Eastern Pennsylvania Alliance for Clean Transportation Coalition
Clean Cities Coordinator
Tony Bandiero has a diverse background, from marketing manager with a high-tech micro-electronic manufacturer to his alternative fuels business development management for a petroleum construction company. His interest in the Clean Cities program was sparked in Long Island, NY (GLICC) where his former company was headquartered. Through his committee work with GLICC he expanded his interest for alternative fuels and petroleum reduction technologies to both Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey where he currently resides.
Bandiero's involvement with the Greater Philadelphia Clean Cities (GPCC), now known as the Eastern Pennsylvania Alliance for Clean Transportation (EP-ACT) coalition happened a little by chance and a little by perseverance. Trying to gain support for an E-85 conversion vehicle that his employer was seeking to build, he first attended a GPCC meeting. He was later nominated and elected to the Board of Directors, on which he served for over 1-1/2 years.
In 2009, the Board unanimously elected him to the position of Director of the GPCC coalition where he has managed projects valued at over $17 million.
In 2013, Bandiero spearheaded the expansion of the coalition from 5 counties in southeastern PA to include 29 additional counties of eastern and central Pennsylvania. This was approved by the Department of Energy during a re-designation process. To reflect the expanded territory, the coalition changed its name from GPCC to EP-ACT.
