It will be alumni night at the Cherry Hill Township Council tomorrow: Democrat David Fleisher, 39, who served on the council for nine years until 2006, will be sworn back in to replace Shelley Adler, 49, who resigned after her husband, John, was elected to the U.S. House in November.

The Democratic Party, which controls all seven seats on the council, had selected three nominees last week: Fleisher, Richard Supnick, and Gerald Faber.

Fleisher, a financial planner who has lived in Cherry Hill since age 5, said Council President Steve Polansky had since informed him that there was an informal consensus in his favor and that he would be appointed at a meeting at the municipal building at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow.

Adler was elected to a four-year term in 2005. Polansky and Mayor Bernie Platt had said they were looking for a replacement with a solid background in finance who could quickly get up to speed on township budget issues. - Rick Nichols
