Rudolf hired as Kennett Twp. interim manager

KENNETT — Alison Rudolf will serve as Kennett Township’s interim township manager beginning Tuesday, May 28.

She will replace, on an interim basis, Lisa Moore, who was terminated by the township last week and is the subject of an ongoing investigation over alleged fiscal improprieties.

“We completed a search for a skilled and experienced professional who could step in and take over the day-to-day duties of township manager. We are very pleased that Alison was available and willing to accept the position,” said Kennett Township Supervisor Scudder Stevens. “Alison is proven, experienced and respected.”

Rudolf served as Township Manager in Lower Moreland Township from 1982 until 2008. During the past 10 years, she served as an interim manager in other municipalities.  Before serving in Lower Moreland, she was Assistant Township Manager in Bristol Township.

Rudolf holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Penn State University.

The search for a permanent Township Manager is expected to take several months. Lafayette College’s Meyner Center has been contracted to aid in the search.

The supervisors have been handling most of the duties of the Township Manager since April 25, 2019, after a township bank identified suspicious transactions in township accounts and informed Supervisors. Since then, two investigations have begun and the Township Manager was dismissed on Friday, May 17.

“The Supervisors are intent on upholding the public trust. The hiring of Alison Rudolf, a professional with the highest integrity, as the interim township manager is a clear signal we are determined to have the township administered competently,” Stevens said.
