More Turmoil for Lower Pottsgrove Township

In a move that North Coventry resident Dave Fisher himself described as "blindsiding," he appeared before the Lower Pottsgrove Township Commissioners Thursday night and called for the resignation of constable and zoning hearing board chairman Keith Diener.

Attempts by The Mercury to reach Diener Thursday were unsuccessful.

Fisher presented documents indicating Diener has not filed "statements of financial interest" with the State Ethics Commission, as required by law, and suggested look into whether he has filed them with the township as a zoning hearing board member, also required by law.

Vice Chairman Stephen Klotz accused Fisher of having "a personal agenda against Mr. Diener" and questioned the veracity of documents Fisher himself did not file Right to Know requests to obtain.

When Periscope video failed me, I had to switch to regular video. I also tried to switch from vertical to horizontal mid-video. Note to self, bad idea.

As a result, you can hear it all on the video, but if you want to see it, well, you're going to have to crane your neck.

In other resignation-related news, long-time township secretary Michele Cappilletti's resignation was announced and very unhappily accepted by the commissioners Thursday night.

Without further ado, here is the Twitter recap:
