Terry Punt was a lot of things to a lot of people. One thing he wasn't: Above the people. Punt, the longtime public servant who died this week at his home at the age of 60, was a man of the people, who cared about them and wanted to do things for them. He was a local boy who did good -- for himself and the people he served. He dedicated three decades of his life to representing the people of Franklin and Adams counties. From 1979 to 1988, he served as a Pennsylvania state representative of the 90th district and from 1988 to 2008, he represented the 33rd Senatorial District that includes all of Franklin and Adams counties and a small portion of York County.
