FedEx Follies Continue in Newtown Square

After a month of embarassing shilly shallying in Newtown Square, it was announced last night that Gwen Toyzer, the FedEx account abusing secretary, would be suspended from her job for 20 days without pay.

I was not there, but I am told the disciplining was announced by Commissioner George Wood who read a prepared statement that declared the whole matter "political," announced the punishment and then gaveled the meeting to a close.

Then all hell broke loose.

An objection was raised by Commissioner Joe Catania that the matter had to be voted on by the whole board. But township solicitor Bruce Irvine advised that it didn't. He said Township Manager Jim Sheldrake had the power to unilaterally discipline the employee. Why it took him so long to do so is another question.

More later.
