Northumberland County Controller Chuck Erdman Moving On

Northumberland County Controller Chuck Erdman has decided to resign effective February 13th to take a job in Governor Tom Corbett's administration.

Deputy Controller Tony Phillips will be acting controller until Governor Tom Corbett names a replacement.

Erdman won his first term as controller in 1997 and has been the controller for the past 13 years.  Always giving honest assessments of county finances, Erdman as controller was used by Democrat Vinni Clausi in a campaign ad back in 2007 drawing the ire of incumbent commissioners Sam Deitrick and Kurt Masser.  All of that seems like ancient history now.

The Voice hinted of this move back in November.  We wish Erdman well as he moves on to his future endeavor.
