May 1, 1949 – January 23, 2021
The Pennsylvania Municipal League loses a historic leader with the passing of former long-time Chambersburg Council President Bill McLaughlin. Bill was our President in 2000-2001. He was the first non-city municipal official to serve in that capacity. Due to Bill’s tireless efforts and leadership League membership grew to a historic level and has continued to the present. Bill was a tremendous advocate for the League but also municipal government throughout the Commonwealth. His legacy is intact. Our heartfelt condolences to Sue and the McLaughlin family.
