LIMERICK PA – In separate ceremonies, with their left hands gently laid upon a green-covered Bible with gilt lettering, three new Limerick Township elected officials formally swore oaths of office Tuesday night (Jan. 2, 2018) and began their government duties. The oaths, administered by Magisterial District Justice Richard Welsh, opened the reorganization meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
Welcomed to their new positions were incoming Supervisor Patrick M. Morroney (at top), Tax Collector Ryan P. Wall (above), and Auditor Diana Uhia (below).
Among Morroney’s first orders of business was to cast votes for board leadership. Supervior Elaine DeWan was chosen as chairman, and Kenneth Sperring as vice chairman. Supervisors then designated township Manager Daniel Kerr as its secretary, and approved his contract as township manager; named Timothy Haas as assistant secretary; appointed Beth DiPrete as treasurer, and approved a surety bond for her office in the amount of $10 million.
