|Mayor Yob serves the people literally|
Yob believes his biggest accomplishment in borough government has been its police department.. He'd like to beef it up a little in his last term. But in contrast to some other boroughs, Yob made clear that the Mayor and Council should help he police department, b ut stay away from telling it how to do its job.
He's 87 years old and looks 20 years younger His mother lived until she was 102 and his father died at age 93.
Combining his years on Council and as Mayor, Yob has served Freemansburg for 48 years.
But West Easton Mayor Gerald Gross has him beat. When he retires at the end of this year, he will have spent 52 years as Mayor and Council member.
