Trafford manager, councilwoman resign
Trafford Manager Jeff McLaughlin and Councilwoman Vicki Megon have decided to move on.
Council accepted both officials' resignations on Tuesday night.
McLaughlin, who had been on the job since March 2013, will be replaced on a part-time basis by Virginia Finnegan, who has been serving as the interim Harmony Township manager.
Councilman John Daykon said Finnegan, who lives in Monroeville, is expected to start in mid-July.
Meanwhile, Megon, who joined council in 2010, tearfully offered her resignation. Though she credited council members for making “great strides in this town over the past five or six years,” Megon said she thought the borough was lacking in other areas, like being able to retain volunteers.
“At this time, I do not feel we are striving for the same things,” she said.
Megon said she would continue to be involved in planning the borough's Holiday Happenings event.
Council set a July 18 deadline for residents who want to submit letters describing their interest in the seat.
