Supervisors honor Maguire’s memory

BOS credits former member with county’s use of CB wastewater treatment plant

The Westmoreland Supervisors took time out this Monday to remember board colleague Jack Maguire, who passed away Thursday after a long battle with cancer.
“We have lost someone who was on this board for a long time,” began Board of Supervisors Chairman Woody Hynson.
“This county and the Town of Colonial Beach would never have had a working relationship with the sewer agreement had it not been for Jack Maguire, who represented District 5.
“Jack always said we could work it out. He stuck in there and said over and over that he knew the county and town could get together because coming to an agreement would benefit both groups. I give Jack the credit for having the Washington District sewer.”

Vice Chairman Darryl Fisher agreed with Hynson and delivered a prayer in gratitude for Jack Maguire’s service to the county.
“Let us pause to remember one who served well on this board,” Fisher said.
“The Father called home one who went through a lot for a long, long time. Let us at this time remember him in a kind and affectionate way. We will always be grateful for his untiring service on this board.”
Former Colonial Beach Councilman Larry Roberson, who was elected to succeed Maguire, shared his own fond memories of the public servant he replaced.
“It’s just sad,” Roberson commented.
“He worked very hard and there are a lot of people who have no idea how hard he worked on the sewer agreement and everything else.
“Jack was always looking out for the town and county at the same time. He did a lot of really good things,” Roberson explained.
The supervisors adopted a resolution of respect on Monday morning. A document and plaque will be presented to the former board member’s widow, Nancy, at a later date.
The proclamation notes that Jack Maguire “served the community with honor and dignity.” His Westmoreland Planning Commission service began in 1994 and ended in December 2003. For most of that interval Maguire served as chair.
The proclamation goes on to note that in January 2004 Maguire began his duties as the District 5 member of the Board of Supervisors and ended as the result of illness in March 2007.
“Jack Maguire was a man of utmost integrity who devoted himself to an honorable career in public service to improve the life of everyone in Westmoreland County,” the document relates.
“Respect of his memory causes this resolution to be part of the official minutes of this meeting on September 13, 2010.”
“Jack was a good man who taught me never to say it’s impossible, never to give up,” Hynson commented.
Referencing the Colonial Beach and Westmoreland County agreement that resulted in the Washington District sewer projects, Hynson then stated, “I was ready to throw in the towel. He taught me never to give up.”
