Larkin was first elected Ward 1 Commissioner in a May 2018 special election and was elected Vice President of the Board of Commissioners last January. He’ll serve alongside Commissioner Sean Farhy, who was also re-elected, as well as newly elected Damien Enderle and Moira Mulroney.
“We in the Radnor Democrats are thrilled with tonight’s results,” George Badey, the Radnor Democratic chairman, told the Delaware County Times. “We look forward to great progress for our community.”
“Most of the work we do as a township is nonpartisan. My Republican colleagues are not ideologically opposed to well-paved roads, and they don’t cheer when our homes flood,” says Larkin. “Nevertheless, I do believe that maintaining a Democratic majority is important for advancing solutions to issues including our infrastructure and stormwater problems.”
Larkin is chair of Gawthrop Greenwood’s Litigation Department, where he focuses his practice on municipal and corporate litigation. He has served on the board of directors of the United Way of Chester County, and is a former chair of the American Red Cross Leadership Board.
Prior to joining Gawthrop Greenwood, Larkin was an appellate litigator in the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, where he appeared regularly before the Pennsylvania Superior Court, and periodically handled appeals to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. He continues his appellate practice today, civilly, before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and Pennsylvania’s Superior and Commonwealth Courts.
Larkin’s published works have appeared in law journals at the Georgetown University School of Law, Vanderbilt Law School, the University of Florida Law School and the American Journal of Trial Advocacy, as well as in the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Bar Quarterly and At Issue publications.
Larkin is an alumnus of Oberlin College, where he graduated with honors. While at Villanova Law School, he received the Pennsylvania Environmental Law Forum scholarship and was a Dean’s Merit Scholar. He has also received the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers’ Association’s James J. Mandarino Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy. He was named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers Magazine, and a “Top Lawyer” by Main Line Today.
