Voting

Our township is divided into five separate wards, each represented by an elected official from that ward. With the recent fall election, there have been some changes to the board, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with each of the board members listed below. All of these individuals bring their own unique skills and expertise to the board, and all of them have a strong desire to serve the residents of the township. It is a privilege to serve with each of them.
