Hanover Township's Humor

You might think municipal meetings are the place to be if you suffer from insomnia, but Hanover Township's collegial Board of Supervisors is always good for a few laughs.

At their May 24 meeting, they forgot to color coordinate in advance. Every single one of them walked into the meeting room, donning a Navy blue jacket. Township Manager Jay Finnigan, and even the press, were also wearing blue blazers.

Ironically, this anomaly was first noted by Supervisor John Nagle, who happens to be color blind. At their next meeting, Finnigan vowed they'll all be wearing black and white checkered coats.

With wardrobes out of the way, Supervisors were considering two appointments to the Special Events Committee. Nominees Patricia Melite, wife of Public Works Director Vince Melite, and resident Edward Bruno, were in the audience.

When Patricia Melite's appointment was unanimously approved, she gave her husband a kiss as she was leaving.

That left Bruno.

"Don't worry, Mr. Bruno, you don't have to kiss the Public Works Director on the way out," wisecracked Manager Jay Finnigan.
