How is she still on council after she was charged for writing bad checks. Isn't that the same as stealing?

I can't understand why either. I've been to a few meetings & when she doesn't get her way, she throws a temper tantrum. If there are criminal charges against her, she should resign. Or did her buddies in the P.D. make the charges disappear.

She is one of the best council members we have had on Derry Council in a long time. She gets things done. Before you start throwing stones at her look at yourself.

She is one of the better ones on council. Just look at the others!

So, the fact that she's a thief and a liar doesn't bother you?

I would say her past troubles with the law are much worse than a littering fine the Pres. recieved.

I agree. The fact that her trouble with the law occured during her time as a council member is very disturbing. The check thing happened in 2010 while she held her seat on council. What really puzzles me is why Susan Bortz overlooked the matter. If she was such a good mayor, she should have asked for Melville's resignation. Then she has the nerve to call for the resignation of the other members. Pure B.S. if you ask me!

. What exactly has she done? Besides make sure she gets her name in the paper by arguing with the rest of council.

Removing Melville from council was given to the Boro attorney in 2010. There is nothing in PA Law that prohibits her from holding her seat. She cannot be removed by council she has to be voted off.

Congratulations on becoming Council President. Now we have someone holding the titale that will get things done for a change. Now I'm hoping the ex Council President and Chuck D resign the offices they hold, both of them have done nothing since they took office. About the only thing Chuck has done is attend meetings via speaker phone.

or how about "I'm not a politician" or "i'm busy" (Byers Sr.) Or one that wasn't even registered to vote (Morton) then again i do enjoy the circus every month, great entertainment.

It's politics...it's as simple as that. They might as well have her write out all the checks for the Boro, while they are at it.

How can someone charged with writing bad checks be allowed to write checks for the borough? Who's going to sign the public works and police payroll checks? I don't think she can be trusted with the taxpayers money. What's to stop her from paying her bills with borough funds?
