Pat Breslin, who missed five of 22 meetings in 2015, was elected President over Tom Nolan in a 3-2 vote at the reorganization meeting conducted on January 4. Breslin was nominated by Michael Hudak, and newcomer Kim Jenkins voted to support him. Malissa Davis, the other new member, supported Nolan.
Two of the three Democrats on Bethlehem Township's Board, Jenkins and Hudak, voted to install a tea party member as President.
Hudak, who missed three meetings and walked out of a fourth, was elected Vice President by Breslin and Jenkins. Davis supported Tom Nolan.

Solicitor Jim Broughal cautioned that Weiss is required by law to resign from the Recreation Board, and Weiss agreed to do so.
"Make sure you put your thick skin on," Hudak advised Jenkins and Davis of the year ahead.
Davis, Jenkins and Nolan were administered the oath at the beginning of the meeting by Judge Jennifer Sletvold, a Bethlehem Township resident herself who at one time was a member of the Zoning hearing Board. At that time, in what I admit was a cheap shot, I made fun of her designer glasses, which she apparently bought at a Dollar Store. She reminded me of that transgression last night, but I told her that was my evil twin, not me.
I took no damn oath.

Though I'm biting my tongue at this vote, I've resolved to take no shots at the newcomers for their first few meetings.
