WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - After 40 years on the job, the first township manager of Washington Township is retiring.
Michael Christopher started the position back in 1977. He said he's most proud of the development of the Washington Township boulevard that connects the east side to the west side of Waynesboro. During his tenure, he helped with creating more than 15 parks in the area, the 9/11 memorial and the Monterey Pass Battlefield Park and Museum. He said he will miss his fellow colleagues and serving everyone in the community.
“That’s what makes coming to this job very interesting and rewarding, is that somebody that day is going to do something to make this community better in most days,” said Michael Christopher, township manger.
Christopher will officially be retired next week as assistant township manager Jeffrey Geesaman will then take over.
