Why are you seeking the office (in 100 words or less)? I believe that the best form of government starts at the local level. The further away from the township level, the less control you have over what happens in your township.
If elected, what will you do to serve the people of Webster Township (in 150 words or less)? I plan to do a better job of keeping up with what’s happening in Webster Township. I am willing to listen to anyone who has some issue. I would like to see more information concerning issues within the township. I am always willing to listen to constructive criticism in hopes of being able to attempt to solve problems. I would like to see more open township meetings to discuss issues publicly.
