Former Manassas Park Councilman, Mayor Joins Planning Commission

Councilman William "Bill" Treuting is now a member of the Manassas Park Planning Commission.

Former Manassas Park City Councilman William "Bill" Treuting is now a member of the city's planning commission, an advisory body to city council.

An official welcome for Treuting is on the planning commission's agenda for this evening. 

The six-member commission is comprised of volunteers from the community who serve four-year terms. 

Treuting's joining the body after he lost his re-election bid in the November City Council election.

Treuting had served on the city's governing body since 1997.

Contender Jeanette Rishell won the most votes during the election, scoring one of the three seats up for grabs. Councilmen Brian Polk and Keith Miller were re-elected to council. 

In addition to welcoming Treuting, the planning commission will also hold elections for president and vice president of the body, according to the commisson's agenda.

The planning commission meets at 7 p.m. on first Monday of each month in the governing body chambers.

Excellent news! Thank you, Mr. Treuting, for continuing to serve Manassas Park so well.

You would think he would have received the message when he lost his reelection bid, but I guess he just couldn't stay away. He's left enough of a mark on this city and found a way to bypass the wishes of the voters. I wonder what he has up his sleeve now?

Let see here Bill gets voted out like Bloomie said, and then appointed to a board through the good ole boys network. Great job MP on same as usual style of governing.
