Baldwin begins search for manager
A search is under way to find a replacement for the woman who has been at the forefront of Baldwin Township business and overseen day-to-day activities in the one-square mile municipality for the last 38 years.
Township Manager Mary McGinley plans to retire on March 31.
“I loved it,” McGinley said of her job in Baldwin Township.
But, she is ready to leave the business world so that she can have more time with family.
“We want to do all of the things you can't do when you're working,” McGinley said following Tuesday's board of commissioners meeting.
Township officials are accepting applications for the manager post. Applicants must have at least a bachelor's degree in public management, public administration or related field. They also must have a minimum of four years local government management experience in budget, finance, personnel, collective bargaining, public works, public safety, written communication and computer skills.
Resumés, with references, can be sent to Mary McGinley, Baldwin Township, 10 Community Park Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15234.
Baldwin Township officials are working with CONNECT and also are using Monster.com to search for applicants, McGinley said. Resumés will be reviewed in January and the hope is to have a person in place by the end of February so that McGinley can train the person on the job before she leave, she said.
McGinley said she has been planning to retire for roughly the last year. She submitted her letter of intent to retire to the board of commissioners in October with the intent of leaving in January.
Board members, however, asked her to stay on for a few extra months to help find her replacement, McGinley said.
