I think it was wise to pick someone who has experience. I read that Joe Klunk applied and I shuddered at the though. His time has passed (thankfully)

Back To The Future! Its obvious to me "That its business as usual" in Penn Twp. Same old faces, same old ideas. If there were eight candidates, seven could have brought new, fresh action to Twp government. But they choose someone who has been part of everything thats wrong. What we get is "the same old". Figures.

Ask yourself a question, if where you work they removed everyone with experience and replaced with people of no experience or limited what would it be like. I think what the presen t board realizes is they have new ideas which is good but they need someone with years of experience in local government to help them along. If both veterans and new personnel keep open minds they will succeed. However to some Pope Paul could get appointed an they would not be happy.

Wendell, Why don't you let some young and smart people lead the township? Same old bullshit, just a different day. Don't stumble, Wendell, as you did when you TRIED to officate local high school sports.
Retire and relax, Wendell, the township don't need you, it needs YOUNG, INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP.

This current board is just as advertised. No backbone and no leadership qualities. They went with the safe pick and took a guy that won't rock the boat. A friend was present at these "interviews" and they were impressed by the quality of candidates that stepped forward. For a few brief minutes they thought maybe we will get some real change. Not to be!

Congratulations Wendell Felix

Thank you for your interest in serving Penn.

Maybe now the board can revisit the budget and see if you can suck it in a little bit.

None of this suprises me. Penn never had an idea and this selection just confirms all my belief, it still doesn't. It is and always was ran by a bunch of know nothing wanabe polititions. It never had a good group running the township and it hasn't changed now!!

Didn't the voters of Penn Township vote Mr. Felix out office once before?! So much for listening to the voice of the voters. Instead, the voice has be squelched! Thanks Penn Township!
