LIBERTY

Good times and bad ones — Liberty fiscal officer John Fusco remembers them all for the past 29 years.

“It all evens out,” said Fusco, who will be retiring Nov. 30. He is the longest-serving elected official in the township.

Fusco remembers packed trustee meetings years ago, as opposed to the sparsely attended meetings now during more quiet times.

When he first started, he said, he and a secretary did mostly everything a township administrator would do.

“Now we have an administrator,” he said.

Trustees accepted Fusco’s retirement at their meeting Tuesday. They also accepted the retirement of road superintendent Michael Adler. Adler worked for the township for 28 years.

“I’d like to thank all the people through the years,” Fusco said. “Standing in cold weather at the polls — it’s them, not me.”

“I’ve been here so long it feels like a second home,” he added.

Fusco said he’s not sure what he’ll do after retirement.

“I can’t sit home, I know that,” he said.

Trustees and administrator Pat Ungaro praised Fusco for his service.

“To run for political office takes a lot of work and dedication,” Nudell said.

Trustee Jason Rubin told Adler that he did a good job with the road department.

“He was a working foreman,” Nudell said. “This kind of dedication by our staff makes our job a lot easier.”

“Time flies,” Adler said. “It goes fast. It’s been a pleasure working for the township.”

Rubin said the township will appoint a new fiscal officer, and road department employee Guss Economous has been promoted to foreman.
