Harmar Supervisor Patricia Janoski stepping down

Emily Balser

Harmar supervisors will be looking for a new board member after the resignation of Patricia Janoski.

Supervisors Chairman Bob Seibert said Janoski submitted a letter of resignation effective Feb. 12. No reason was given.

He expects the board to formally accept the resignation during Thursday’s meeting.

“We will miss Pat and I think over the years she did an excellent job as chairman,” Seibert said.

Janoski, 80, was serving the sixth and final year of her term as supervisor. Before being elected as a supervisor, she served as the township’s tax collector for about 13 years, Seibert said.

“She’s done a lot of good things for Harmar Township,” he said.

The board will accept letters over the next month from residents interested in serving out the rest of Janoski’s term.

Seibert said he expects the board to appoint a replacement in March.

Applicants can send their letters of interest to the township building, 701 Freeport Road, Cheswick, PA 15024.

Attempts to contact Janoski were unsuccessful. A number listed for her was no longer in service.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
