The Millcreek Township supervisors’ meeting was delayed about 20 minutes Tuesday night for a good reason.
The delay came about because Supervisor Richard Figaski wanted to see his wife, Debbie, a guidance counselor, get an “educator of the month” award during the Millcreek School Board meeting at the nearby Millcreek Education Center.
Figaski’s attendance at the supervisors’ meeting was needed for a quorum because Supervisor Brian McGrath was on vacation.
So while Supervisor Joseph Kujawa, Solicitor Evan Adair and Treasurer Gerald Wolf waited for Figaski at the dais - along with those in the audience – John Groh suggested to a reporter that he could fill the vacancy.
Groh was joking, of course, but he’d like to join the supervisors after the Nov. 5 election. Groh, a Democrat, will face Kujawa, a Republican, in that Millcreek supervisor’s election.
