Marple officials have scheduled more interviews for the job of township finance director, a post that has been vacant since December. Three candidates have been scheduled for interviews on July 22, according to Patricia Keates, president of the Board of Commissioners. Eight applicants were interviewed in April. One of those applicants was offered the job but turned it down, Keates said. The finance position has been a point of contention among commissioners since last year, when finance officer Victor DiFelice announced that he would retire on Dec. 31. Another job that had proved controversial in Marple - that of township librarian - was filled last week.

A 71-year-old Norristown man who served as finance director for the Valley Forge Convention and Visitors Bureau was busy writing checks between 2002 and 2009, law enforcement authorities said Wednesday. Under normal circumstances, that wouldn't raise an auditor's eyebrow. But 293 of those checks, totaling $775,509.44, were to himself, though they showed up on bureau books as payable to vendors, according to records filed in Montgomery County. That landed William T. Barnes of Wendover Drive in District Court in Bridgeport, where he was charged with theft by deception, theft by unlawful taking, and forgery.

I am troubled and disappointed in your editorial Wednesday, concerning my own professional integrity and the current state of city finances. Since I began as the city's finance director just one year ago, I have done everything in my power to assist the mayor, City Council, the community and the news media to better understand and comprehend the realities of the financial situation Philadelpahia faces. In fact, recognizing the reality of lack of state court funding and the difficulty of realizing $30 million or more in unspecified management savings, we submitted an amended budget during the process - a budget never introduced by Council.

Paul Leonard, director of the finance department for Haverford Township, has resigned, effective March 7. Leonard, 30, said in an interview Tuesday that he joined the township three years ago to gain experience so that he could move into a managerial position.

" Though he has no immediate job offer, Leonard said he was "interviewing aggressively" for municipal managerial positions both locally - he was raised in Whitemarsh - and out of state.

Francis Marabella had worked for Conshohocken for more than eight years, Councilman Robert Stokley said.

"It's a lot of work, holding those two positions," said Stokley, who indicated that the council decided several weeks ago to terminate Marabella.
