All Politics Are Local
Local politics is a place where neighbors can come together and solve the problems they’re facing. While on the national level, we see divisiveness and anger, local politics should be a place where all community members are welcomed and accepted.
Transparency is the cornerstone of a healthy community. Transparency does not stop with the bare minimum of disclosure required by law. Instead it requires disclosing all information of public business and presenting it in a way that all residents understand. Residents should feel welcome to ask questions and expect accountability of their elected officials.
Fiscal responsibility does not stop with only managing township resources. It extents to ensuring that to the extent possible, the elected officials and township employees are able, they help to ensure the long term financial stability of the township in the deals it makes, specifically with utility aggrigation.
