About John

Why I am running for Mantua Township Trustee.

I have chosen to run for Mantua Township Trustee so as to make a positive impact on our great community. I intend to utilize all of my business skills, acquired knowledge, and real life experiences to maintain and preserve a way of life that I have come to know and love. At the same time I will diligently work alongside the community and Township officials alike, to maintain and secure a brighter future for Mantua Township.

If elected Trustee, I will use all of my resources and business skills to promote and deliver a quality product to everyone in the Township, without regard of social standing or affiliations, so together we can promote a firm footing for the future of the community.

Voices and concerns from people in our community

  • Stop spending our hard earned money without accountability. Although the Center School project may be a good ideal, we need a plan and cost analysis on Township Projects, so everyone can know exactly how much it will cost. Let us folks decide.

  • People are complaining about the roads, ditches and culverts being in poor condition. We need a good, effective and fair course of action to provide this basic service equally.

  • Township Meetings should be run in an orderly and professional manner and be open and easily attended by all.

  • Trustees have to be accountable to us and make themselves available whenever people feel the need to ask questions. Give us quick and reasonable access to important information.

  • Township folks want equal opportunity to participate in local government and committees. We need to make it fair for all to be a part of the process.
