The Phoenix - - FRONT PAGE -

The Schuylkill Town­ship Board of Su­per­vi­sors has ap­pointed Ed­ward (“EJ”) M. Men­try Jr. as the new town­ship man­ager.

Men­try comes to Schuylkill Town­ship from Up­per Nazareth Town­ship, Northamp­ton County, where he has served as the town­ship man­ager since 2015. Men­try was se­lected af­ter an ex­ten­sive search to re­place Schuylkill Town­ship’s long­time man­ager, Mary Bird.

“EJ pos­sesses the skills nec­es­sary to be an out­stand­ing man­ager and com­mu­nity leader,” said su­per­vi­sors’ Chair­woman Martha Ma­jew­ski. “His back­ground in plan­ning and lo­cal gov­ern­ment cou­pled with his strong work ethic make EJ an ex­cel­lent choice.”

Men­try is a grad­u­ate of Vil­lanova Univer­sity with a B.A. in po­lit­i­cal science and a Mas­ter of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion. He will re­port to the Board of Su­per­vi­sors and su­per­vise the ad­min­is­tra­tive and pub­lic works staff. He will be re­spon­si­ble for all mu­nic­i­pal projects, rev­enues and ex­pen­di­tures, in­clud­ing the prepa­ra­tion of the an­nual man­ager’s rec­om­mended bud­get.

“The board did an ex­haus­tive search for the man­ager po­si­tion and found the best can­di­date for the po­si­tion,” Ma­jew­ski said. “With EJ’s back­ground and his drive to serve the res­i­dents of Schuylkill Town­ship, we will con­tinue to head in a pos­i­tive di­rec­tion as a mu­nic­i­pal­ity for years to come.”

Men­try will start his new po­si­tion with Schuylkill Town­ship on Oct. 29.
