This just in from Bucks County Public Information Director Chris Edwards:
With his 6,130th consecutive day of service to the County of Bucks taking place today, March, 2, 2012, Commissioner Vice Chairman Charles H. Martin officially supplants former Commissioner Sandra A. Miller as the longest tenured commissioner in Bucks County’s 330-year history.
Commissioner Martin, who was appointed on May 22, 1995 and has served 10 times as chairman of the Board of Commissioners, has served the 625,000 residents of Bucks County during an unprecedented time of capital progress, fiscal stability and land preservation.
Miller served 6,129 days as commissioner between March, 1991 and January, 2008. She and Martin worked together for 14 of those years – or more than 4,500 days. During 2006, Miller passed former Commissioner Andrew Warren, who previously held the Commissioners’ service record of 5,580 days. Warren served Bucks County from January 7, 1980 until April 17, 1995.
