A resident of West Mifflin, Bob Macey – the District 9 Representative for Allegheny County Council – has continually integrated himself into the network of various public service and nonprofit organizations in the Mon Valley area, including the Duquesne / West Mifflin Rotary, the Regional Chamber Alliance Foundation and the West Mifflin Community Foundation, serving as a board member for all these organizations. For relentlessly serving his community, Bob was a recipient of the Mon Valley Initiative Jo DeBolt “Volunteer of the Year” award and was recognized for his volunteer activities by the Regional Business Alliance. As Director of Business Development and Community Relations for Century Heritage Federal Credit Union, Bob has been uniquely exposed to the problems touching citizens of former mill communities, and, relating to their problems, he has dedicated his time to alleviating these issues.
Councilman Macey’s work to better his community started at an early age. After graduating high school in the late 1960s, he began a career in the United States Steel Works mill in Duquesne, where he remained for nearly 15 years. As local mills closed in the early 1980s, he worked through his union to help distribute food packages and establish with various social service and government organizations vocational retraining and community revitalization projects to relieve the plight of area families who relied on the mills for a living.
After the closing of the Duquesne mill, Bob attended classes at Pennsylvania State University and the Community College of Allegheny County. He currently holds an undergraduate degree in business management and is a Certified Marketing Executive.
Prior to joining Allegheny County Council, Bob was a past Board Member of the Allegheny County Airport Authority. Today, he serves as Council’s liaison to the authority. In addition to his regular Council duties, he serves his appointment to the Technical Advisory Committee for the Allegheny County Airport 20-Year Master Plan and also on the Regional Trail Corporation Board of Directors.
Bob is a licensed commercial pilot, and his volunteer efforts to assist those who wish to better themselves and their communities continue today.
