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.

He said he'd get to it, and little by little, he is. Mayor Street will soon add the next high-level member of his team as he reaches to the Lone Star State for the administration's finance director. Street is expected to appoint Janice Davis, currently chief financial officer for the Dallas Independent School District to the finance post soon, sources have told the Daily News. Davis has been at the troubled Dallas school district less than two years, moving into the post in September 1998 from the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, where she was budget director.

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. "My tenure with Haverford was designed to be relatively short-term," he said. "I had let the board (of commissioners) know of my intentions to move on. " 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.

CONSHOHOCKEN Conshohocken officials on Friday fired the borough manager, a longtime employee who also served as finance director. Francis Marabella had worked for Conshohocken for more than eight years, Councilman Robert Stokley said. But in recent months the council members began considering that the borough's operations and finances might be more efficiently managed by two people, not one. "It's a lot of work, holding those two positions," said Stokley, who indicated that the council decided several weeks ago to terminate Marabella.

ISSUE | TIME Kids' safety tops A recent letter urging the extension of daylight saving time year-round overlooked crucial issues ("Dark winter evenings pose a double risk," Nov. 11). A study quoted did not account for schoolchildren on the roads in the morning. In winter, daylight would not come to many parts of the country until nearly 9 a.m. That would place in harm's way many children waiting for buses or walking to school. Also, there would be more accidents as commuters rush to work.

U.S. REP. Allyson Schwartz has not officially announced plans to run for governor in 2014. But that hasn't stopped the rush of Democrats interested in grabbing her 13th District seat, which covers parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery County. One of them, former City Controller Jonathan Saidel, predicts that Schwartz's political plans will be made clear next week. Saidel, who filed federal forms two weeks ago to run for her seat, said he signed on last week to serve as chairman of Schwartz's political-action committee for governor.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz has hired the state party's finance director for her own political operation, an indication the longtime congresswoman is seriously thinking about a run for the nomination to take on Gov. Corbett in 2014. Aubrey Montgomery, whose fund-raising is credited with putting Pennsylvania Democrats on a sound fiscal footing, informed her colleagues she was leaving in an e-mail Wednesday night. "While my time as a PA Dems staff member will be coming to an end, my commitment to the operation we've built, and the reputation we've earned, will continue as I move into this new role," Montgomery wrote.

THERE'S a new sheriff in town, all right, but he's turning to an old, familiar face to help straighten out his office. Ben Hayllar, who served as the city's finance director in the 1990s under then-Mayor Ed Rendell, was appointed yesterday by Sheriff Jewell Williams as his chief deputy for finance and accountability. After he took the oath of office Monday, Williams identified the post as a critical one, given the negative headlines that have haunted the office in the last year.
