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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
