Richmond Township Road Commissioner Submits Resignation — 4 Comments

  1. I am hearing that Booby Miller is very interested this vacancy.

    Could it be ?

  2. My standard Public Sector resume simply states:

    Have left a path of destruction, lawsuits and malfeasance every where I’ve worked.

    I think it’s under a bag of weed in a upstairs drawer, will find and submit.

    Now, when do I start?

  3. Health issues? C’mon!

    He doesn’t do a damn thing and can run the dept. from Arizona.

  4. Unless Miller has a house tucked away in Richmond Township not going to happen.

    Dave’s done more than most, cut the guy some slack.
