Steve Korbel Announces Candidacy for the Ross Township Board of Commissioners Ward 2. ROSS TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania (January 31, 2013) – Today, Steve Korbel, 36, an attorney and Ward 2 community advocate, announced his candidacy for the Ross Township Board of Commissioners, Ward 2. Korbel said, “With the surprising announcement that Commissioner Chris Eyster would not seek re-election, many friends, colleagues and residents of Ward 2 and the Township reached out to me to encourage me to seek this office. After much contemplation, and with the support of my family and my employer, I have decided to declare my intention to seek the office of Township Commissioner in Ward 2.” Korbel is a Shareholder at the Pittsburgh law firm of Babst Calland where he practices labor, employment and municipal law. Korbel is also the Chairperson of the firm’s Public Sector Services Group. During his legal career, Korbel has served as solicitor and special labor counsel to several townships, boroughs and counties in Western Pennsylvania. In addition, Korbel has served his neighborhood, Ross Township and the North Hills School District in various volunteer capacities. Korbel served his neighborhood as a member of the Board of Directors and eventually as President of the White Oak Heights Civic Association from 2008-2012. Korbel is also a Township-appointed member of the joint committee of appointed representatives from Ross Township, West View Borough and the North Hills School District to address community and economic development issues facing the North Hills. With the School District, Korbel was the Chairperson of the District’s Act 1 Tax Study Commission in 2006 and has regularly served on District’s Public Budget Committee since 2005. Korbel believes that the skills he has acquired through his legal practice and his public and volunteer service will serve the residents of Ward 2 and the Township well. Korbel stated that, “My candidacy is a result of my desire to work for the residents of Ward 2 and the Township to ensure that Ross Township is well positioned for success today and in the future.” Korbel resides in the Berkeley Hills neighborhood of Ward 2 with his wife Sabrina and his daughters Addison (5) and Madeleine (4). Ross Township Ward 2 is located in the Northeast corner of the Township and is essentially the area bound by McKnight Road North, Seibert Road, Thompson Run Road (including the area between Thompson Run Road and the municipal boundary with Shaler Township) and Johanna Drive and Parkview Road.
