SEC Reverses Opinion

Neshaminy's solicitor, Tom Profy, advised the board of a recent ruling by the PA State Ethics Commission regarding board members participating in labor negotiations when they have a family member employed by the district. The SEC has reversed its earlier opinion and now states that board members can participate in negotiations under such circumstances. This means that Joe Blasch and I can now be involved in the negotiations with the teachers if we so choose.

I can't speak for Mr. Blasch, but I don't anticipate being involved in the active negotiations but rather will remain updated on developments and offer my opinions to those board members who are on the negotiating committee.

Hope you'll influence the board to kick these negotiations into high gear.
