Ziller Ramps Up Write-In Campaign

Dan Ziller, Jr., a write-in campaign for Grafton Township Trustee against four candidates nominated in the first Republican Party primary election, ramped up his campaign Sunday.

First there were yard signs.

Then there was a telephone survey asking whether residents favor a new township hall and whether they want a chance to vote on it in a referendum.

Next, there was a post card asking for a write-in vote.

Now, Tom Halat has bought a half-page ad in the Northwest Herald on his behalf.

It’s split into two parts.

The left hand side is headlined,

Beneath is the following text:

The current Trustees and Supervisor of Grafton Township are not representing the voters. The Trustees have voted to build a new Township Hall in excess of $3.5 million. Their only reasoning is to improve senior transportation and the food pantry. But, in fact, the food pantry is a 501c, a separate non-profit organization. It’s not even a part of Grafton Township any more. But the Trustees are using this in defense. The food pantry is presently only open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1:00 p.m. To 4:00 and that suffices in these difficult times.

For four years their monthly meetings and annual meeting have been held at the Park District with ample room for the public. Now when this great issue has been revealed, they are having the annual meeting at the township garage, with less than adequate space. How childish and inconsiderate the trustees are to the voters to prove a point they need more room.

On April 7th we will elect a new Supervisor, Linda Moore. Let us help her with a trustee we can actually trust, Dan Ziller Jr. He has been monitoring the board’s past activities. Dan has some common sense solutions. Dan Ziller Jr. is a write-in candidate for Grafton Township Trustee. Please write in Dan Ziller Jr. as Trustee for Grafton Township. Also, come to the annual meeting of Grafton Township on April 14th to oppose the spending of $3.5 million for the new township hall.
