Wrightsville Borough Council vice president says he is intentionally skipping meetings

In the waning days of their terms on Wrightsville Borough Council, members Rick McDonald and Frederick Smith Jr. have skipped two or three meetings, leaving the York County council without a quorum.

And Smith, who is council's vice president, said that for him it's intentional. He disagrees with council President Eric J. White's approach to filling a seat on Borough Council and two upcoming vacancies on the Wrightsville Municipal Authority.

"The filling of these three vacancies by a lame-duck council are great injustices in my opinion, which I could not stop by being present and voting," Smith said in an email. "But I could stop them by not being present at all. So that is what I have chosen to do."
