Mrs. Dixon is asking town of Dayton residents to support five inexperienced candidates for office. Let’s look at these individuals:
• Mr. Armstrong, retired, just moved to Dayton and built a new home on the Chain O’ Lakes. He has no prior experience with town government, but she thinks he should be town chairman.
• Mr. Halpin has no experience with town government, and he hasn’t shown up to any town meetings, and she thinks he should be town supervisor.
• Mr. Miller, retired, lives on the Chain O’ Lakes, has no experience in town government, has been to less than a handful of town meetings, and she thinks he should be town supervisor.
• Ms. Haasch, retired, limited experience in town government as planning commission member, but she at least attends most town meetings, and she thinks she should be town supervisor.
• Mrs. Popham, longtime resident of Dayton, works in the area, she has been to less than a handful of town meetings and no experience as a municipal clerk, and she thinks she should be town clerk.
• Tom VanVeen, I know nothing about him, and I don’t believe I have seen him at any town meetings, and she thinks he should be town treasurer.
So Mrs. Dixon is asking town of Dayton residents to support retired, inexperienced candidates that live on the Chain and haven’t been at many meetings?
Change is not bad, but be careful to elect officials that will fairly represent the entire township, not just those who can afford to live on the Chain.
I would like to encourage the residents of Dayton to join me in voting for Jim Peglow, supervisor; Judy Suhs, clerk; and Brenda Hewitt, treasurer.
These current town officals have been doing a great job and have been longtime residents of Dayton.
Jim, Judy and Brenda all have raised or raising families here in Dayton.
Vote April 7.
