A Little Bird in Newtown Sez...

The word out of Newtown Square is that at tonight's supervisors meeting Supervisor George Wood, who is facing a theft of service charge over a mere $21 charge to the township's FedEx account, is going to resign. But not before nominating the recent winner of the GOP primary, Ed Partridge, to take the seat of the late Bob Slawter.

If that happens, two seats will be up for grabs this fall. Where that leaves lame-duck Linda Houldin and her campaign manager Jim Stefanides, who'd been angling for the seat, is uncertain.

But under the circumstances it would be a smart and classy thing for Wood to do.

We'll see. Could be a heck of a meeting.

UPDATE: Well, it looks like I was half right. Wood nominated Partridge and he was voted onto the board. But Wood didn't resign his position. From what I'm told he wants the DAs office to drop the puny theft charge against him and then he'll resign but not before.

There is also talk about a township audit turning up more in the way of missing funds that could lead to more charges being filed against township employees and officials. Whatever happens it's not looking like townshp manager Jim Sheldrake or solicitor Bruce Irvine will survive under the new administration.

Stay tuned.

It's funny how Gwenn is the target for what is clearly Linda's FedEx mailings. Linda is the one with the "jewelry buisness", even a bad detective could figure that out. Gwenn just wanted to keep her job so she mailed the stuff under her name instead of Linda doing it. Gee whiz I wonder why Wood and Houldin are trying to trivialize the matter, they're afraid the truth will get out.. Go get em' Gil!!
