Pleasant Hills Council seeking to fill vacated seat


Pleasant Hills leaders are looking to fill a vacancy on borough council, after Regis Brown resigned effective Feb. 28.

Council members accepted Brown’s resignation at their meeting on Feb. 19. Anyone interested in filling the vacancy should submit a letter of interest or resume by March 4.

In his resignation letter, Brown said as to why he’s resigning: “I have had a couple of discussions with ‘Father Time’ — conclusion — ‘it’s time.’”

During his time in public office, Brown has served on both Pleasant Hills council and the West Jefferson Hills school board.

“I enjoy being active, but feel that I am not able to carry my share of council’s responsibilities,” he wrote. “During the past 60 years, my family and I have enjoyed the friendship of the Pleasant Hills community.”

Council members have 30 days to fill the vacated seat, borough Manager Kelly Theiss said.

Resumes and/or letters of interest should be sent to Theiss at [email protected] or mailed to Theiss’ attention at 410 East Bruceton Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15236.

The documents also can be dropped off at the borough building’s administration department on the second floor, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The outside of the envelope should be marked, “Letters of interest — council seat vacancy.”

All interested candidates must have resided in Pleasant Hills for one year prior to appointment and must be a registered elector of the borough.

Theiss said council members plan to conduct interviews for the open seat and appoint a person in March.

The person who fills the vacant seat will be in office through the end of 2019.

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.
