Township Thanks McGroarty For Years Of Service

WITH THANKS FOR HIS SERVICE – Lower Pottsgrove resident Michael McGroarty, right, ended another chapter last month in his history of public service to the township, leaving after four years as a member of the Board of Commissioners. At the board’s Dec. 19 (2013) close-out session, during which McGroarty received an award from board President Jonathan Spadt, colleague James Kaiser praised McGroarty as a man who “speaks the truth and speaks his mind, which is a big part of being a commissioner.” McGroarty has volunteered and been selected for a variety of positions in or on the edges of municipal government during the past two decades, and when elected in 2009 was the highest vote-getter on that year’s slate of local candidates. McGroarty thanked board members for “four great years I’ve had,” and also thanked other volunteers “who are the first-rate people that make this a first-class township.” He will be succeeded by incoming Commissioner Shawn Watson, who takes his oath of office tonight (Monday, Jan. 6, 2014) during the board’s reorganization meeting.
