Harrison loses chairmen of planning, recreation boards

Brian C. Rittmeyer

Harrison will be seeking new members for its recreation board and planning commission after the heads of both submitted their resignations.

Jason Paulovich is resigning from the planning commission, while Joshua Nulph is stepping down from the township’s recreation board.

Paulovich, 43, said he is leaving the five-member planning commission because he and his wife are buying a home outside of the township.

Paulovich, who works for an engineering company, has been on the commission for three years and chaired it since the death of the previous chairman, David Barnas, in August 2017.

“I’m kind of sad to go,” Paulovich said.

Nulph said he is leaving the recreation board because of his work schedule. Nulph, 21, is studying finance through Liberty University and starting his own consulting business.

He had been a member of the recreation board for three years, and its chairman for going on two years.

Nulph said he will continue to be involved in the township.

“If I have learned anything over the last year, though, it is that you do not have to be in a position of leadership to make change, and that is what I will continue to do,” he said in his resignation letter. “This is my home, and I am incredibly proud of it. I will stay involved as much as work allows. I will be present, I will be active, and I will continue to do my part in moving Harrison Township forward.”

Last year, the Republican Nulph ran for state House in the 33rd District against state Rep. Frank Dermody, D-Oakmont. Nulph lost, but garnered 45 percent of the vote against the well-known, veteran incumbent who has held the seat since 1991.

Nulph said he will not be running for any office in this year’s election, but he said nothing is off the table yet for 2020.

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.
