Board of Commissioners
Radnor 2nd Ward
“Your support of me and our team is invaluable. You have my unwavering commitment that I will serve you and our township with respect, transparency, and dedication.”
-- Sean Waters
Sean Waters is Radnor
Born, Raised, & Educated
My name is Sean Waters, and I am running to represent Radnor’s 2nd Ward on the Board of Commissioners. I am proud to be a third-generation Radnorite and consider myself fortunate to be a lifelong resident of the township. My roots in Radnor date back to the 1940s, when my Irish immigrant grandparents settled in the "Little Chicago" neighborhood of Wayne. I am a product of the Radnor school system, graduating from Radnor High School in 1998. Using the tools and values that Radnor instilled in me, I went on to earn a degree from Penn State, where I also played on the ice hockey team, winning three national championships.
Professionally, I have 18 years’ experience in the investment banking industry and currently work for a major financial services company, responsible for direct risk management oversight of teams in seven locations across four continents. Additionally, I am the owner of a grassroots local real estate business with investment properties, all of which are in Wayne. I am also the former owner of a landscaping business, which, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, serviced yards throughout the township, some still owned by those very same residents today.
My sister and I were collectively raised by my hardworking parents and the Radnor community. This upbringing taught me the intrinsic values of hard work, dedication, leadership, and teamwork. I am now thrilled to have the opportunity to humbly serve the same community which has given so much to my family and me over the past three generations. It is this debt of gratitude to those who paved the way which drives me to ensure that the same opportunities and trademark standard of excellence remain ingrained in Radnor for current residents and generations to follow.
As Commissioner, by utilizing an approach steeped in homegrown leadership and true community-based teamwork, I will set a course to collaboratively guide the 2nd Ward and Radnor on a path that is fiscally responsible, transparent, strategic, forward thinking, and supportive of local small businesses. Furthermore, I will strive to set policies that ensure Radnor retains the core values that have made it one of the most coveted townships in the country in which to live, work, grow, and prosper.
My wife, Juliana, and I are proud parents to two daughters: Annalise (4), who will attend Radnor Elementary in the fall; and Taryn (1). In our spare time, we are often crisscrossing the township, shuttling our daughters to various activities, sports, and lessons. When I can catch a break in the action, I can be found working on projects in our yard and occasionally still lingering around local hockey rinks playing in adult leagues, with equally washed-up ex-college players.
I respectfully ask for your support as I set out to provide “Grassroots Leadership for One Radnor.”

Gearing Up for Election Day: Nov. 2, 2021
Friday, July 23, 2021
The past five months have been a tremendously rewarding experience for me as I have been able to connect with neighbors in the 2nd Ward and across the Township. I have enjoyed listening to their stories, their unique journeys, what we collectively do well in the Township, and most importantly where critical improvement and change may be needed. But the reality is that my team and I have only scratched the surface of our community based approach.
In the time left until election day on November 2, we will be making every effort to continue to establish a leadership presence while always listening to what matters to you most. Whether it is having conversations regarding the Fenimore Woods Project, talking about how to reduce congestion and limit development along King of Prussia Road, pinpointing solutions to mitigate the habitual bridge strikes at Radnor Train Station, or understanding the specific ways stormwater impacts each of our neighborhoods, I assure you that I represent your voice and will fight to preserve what is great about our Township, while driving critical change where it is needed.
As the summer sets in, many of us are taking some well deserved time to relax, reconnect with friends, and spend time with family. While we do this, it's also important to take a moment to reflect on the fact that our Township, the place we proudly call home, has found itself at a critical crossroads. We now have a choice. Do we continue on this precarious path where people's voices are ignored, allowing divisiveness to manifest, or do we, as community leaders, get back to the grassroots in our neighborhood, listen to what matters most, and then humbly represent our constituents with determination and a fierce sense of purpose and duty? I cordially invite you to join me on an unwavering path for the later choice, for One United Radnor.
As always, please let me know if you would like to volunteer as part of our campaign mission. We are immensely appreciative of any and all partnerships, whether it is going door to door, helping distribute signs, hosting events, or just ensuring that the positive word of mouth continues to flow throughout the 2nd Ward and throughout the Township.
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't take this opportunity to thank the stellar team here in the 2nd Ward. I am impressed everyday with your passion, talent, and determination and it's a privilege to be on this journey with you as we set out to provide "Grassroots Leadership for One Radnor."
