Supervisor Bill Holmes Announces Resignation

At the March 14th Supervisor's meeting, Bill Holmes announced that he intends to resign from the Board, after 10 years of dedicated service to our community. He expects that his last day in office will be the June 13th Board meeting but, as he has not yet submitted a formal letter of resignation, that is still subject to change. However, assuming that date, the following is how his successor will be identified, in accordance with PA State law governing Second Class townships. That law specifies that the remaining Supervisors appoint a person to fill the open position until a new Supervisor can be elected in the next municipal election which will take place in November 2019.


1. The township will accept applications for Supervisor. An application can be obtained by clicking here. Applications should be returned to the Township Manager, John Nagel, either by mail to 209 Conestoga Road, Frazer, PA 19355 or to his email address: jnagel@eastwhiteland.org no later than April 30th.


2. All applications will be reviewed by township staff who will then forward all applications to Supervisors Sue Drummond and Scott Lambert for their review.


3. Applicants will be jointly interviewed by Sue and Scott at a public meeting to be held expressly for that purpose in May (exact date TBD).


4. Bill Holmes will submit a letter of resignation prior to or at the June 13th Supervisor's meeting. His resignation will be accepted by the Board at that meeting.


5. Bill Holmes will participate in the June 13th Supervisors meeting, at which Sue and Scott will vote for a new Supervisor to replace him. If the vote is split, the Vacancy Board will convene within 15 days to break the tie. Either way, the new Supervisor will be sworn in before or at the July 11th meeting. Their term will run through December 31, 2019.
