Perry Hamilton, Secretary

Perry Hamilton

  • Has lived in Wynnewood 36 years
  • Member of WCA for 27 years
  • Causes: Land Use. “Thought it seems mundane, maintaining the railroad station is very important.  It is the architectural focus of our neighborhood.  Our neighborhood is unique in that there are practically no “tear downs and rebuilds”.  Loosing this original railroad station would be a blow to that aspect of living here.”
  • “Because Wynnewood was built with high quality and has remained exceptionally well preserved, it is vulnerable to business that see opportunity to make a fast, easy buck at the expense of this neighborhood’s charm. Though I am ‘pro business’, I resist attempts by businesses to make a fast, easy buck at the expense of the unique charm of our neighborhood”

Matt Rieke, Assistant Secretary

Matt Rieke

  • Has lived in Wynnewood 15 years
  • Member of WCA for 15 years

  • “My family has been fortunate to live in Wynnewood for the past seven years. I have always enjoyed volunteering whenever possible. In the case of the WCA, I hoped my voice and experience would have the power to accomplish some small change and improvement in Lower Merion Township. While I’m all about modernization, this community is being greatly affected by large commercial projects. I’d really like our towns to remain relatively unspoiled for generations to come. I am currently chairing the Wynnewood Station garden and get great joy from watching the commuters smile at our plantings on their way to work.”

  • Our family really loves living in Wynnewood. As a Realtor at Keller Williams it is a real joy to introduce newcomers to Wynnewood and describe why it’s such a great place to live and raise a family.  Maintaining the character and charm of the area while enabling change is one of the key challenges facing all the residents of Lower Merion and the reason I volunteer at the at our  Civic Association.
