The less things change, the more things stay the same in Lower Gwynedd. The Lower Gwynedd Board of Supervisors made quick work this week of deciding who will bang the gavel as its chairman in 1989. That supervisor is Ed Brandt. Brandt, first elected as chairman of the board in 1988, was the unanimous choice of the five supervisors at their reorganization meeting Tuesday night. Or was he? "Nobody saw me vote," said Supervisor Dick Landis. To be sure, Landis did not raise his voice when the vote was taken.
