Howard Kutzler Going to South Whitehall Township
In a late Friday afternoon memo, Hammer reports that Kutzler will start in South Whitehall Township on November 4 as their Director of Administration. He'll be taking over Tony Ganguzza's job as he transitions to part time status.
On October 8, I told you that Kutzler was resigning as Bethlehem Township Manager. He denies his decision has anything to do with politics. But I wonder.
In the primary, long-time Commissioner Paul Weiss was defeated by two candidates backed by developer Abe Atiyeh. One of his employees, Mickey Thompson, is running for Michael Hudak's seat. Atiyeh helped elect Felix "Phil" Bernard and Marty Zawarski. It is all but certain that, come November, Atiyeh will be in effective control of Bethlehem Township government.
