The five-member Falls Township Board of Supervisors has a vacancy following Supervisor Jeff Rocco’s resignation on Monday.
Rocco, of Fallsington, who has served on the board since 2012, said a recent career promotion has made it increasingly more challenging to juggle his work and board responsibilities. The Pennsbury High School graduate has worked for more than two decades in the information technology industry.
“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.”
The board will formally accept Rocco’s resignation during the Supervisors’ monthly meeting on Sept. 20.
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 email@example.com or faxed to her attention at 215-949-9013.
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.”
