Falls Supervisor Resigns, Board Looks to Fill Seat Opening
A Falls Township Supervisor submitted his letter of resignation Monday and the board will formally accept it at its next meeting.
Supervisor Jeff Rocco’s resigned Monday, saying a recent promotion at work has made it more challenging to juggle his board and career responsibilities.
“I totally underestimated how much more demanding this new position would be, and how much more focus, commitment, and dedication it would require,” Rocco, who served as secretary, wrote to the board. “This position also requires some travel, and I would miss our next three (September, October, and November) Board of Supervisors meeting. The bottom line is there is just no way I can make both work.”
Supervisors Chairman Jeff Dence expressed gratitude for Rocco’s commitment to the township, his keen attention to detail, and his hard work throughout his nearly two terms.
“The board wishes Jeff the best of luck in his future endeavors,” Dence said. “He will be missed.”
Rocco said he’s proud of what he has accomplished on the board in his nearly 10 years.
“One thing that makes it easier stepping down is knowing what a great team we currently have in place,” Rocco said. “I know, with or without me, you guys will make the right decisions. The pleasure to serve on the board with you has been all mine, and I will be forever grateful for this opportunity.”
Falls is accepting resumes from township residents interested in filling Rocco’s seat. Rocco’s six-year term continues through Dec. 31, 2023. Letters of interest can be sent to Rose Molle, Falls Township executive administrative assistant to the township manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to her attention at 215-949-9013.
