Bradford Woods is seeking applicants to fill the vacancy created by the resignation this week of Mayor Robert Murray.

Borough council Monday accepted Murray’s resignation and issued the following statement:

“The borough has been honored to have the mayor serve for the past 10 years. His service and dedication to the community is highly appreciated by council and residents.

“As mayor, he took time to listen to the residents of the borough and hear their concerns. Mr. Murray performed speeches at community events which spoke volumes of how much he cares for this community.”

The borough did not provide a reason for the mayor’s resignation. He could not be reached for comment.

Candidates are being sought to fill Murray’s unexpired term, which runs to the end of 2019.

To apply for the position, send a letter of interest and resumes to the borough office at: PO Box 163, Bradford Woods, PA 15015.

The materials also can be sent by email to: bradfordwoods@zoominternet.net.

Once the letters are received the borough will send out additional information about the position.

The deadline to apply is Sept. 30.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
