East Greenville Borough Council Seeking New Member
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer
2017-07-12

Recent resignation is the fourth since September

 

            Jennifer Moran has resigned from the East Greenville Borough Council. Moran submitted her letter of resignation Monday, according to council President Tracey Hunsinger.

            Moran – who did not attend the meeting – cited personal reasons for her resignation in the letter according to Hunsinger, who made the announcement during council's public meeting.

            Moran, who served on the council for nine months, stated that her decision was made with a "heavy heart." In an electronic response Tuesday afternoon, she cited her family as the most important consideration.

            "I believe at this time I was unable to put 100 percent into the position and it wouldn't be right for me to accept any pay from the residents of our town," Moran wrote.

            Moran ran unopposed in May in the Republican Primary for a two-year seat on council. Her name is slated to be on the ballot in November's General election against Democrat Eric Grubb.

            She vowed to remain "as active as I can be with our community … through volunteering."

            Moran did not rule out retuning to council. She has no plans to actively campaign. However, she will leave her name on the ballot and would be willing to serve again if the residents of East Greenville elect her.

            Moran becomes the fourth member to resign since council voted in early September to dissolve the Upper Perk Police Commission. She was appointed in October to replace former President Jim Young.

            In January, Lee Steinert submitted his letter of resignation. Steinert – who has Multiple Sclerosis – cited his worsening illness.  A vocal opponent of council's decision to sever its relationship with the Upper Perk Police Commission, Steinert did not vote on the Sept. 6 motion to sever. He left borough hall during an executive session prior to the vote, which passed 6-0.

            Michael Perlow, Steintert's appointed replacement, lasted 35 days on council. Perlow, who submitted his letter of resignation in early April, cited the acrimonious nature of the municipality's deliberations to leave the Upper Perk Police Commission and start its own police department to step down.

            On May 1, Chrystal Connolly, a certified public accountant, accepted a unanimous appointment to fill the public seat.

            Letters of interest to fill the current vacancy will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Aug. 4, according to Hunsinger.  Interested persons who would like more information can call the borough office at 215-679-5194, ext. 1.

            In her written response Tuesday, Moran expressed hope that "one day our community can be repaired from the damage of political issues surrounding the police."
