W. Leslie Kilduff attended his first Northumberland board of supervisors meeting as the county attorney on May 10, 1984, and last week, on March 9, he attended his last.
Kilduff has retired from his post.
Supervisors on March 9 adopted a resolution in recognition of Kilduff that notes, in part, that he has “demonstrated a true dedication to serving the public for almost 33 years as legal counsel for Northumberland County” and he has “represented our local government with the highest expertise and with great distinction.”
“I have enjoyed working with all of you, and staff, and all the other supervisors, county administrators and others. I am looking forward to retiring but I am leaving you in capable hands with Mat Terry who is a fine lawyer, but more importantly, a great human being,” said Kilduff.
In February, the board hired Matson C. Terry II as the county attorney starting March 1 with the annual compensation set at $15,000.
