Two submit applications for Baumgardner's post
By RICHARD F. BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro
Two people have officially expressed interest in succeeding Washington Township Supervisor Quinter "Buzz" Baumgardner, who died last month, Township Administrator Mike Christopher said Monday.
The process of finding a replacement for Baumgardner, 71, who suffered a fatal heart attack March 20, is under way, Christopher said.
The four surviving supervisors have until April 19 to appoint a temporary replacement. Since Baumgardner was a Republican, his replacement will come from that party, Christopher said. All of the supervisors are Republicans, he said.
A candidates also must have been a township resident for one year.
Christopher said two residents have submitted applications for the post and a third person has made inquiries.
The appointee also must show that he or she can make the four meetings the supervisors hold each month. They include regular sessions on the first and third Mondays and work sessions on the Wednesdays before.
