Whitemarsh Township to Hold Special Election

COURTHOUSE - Whitemarsh voters will have one extra office to fill in the Nov. 4 election.
A special election will be added to the ballot to fill a vacancy on the board of supervisors that was created on July 10 when Republican Supervisor Jean K. McLenigan resigned.

The supervisors tapped Democrat Robert Hart, a lawyer from Lafayette Hill, to serve as interim supervisor until the vacancy is filled by the special election.

Democrats have also nominated Hart as their candidate in the special election to serve out McLenigan's term, which expires in January 2010.

Republicans have nominated Dr. Richard Cutler, a dentist, as their candidate to fill McLenigan's unexpired term.

In paperwork filed with the county election board, Republicans note that Cutler was an unsuccessful candidate last year for supervisor but has continued his involvement in the township since that time and has attended most supervisor meetings.

Cutler did apply to serve on the township's planning commission and for the interim supervisor appointment but was unsuccessful in both attempts in the Democratically-controlled township.

The township was Republican until the election when Christian Marrone and Joe Meo were in charge. Then the R's lost every race...and Meo is still in the picture.
