At a special meeting of the Peninsula Township Board, Rob Manigold will be appointed township supervisor, filling the role of previous supervisor Pete Correia, who passed away this weekend after a long battle with cancer.
After winning the August 2 primary election, Manigold was set to take office in November, along with the rest of the new officers, including Township Clerk Joanne Westphal, Township Treasurer Brad Bickle and Township Trustees Margaret Achorn, Maura Sanders, Warren Wahl and Isaiah Wunsch.

Manigold will step into the role early, as will Westphal, who takes over as clerk on September 9, following the resignation of previous clerk Monica Hoffman.
The special meeting to appoint Manigold will take place on September 7, 2016 at 8 a.m. in the Township Office Conference Room. There is also space on the agenda for brief citizen comments.
Along with the incoming Peninsula Township Treasurer and Trustees, other changes that have occurred in the leadership of Peninsula Township include the resignation of Director of Planning & Zoning Michelle Reardon and the resignation of Township Clerk Monica Hoffman.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP.
