shifts.

Sandie Egley, a fiscally conservative Republican of Beaver Borough, was elected Beaver County Treasurer in 2019 and has served the last 4 years.  While talking about how much has been accomplished in the last four years, she feels it’s a team effort.  Her team is headed up by two Deputies, Cebran Netherland and Pamela Hupp that take great pride in making the office function efficiently, timely and being helpful to all taxpayers.

Below is a condensed list of accomplishments:

  • Since coming into office, Sandie has focused on using tax dollars to collect the best bank interest rates possible.  In the last four years, Sandie has earned almost 6 million in interest on your tax dollars.
  • Since coming into office, the tax collection rate has been above 95%.  That is the highest it’s been in the last 20 years.
  • Prior to coming into office, the county lacked an online dog license option for new or renewal licenses. In 2020 Sandie expanded services to include an online option, speeding the process and making it easier to obtain a dog license. 
  • Prior to coming into office, all the property owned by the county was mailed a tax bill. They mailed this bill to themselves, a practice that does not promote transparency to the county. The Treasurer’s Office no longer mails tax bills to themselves.
  • Sandie has expanded the ways to pay county taxes by installing credit card terminals at the window in the office and also accepts e-checks as a payment option that only costs $0.20 to pay your tax bill.  That is cheaper than a stamp to mail your payment in.
  • Sandie has reached out to escrow companies to pay thousands of tax bills at one time via ACH. Instead of the escrow company mailing in single payments for each parcel they now send one file that pays 100’s of parcels at one time.
  • Sandie has created a Document Retention Policy and no longer sends paper documents to the Wampum Mines for storage at a cost to taxpayers.  She now scans everything that needs to be saved according to the Retention Law.
  • Sandie constantly reviews the open payment report.  If someone has been sent a check from the county and they have not cashed it, they will try to contact them before they are mandated to submit it as a stale check to the PA Department of Treasury. In some cases, Sandie has personally called School Districts and Borough Managers and re-issued over $100,000 checks they did not cash.
