local townships and school boards, state,

more like Dave Kulig and less like gamers, directors,

foremost with representation, open process, and
the conversation of democracy.
House is Burning
stand outside our burning house and I scream to those inside the
house that our house is on fire. And yet those on the inside ignore
my words. They instead yell back that have it all under control
in complete ignorance saying all is fine. They close the windows
and doors to silence my words and work among themselves. I continue
to try and have my voice heard wanting to help those inside to
save our and the other houses from the growing fires. But still
all I get is those in the house telling me to go away. With every
passing minute the fire spreads. I am powerless to do anything
except be a spectator to our house going up in smoke. If only
those on the inside listened, heeded warnings, and worked with
us outside who see things in a different light and perspective.
The house is burning and all we get to do is spectate. Something's
wrong here and I am tired of no one listening to my voice. What
is it that makes those inside so much better then we outside?
If only we worked together as one instead of divided as two. The
house is burning. What do we do? How do we open the doors and
windows? Scream louder from the outside or force our way in to
save our house? The rule book and common sense makes it clear
that the house does not belong to those inside - but to all of
us and it is our house to save.

made David Kulig so special to me was HEART. But what is missing
in governing at every level is HEART. Instead of working for a
plan, pledge, and one party, David fought to listen and work for
the people with compromise, consideration, compassion, and most
of all the open and respectful conversation, he believed as much
as I do that the process of the responsibility of a representative
government to serve the voice of the people first and foremost
and not some greater good of the few is missing in every level
and board of government. But listening, understanding, and serving
others takes a lot HEART. All others should use my friend David
Kulig as a role model for how to be a friend ... and how to serve
one's community. We need to stop working for those things that
divide us and finding ways to work together on those things that
unite us. But - one of my heroes has left us today. My teacher,
my role model, my support, and my dear friend David Kulig has

the planning commission from May 2000 until his election to

$3-million riparian restoration and preservation grant fund

He resigned from the board in May 2010, to care for his first

resigned. Kulig remarried in January of this year.

Friends and Neighbors,
It is with tremendous sadness that I share the horrible news captured
in today's Bucks County Courier Times. Dave was an incredible
friend as well as a stellar asset and driving force in our community.
He selflessly dedicated countless hours and unparalleled energy
to preserving and protecting our community, with a focus on making
sure that Upper Makefield would remain the very special place
that has been for the past 200+ years. Dave's outstanding intellect
was matched by his unshakable integrity and his unwavering determination
to do the right thing for our community.
It is truly a very sad day. We will very much miss our extraordinary
friend, exceptional mentor and eloquent community advocate.
Best regards to all, with sadness ... Carol

by the board of supervisors for his service to the community.

said supervisor Conrad "Bud" Baldwin. "He had just got
married a month ago."
said Kulig's new wife, Mary Joe, "was going to move down
here. She was tying up the loose ends in Hazleton and come down
here. It's a traumatic event even if you're not emotionally involved.
He was a close friend."
Kulig, Baldwin said he was a good friend first. I started serving
with him on the planning commission in 2001. Then he ran for supervisor
and won. "He was first of all very very bright," Baldwin
said. "He was able to comprehend things. He was able to stand
back and see the whole perspective on things."
served on the planning commission from May 2000 until his election
to the board of supervisors in 2006. His term concluded at the
end of 2011. During his term on the board of supervisors, he played
an instrumental in revising the Subdivision and Land Development
Ordinance (SALDO); he helped rewrite the Comprehensive Plan of
the Newtown Area Jointure; and assisted in the establishment of
the $3-million Riparian Restoration and Preservation Grant Fund

give you the date and time of things that have happened. He was
unbelievable when it came to understanding the financial end of

away 1 1/2 years ago) and come out the other side and marry a
woman who knew him and Joanne - to have this happen - that's the
tragedy," he said. Baldwin said Kulig will "absolutely"
be missed. "In fact, he was ready to work on a commission
or another function for the township," Baldwin said.
wanted to stay involved, yet he was looking forward to the joy
of being married and Mary Joe moving down here. "He'll be
sorely missed as a good friend and also a person I learned a lot
from," he said. "It's hard to say what's going on in
your head and in your heart," Baldwin said. "I was speaking
from the heart. I'm getting lot phone calls from people."
Details of his funeral services were not immediately available.

announced that there were two other key people in the township
who had recently passed away - former supervisor John Kupits and
Paul Wojciechowski, owner of All County surveyors, which is located
in Washington Crossing.
Conrad "Bud" Baldwin said at the meeting that Kupits
"worked very diligently. He was one of the people who helped
put the jointure together in the late 70s -- early 80s.
Wojciechowski did a lot of work as a surveyor and engineer in

to our township. He had always taken the time to listen to all
sides of an issue." Cino added that Kulig would present the
position in the best interest of the township. "Professionally,
we're going to miss him and personally many of us considered him
a friend," he said.
will miss him very much," Cino said.
Baldwin said that Kulig's mental skills "were just unbelievable.
He remembered things a lot of times with his engineering background
and was number one in his class [at Penn State]. "He was
able to put his mind around a problem," Baldwin continued..
"When he talked, he listened. He was a good man - a very
good man," Baldwin said Wednesday that Kulig's wife is in
the midst of making funeral arrangements and that he would probably
know the details later in the week. "There's nothing cast
in stone," he said.
supervisor Kupits was an Upper Makefield supervisor from 1978
to the late 80s or early 90s, according to Baldwin. "He was
one of the very first people who were on the grand floor of The
Jointure," he said after the meeting. He was one of the first
chairmen of the Jointure, which is a joint zoning council, which
consists of supervisors from Newtown Township, Wrightstown Township,
Newtown Borough and Upper Makefield. Newtown Borough is no longer
part of the jointure. "He worked on the conceptual part of
it when they started putting the ordinances together," Baldwin
said. "That was at the time when we were first in the state
to put together four different municipalities. It was a grand
time. "Of course we had the Toll Brothers suit that we finally
won in the (state) Supreme Court," he said. "John was
very much a part of this. He had a heart attack in the mid-80s,
but he got back on the board. Kuptis was 90 years old. Wojciechowski
was 62 when he died. Baldwin said he was a land surveyor and an
engineer as well. "He would help the township out,"
Baldwin said. "He did a lot of easements. "He would
walk the extra mile for the people," Baldwin said. In addition
to being a consultant for Upper Makefield, Wojciechowski worked
for developers. He would do the initial survey for them. Sometimes
he would do the engineering for developers. Baldwin said Wojciechowski
was a "great person." Wojciechowski's wife is named

Dave was and cherish our treasured memories of him. Following
the service and tree planting ceremony we will gather at The Pineville

this Good Friday, we are all reminded of some important things
about Easter and life. One of my favorite quotes about this date
is from Clarence W. Hall. "If Easter says anything to
us today, it says this: You can put truth in a grave, but it won't
stay there. You
can nail it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut it
up in a tomb, but it will rise!".
Many wishes for a Happy Easter! May the joy of Easter fill up
your hearts today and forever.
