Two-term Hainesport Mayor Michael J. McMullen's resignation will be officially ruled upon at Tuesday's Township Committee meeting, township officials said. McMullen's letter of resignation, slated for review by township solicitor Bennett E. Bozarth, was entered into the record last Tuesday at a committee work session. Committee members were reluctant to act on the resignation, according to Committeeman Charles W. Gray. "We're not quite sure how to handle this," he said. "We just want to know the legal way to do it. " Township officials said McMullen abruptly walked out of an April 11 committee meeting when resident George Gauvry, a Zoning Board member, accused him of a "lack of leadership.

The Magnolia Council last night unanimously accepted the resignation of borough tax collector Maria Capuzzi. Capuzzi said in a letter received by the council Tuesday that she wanted her resignation retroactive to March 19. She did not give a reason in her letter for quitting, but she had been under fire from the council. Contacted at her home after last night's meeting, Capuzzi declined to comment on her resignation. Last month, Capuzzi said she had not been to work since the middle of February and had failed to attend three council meetings called especially to discuss her job performance and alleged record-keeping problems in the tax collection office because of "nervous tension, stress and pressure" related to her job. At that time, Mayor Catherine M. Quigley said Capuzzi had continued to use a record-keeping method that the council twice last year asked her to change.

The Haverford Township Board of Commissioners has agreed to try to "clear the air" concerning the resignation last month of Justine Hocker as director of the township library, but it has fallen short of asking her to reconsider her resignation. The commissioners were presented Monday night with a petition, containing more than 170 names, that urged Hocker to remain as librarian. The petition revived questions about her resignation, which many township observers said they believed had been forced by John Toal, a member of the library board of trustees.

HARRISBURG - John Quigley, a longtime environmental advocate and fixture in Pennsylvania politics, resigned Friday as the state's top environmental officer, days after a private email he wrote stoked the latest controversy over his tenure. The Wolf administration would not say why Quigley abruptly left his post as secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection. Gov. Wolf named the DEP's policy director, Patrick McDonnell, as acting secretary. "I thank John Quigley for his service to the commonwealth, and I look forward to working with Patrick McDonnell," the governor said in a statement.

By Rebecca Love Kourlis In the wake of Justice Michael Eakin's resignation from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Gov. Wolf will need to appoint a successor to fill the vacancy. I would like to suggest that he has an ideal opportunity to fulfill that responsibility in a way designed to restore public confidence in the judicial branch. Pennsylvania elects its judges and justices. However, Pennsylvania lawmakers are currently considering a constitutional amendment that would replace contested elections of appellate judges with commission-based gubernatorial appointment.

A Change.org petition with 468 signatures is calling for the resignations of Coatesville Area School District Superintendent Cathy Taschner and assistant superintendent Kim Donahue. The petition was started three weeks ago by Fonz Newsuan, a Coatesville education activist, who has accused Taschner of mismanagement and failure to deal with discipline problems in the schools. Citing "a big groundswell against Dr. Taschner," Newsuan said he had gathered about 400 more signatures in door-to-door canvassing and was planning a meeting of supporters at New Life in Christ Church in Coatesville on Monday evening.

When the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board first cleared state Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin of any wrongdoing with his emails, its chief counsel praised him for being "helpful and cooperative. " How helpful was the justice? "I have not retained copies of any email at all," he told the board in 2014. What about his emails with suggestive pictures or racially offensive jokes? "I recall no such emails," Eakin said. The justice resigned Tuesday after tearful apologies about his troubling emails failed to quell public outrage, but his fight goes on. And his unlikely ally is none other than the Judicial Conduct Board, the agency responsible for prosecuting him on ethics charges.

THE EAGLES made another move to solidify their defensive backfield Tuesday, signing corner Nolan Carroll to a one-year deal worth $2.36 million that can pay as much as $3 million, a source close to the situation said. Carroll, 29, started 11 games for the Eagles in 2015, intercepting two passes, before suffering a season-ending broken fibula. He is expected to contend with Leodis McKelvin, signed as a free agent from Buffalo, for the starting job opposite Eric Rowe, the team's 2015 second-round draft pick.

A director of Aqua America Corp. has resigned after questioning whether his fellow board members at the Bryn Mawr-based for-profit water company are truly independent and capable of criticizing the company's chairman, Nicholas DeBenedictis, who has held the top board post since 1993. The dissident, Michael L. Browne, goes way back with the chairman: Browne and DeBenedictis served together in Republican Pennsylvania Gov. Dick Thornburgh's cabinet in the 1980s. DeBenedictis later served on Browne's board when Browne ran Harleysville Mutual Insurance Co. And Browne joined DeBenedictis' board at Aqua America in 2013 after he sold Harleysville to Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. Their reciprocal relationship was upended on March 10 when another Aqua director, Ellen Ruff, told Browne he "will not be renominated to the board of directors of Aqua America" because of "my lack of public utility experience," Browne wrote in a letter that Aqua made public in an SEC filing.

Michael Eakin has resigned his seat on the state's highest court, months after being charged with judicial ethics lapses for his involvement in a pornographic email scandal. He is the second top jurist to step down amid revelations that prosecutors, judges, and law enforcement officials for years exchanged pornographic and otherwise offensive emails, often using state computers. "We have lost one of the finest jurists on the court," Eakin's lawyer, William Costopoulos, said at a news conference Tuesday.

The members of the board should have then submitted their resignations for the lapse in their fiduciary duty to properly supervise the two executives.

The city's director of human resources has resigned amid a revamping of the department by Mayor Kenney, which the chair of the city's Civil Service Commission said had caused "bad blood" between the administration and the department. Albert D'Attilio submitted a letter of resignation last week. In an email to The Inquirer, D'Attilio said his leaving was unrelated to changes at the office. But Civil Service Chair Doris A. Smith said frustrations in the human resources department had mounted as the administration worked around D'Attilio, often leaving him out of critical meetings and conversations.
