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.

As Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt tells it, he walked into the commissioners' Jan. 6 reorganization meeting with two proposals written out in his leather-bound notebook. One proposal was to nominate newcomer Lisa Deeley to chair the three-member commissioner board that oversees city elections. The other was to renominate a man who had become known for his City Hall absences and having not voted in six elections: Commissioner Anthony Clark. Schmidt went with the latter and, with Clark's acceptance of the chairman's $138,612 post, set off a firestorm.

IT'S A funny little paradox. A boss who urges even interns under his employ to address him by his first name is to receive an award named for a boss whose highest-level employees refuse to do so out of respect . . . Or fear. It's never been quite certain when it comes to Ed Snider. During his more cordial times - when he was not searing that unblinking stare of his through your forehead - Snider has insisted that he does not require his employees - even his general managers - to call him "Mr. " and that it makes him a little uncomfortable when they do. That's never been a problem for 69-year-old Phillies chairman David Montgomery.
