Uncle Irvin: A good, quiet steward

12/15/2015 12:21PM ● By Richard Gaw

Cuyler Walker, an East Marlborough Supervisor for 18 years, including 10 years as president, stepped down on Dec. 7.

Walker and his predecessor, Richard "Buzz" Hannum, who led the township during the Walmart fiasco, probably have as much to do as anyone on shaping the East Marlborough Township as we see it today.

Outside of the State Representative flip-flop, Walker was a voice of reason, compromise, and wisdom. East Marlborough is one of the wealthiest municipalities in Pennsylvania, but Walker, like "Buzz" Hannum, was tight with a buck. Walker recently relented and spearheaded a public park, with its first phase open. Several more phases are already planned, and it might be a good time to name the park after Cuyler.
