Ward 4 Commissioner Appointment Notice

Ward 4 Commissioner Appointment Notice
Posted on 09/16/2019
Commissioner Ferdinand Gonzales has decided to step down from elected office after a long and distinguished role of public service, effective October 1st, 2019. The Board of Commissioners and staff of Lower Moreland Township are heartbroken to lose the input of a man who loves his community and who always brings a smile and warmth to every interaction with all of us and with the people of Ward 4 whom he represents. We wish our friend only the best.

The First Class Township Code of Pennsylvania provides that the Board of Commissioners must appoint a resident of Ward 4 to serve out the remainder of Commissioner Gonzales’ term which is set to conclude in December 2021. The Board has 30 days from the effective date of resignation to fill the position. 

The Board requests letters of interest and/or resumes of residents of Ward 4 who have lived in Lower Moreland for at least 1 year as of October 15, 2019 and who are registered to vote.  Discussions with interested applicants may take place at the next public meetings of the Board of Commissioners which will be at 5:30 pm on September 25, 2019 and 7:00 pm on October 15th, 2019.  A decision will then be made by a public vote of the Board at the October 15, 2019 meeting.  If you are unsure of your Ward, please contact the township, however, if your voting location is at the Pine Road School, you live in Ward 4. If it is anywhere else, you do not live in Ward 4.

Township staff can arrange for any interested resident of Ward 4 to have a pre-interview meeting to better understand the role of Commissioner, what to expect, and to have any questions answered prior to the public meeting where interested residents will meet with the Board of Commissioners.

Please contact Christopher Hoffman, Township Manager, with letters of interest, resumes and any request to meet to discuss the role of Commissioner of Ward 4 in Lower Moreland Township.
