It is important to have good choices in political elections and the town of Union will have a full ballot of canidates for the April 2 election.
As a resident of Union, I would like to tell about four excellent canidates who would bring honesty, fairness and new ideas to the town of Union.
Bob Phelan would be a great choice for town supervisor. He has lived in Union for 14 years, has three young children, and has worked with developmentally disabled adults in our area for many years. Bob and his family built their own home in Union and he pledges to provide leadership that listens to all the residents of Union. Bob is a kind and intelligent man who will show empathy for his neighbor’s concerns. He has promised to assist his neighbors in Union and respect landowner’s rights.
Marcella Wentworth is a terrific canidate for town chairman. She and her husband, Dan, have lived in Union for 12 years and, together, they operate a dairy farm. Marcella is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and holds an advanced master’s degree in agricultural mechanization from Kansas State University. She participates in the Appleton Farmer’s Market, has been a 4H leader for 17 years, and enjoys the annual Symco Thresheree. She will serve the citizens of Union with skill, integrity and honesty as she protects property values and works to keep local control of issues.
Dave Heideman is running for the position of supervisor 2. He is 52 years old and has lived in Union his entire life. In fact, his family has lived in Union since the late 1800s; A well-known and well-respected Union resident, he is the fifth generation of Heidemans to farm their land. In addition to farming, Dave also is employed at the Waupaca County Farm Service Agency. He has worked on the Town of Union Comprehensive Planning Committee and has completed a Waupaca County leadership development program. Dave is very qualified to represent the citizens of Union and would do so with mutual respect for the people of our township. He cares tremendously for Union and wants it to remain a beautiful, healthy, and attractive place to live and raise a family.
Donna Simons is offering her services to be the town treasurer. She has lived in Union for over 30 years and is well-known by many local residents. She and her husband, Cy, have raised three children and have been blessed with eight grandchildren. Donna has worked for over 25 years at Charter Fuels (formerly Sturm & Jensen). Donna has been inspired to serve the Town of Union by observing Barb Nollenberg, our long-time, dedicated town board leader. Donna looks forward to bringing change and new ideas to Union while serving all citizens of the town.
Please vote for these candidates on April 2.
