Potter County Township Convention Saturday Not A Public Event

Officials representing townships of the second class in Potter County will convene on Saturday, September 25th at Potato City Country Inn for their 81st Annual County Convention. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. with the Convention starting at 9:00 a.m.

Contrary to the information published in the Potter Leader-Enterprise, THE TOWNSHIP OFFICIALS CONVENTION IS NOT FREE AND IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. IT IS ONLY FOR ELECTED TOWNSHIP OFFICIALS (SUPERVISORS, AUDITORS, TAX COLLECTORS AND SECRETARIES) AND INVITED GUESTS.

The purpose of the annual convention is to provide township officials with up-to-date information to help them better serve their residents and to give them an opportunity to exchange ideas on local government issues.

The convention will feature a wide range of speakers, including James Wheeler, director of environmental affairs; manager, CDL programs of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors. Wheeler will talk about legislation affecting townships of the second class, association programs and services for townships, and issues of major importance to townships and their residents.

The State Association of Township Supervisors represents Pennsylvania’s 1, 455 townships of the second class, 24 of which are located in Potter County.

Other speakers who will address the township officials include Honorable Stephen Minor, Judge of Potter County; Suzan Paisley representing State Representative Martin T. Causer; Peter Winkler representing U.S. Representative Glenn Thompson; Chuck Dillon representing Lieutenant Governor Joseph B. Scarnati; Charlotte Deitrick, Potter County Planning; Potter County Commissioners Douglas Morley, Paul Heimel and Susan Kefover; and Marlin Moore for the Committee for Earned Income Tax. The afternoon will feature a Round Table discussion to answer questions from the Township Officials.

It is important that all Township Supervisors, Township Secretaries, Auditors and Tax Collectors attend the convention.

The more important question is why isn't it open to the public??? Elected officials meeting with no one to report. Exactly what's wrong with politics!!

Read the sunshine laws. This is not a meeting to discuss and make decisions, it is a gathering to informally discuss what the townships are able to do to improve the way that they function and better server the communities that they represent. What is wrong with that? It is not different than the yearly convention in Hershey, and that is not open to the public either. Get a grip on something besides your genitalia.
