Heidi Sentivan


I look forward to working WITH the community as a member of Rutledge Borough Council.

I’ve had the pleasure of living in Rutledge for over 17 years with my husband Drew. We feel lucky to be raising our children, Sam and Maisie, in this community.

While being involved with Rutledge Borough government over the last 7 years, I have seen missed opportunities and areas for improvement. We live in a special place, and I want to see our Borough flourish and be ready to meet the challenges of the future. We need new leadership to make this happen. We need to work together in a non-partisan way to do what is best for our Borough.


Endorsement from Dr. Marlaina Kloepfer (R), Rutledge Borough Councilwoman, 2011-2017

“Heidi has long served the borough behind the scenes in her leadership in the Zoning Hearing Board. She has been an informed voice leading the interpretation and enforcement of our current ordinances. Even more importantly, she has ideas for where our ordinances can be updated to better serve the needs of our neighbors as more families are looking to renovate their homes. She is always an opinion that I value and seek out. 

She is an example of the leadership and expertise that already exist within the borough who are not only capable but willing to give their time to serve our community.”
