Longtime Phoenixville Mayor Scoda attends final meeting

By Frank Otto, The Mercury, 12/11/13

PHOENIXVILLE — After 16 years as mayor and decades in public service, Leo Scoda sat at the table of his last Phoenixville Borough Council meeting Tuesday night.

“It’s been a thrill for me, really, to see the resurgence, the revitalization of this community, not just in the downtown, but the growth that we’ve had,” Scoda said in his final mayoral address to council.

Current East Ward Councilman Mike Speck will take over for Scoda next month at council’s Jan. 6 reorganization meeting. Scoda announced his intention to retire from politics last January and did not run for re-election.

The desire to spend more time with his grandchildren influenced Scoda’s decision against seeking a fifth term, he said.

A fixture in Phoenixville, between his 30-year teaching career in the Phoenixville Area School District, coaching high school tennis and his service as mayor and on council, Scoda regularly attended events across the borough and reported on them at council meetings. …

Police top issue for Malvern mayoral candidates

by Brent Glasgow, Daily Local News, 5/16/13

Incumbent Gerard “Jerry” McGlone and challenger Dave Burton will see where they stand heading to November in next Tuesday’s Malvern Borough mayoral primary.

McGlone (R), a borough resident since 1998 seeking his fourth term, said he has been and will continue to be focused on the office’s main priority – Malvern’s police department.

Thirteen months ago, controversy gripped Malvern when it was discovered McGlone and the borough council were looking into the option of outsourcing the department to a neighboring township as a cost-cutting measure. As was the case then, McGlone said that it never went past the research phase.

“In my mind we were doing the right thing as leaders of the municipality to evaluate what was out there,” McGlone said. “In no way was I ever convinced that it was the right decision.”

With the recent hiring of Chief Lou Marcelli, McGlone likes where the department is currently and moving forward.

“I think we’re in a wonderful place right now with our arrangement,” McGlone said. “My commitment will always be to maintain the Malvern Police Department. I’ll do everything in power to make sure that doesn’t change.”

McGlone, a practice leader with Trion, said one of the biggest things on the borough’s horizon is the future of its industrial park.

“There’s a lot of property owners and people who’ve shown a lot of interest in doing some things up there,” McGlone said. “As a whole, we also want to create an atmosphere and encourage business owners to thrive, while attracting more to fill in along King Street.”

Burton (D) has lived in the borough for 43 years, and wants to bring his viewpoints and thoughts to the office.

“I’m not as busy now as I used to be, and I would like to give back to the community,” Burton said. “I feel I have a perspective having been here all that time, watching the borough grow and continue to grow.”

Burton, a teacher at the Concern Treatment Unit for Boys in Coatesville, said he has attended a lot of council meetings to learn about all of the borough’s issues. Like McGlone, he said the police force is at the top of the list.

“It seems to me that with the borough growing, the police force will be even more important,” Burton said.

Burton said he wants to pull from his own past managerial experience to benefit Malvern. …
