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.

WHEN AN elected official's chief of staff resigns it's usually a bad thing for the person resigning or the office or the elected official. But last week's resignation of Gov. Wolf's chief of staff, Katie McGinty, is a good thing. Maybe even a trifecta: good for Wolf, good for the stalled state budget and good for McGinty, who seems poised to run for the U.S. Senate. It's good for Wolf because McGinty was an odd fit for chief of staff from the start. She ran against Wolf in the 2014 Democratic primary, so clearly she believed she'd be a better governor.

A stoic, old-school manager, Ryne Sandberg showed some emotion Friday in his last day with the Phillies. Sandberg, 55, arrived at Citizens Bank Park at 10 a.m. and then dropped a bombshell on his bosses: He was walking away from this season of endless frustration and consistent losing. Third base coach Pete Mackanin was named the interim manager, the third time he has been in the position. With a 26-48 record entering Friday, the Phillies had the worst mark in Major League Baseball, and the pain from managing a team that last produced a winning season in 2011 was clearly evident.

Less than a day after Mayor Nutter convened his police-reform task force, one of its members resigned amid controversy over his own teenage criminal background. Edwin Desamour, an anti-violence activist who works with at-risk teens, served more than eight years in prison for his involvement in a 1989 street fight that killed a police officer's son. Desamour was one of 24 named Friday to the Police Community Oversight Board. Mark McDonald, a spokesman for the mayor, said Sunday that Desamour immediately offered his resignation when police objected to his inclusion on the panel, which is tasked with tightening rules on police use of force and overseeing departmental reforms.
