Kraynik expected to get nod tonight as Upper Merion manager

Kraynik expected to get nod tonight as Upper Merion manager



David G. Kraynik is expected to be voted in tonight as the official Upper Merion Township manager.


Kraynik, township manager in Cheltenham, accepted a conditional offer of employment on May 10.  


After Ron Wagenmann announced on February 16 that he was going to retire as township manager, the board of supervisors met on March 8, 2012, to create a search committee.


David Woglom, associate director of the Meyner Center at Lafayette College, was brought in to guide the five-member committee through the interview and selection process. The vetting began with 40 candidates from all over the country.


Erika Spott, chairperson of the board of supervisors, Greg Waks, vice chair, and three township residents were on the search committee. Wagenmann who sat in on the initial review process said he was comfortable with the committee's decision.


Wagenmann said, “I chose to participate in an advisory capacity, only to ensure that a fair, accurate and unbiased process would allow the elected board to preserve a good working relationship with their candidate.”  He said, “I felt the final decision needed to be made solely by the board of supervisors.”  


Wagenmann retires in December, 2012. Kraynik starts work July 9, 2012.
