Glade Twp. supervisor Scully resigns

Wanted: Glade Township resident to take on local government leadership position.

Requirements (preferred): Advanced problem-solving skills, adaptability, ability to grasp changing legislative issues, positive work ethic, desire to improve community.

Compensation: Non-monetary rewards of service to others.

On Tuesday, the Glade Township Supervisors held a special meeting to accept the resignation of Supervisor Vice Chairman Joe Scully.

Scully is departing after serving two years of his current term after serving a total of eight years as a supervisor.

While he declined to cite the reason for his departure, Scully said on Thursday, “It’s not a health reason. I just resigned.”

In addition to his role as a supervisor, Scully was a regular representative at meetings of the Warren County Intergovernmental Cooperative (COG), worked with the county’s fire services committee and served with the Allegheny Resource Advisory Committee (RAC). He is also a regular attendee of meetings of the Warren County Commissioners.

“I’ve been on more committees than I can count,” he recalled. “I enjoyed working with the COG and fires services and the RAC, which were my main volunteer programs besides the township. I served the community well, I thought. I enjoyed serving the community and I hope they enjoyed having me.”

Scully expressed optimism towards whoever eventually fills the position.

“I’m sure whoever replaces me will put forth the same effort,” he said. “I enjoyed serving the people of Glade Township.”

The township is currently accepting letters of interest and resumes from residents interested in filling the vacancy left by Scully for the remaining approximately four years of his six-year term. Resumes must be accompanied by a letter of interest.

The vacancy will be filled by appointment.

The township is also accepting applications to fill a vacancy on the Glade Township Municipal Authority.

Resumes and letters of interest for both positions must be received by Aug. 5.
