Two candidates running for Nunda Township Supervisor and Clerk are distributing literature in their quest for office.
Current Township Trustee Lee Jennings is running for Township Supervisor and his wife Susan is running for Township Clerk.
Their palm card can be seen below:
With the exception of John Heisler’s having been removed from the Republican primary ballot, this article tells who is running for what.
The Jennings’ web site contains the following information:
Are we are husband and wife? Yes, for 22 years.
Is this nepotism? No, these are elected positions. We truly believe that we are the right candidates for both positions. However, YOU, the voters, will be making this decision.
Are there any conflicts of interest? Generally speaking, the only time when there would be a conflict of interest is when there is a tied vote between 3 Trustees and the Supervisor regarding filling a vacant Trustee position. The Clerk would then have a tie breaking vote. This is a rare instance that we would try to avoid.
Why are we running for office? We believe that Township Government, when run properly, can be one of the best values in government. Township government is the most intimate level of government, where the funds are spent locally for services and programs that directly assist the taxpayers who are footing the bill.
Unfortunately, during the last several years, Nunda Township has been fraught with in-fighting, backstabbing and questionable accounting and personnel practices. This has resulted in legal fees that far surpass what the budget can handle, leaving the Town Fund immersed in debt.
This is totally unacceptable and has to stop! Now!
We need leaders that care about the residents, not just their own political agendas or egos. We need leaders that will work with residents and other local governmental bodies to make our community a better place to live and work.
We possess these values and are committed to the following goals:
- Fiscal Responsibility – Cutting Costs to Achieve a Balanced Budget
- 100% Transparency – post all Financial information on the Website
- Total Open Door Policy – this is YOUR Township!
