Dayton Township voters are happy to see that there are six new names on the ballot for offices in our township.
All positions on the Dayton Town Board have candidates opposing the incumbents.
It takes a certain kind of person to run for office.
These candidates have so many skills and abilities that they are bringing to the office for which they are seeking.
Some of their many attributes are their willingness to be transparent, communicate, relate to the needs of the taxpayers, listen, compromise and explain what they are doing and why.
They will have the needs of the residents as their number one priority.
They have the ability to understand insurance and state and county laws and regulations.
They have the experience to analyze finances and budgets and to use those funds appropriately for the good of the township.
Do they understand what they are getting into? Absolutely!
Are they qualified? You bet!
Maybe with a new town board, we can get complete and timely open record requests, well run meetings, harmony, up to date information, extended and reliable town hall hours, fiscally responsible spending, open transparency, complete information and “hearing” what the residents feel are important issues for them as they live and work in our beautiful area.
People like David Armstrong, Susan Popham, Tom Van Veen, Jane Haasch, Mike Halpin and John Miller should be applauded for stepping up to the plate.
Vote April 7 at the Dayton Town Hall.
