Rob Parrish Running for Nunda Township Road Commissioner — 7 Comments

  1. Mr. Parrish’s goals and credentials are what’s needed in township government.

    Does he have a twin that lives in Algonquin Township?

    P.S. The Parrish company has been a very reputable company for generations.

    What better references could we have!

  2. I wish this guy had a clone. Alg. Twp. needs someone like this.

    Readers, GET OUT AND VOTE.

    I believe this election is in Feb.

    This blog will keep you posted.

    Township elections are very important and have a serious effect on our lives.

    The voter turnout is terrible.

    Do research.

    Townships cost us BIG BUCKS and no one is watching.
    My motto: if you do not vote, do not complain.

  3. Anonymous said the Parrish company has been “a very reputable company.” He should have mentioned that Parrish Paving has gone out of business and Rob now works for Geske & Sons.

  4. Don’t make road district changes during this economic downturn. We get excellent service from the road district and should keep the people whose record of service we know and can rely on.

  5. Just listened to the videos done the candidates’ meeting for Nunda road commissioner.

    Parris is great!

    That is, he’s great with unnuendo, allusion to wrondoing that didn’t happen, and he certainly Knows-It-All regarding purchasing and maintenance that is being done better right now than would be under his plan.

    For instance, wasing and waxing after every use rather than just washing off salt.

    I’d love to go over his company records regarding purchase/maintenance/sale of his vehicles.

    Lesperance, regarding purchase of equipment, mentioned getting in touch with people he knows to get the best deal, but didn’t he and Parrish both specifically talk about the issue of open bids?

    Guess when the pressure’s on they can do without that.

    Don’t think Lesperance is paying residential property tax in Nunda, if someone knows he is, please clarify that issue.

    Elect Kopsell, keep Nunda roads safe and retain the knowledge of a proven and experienced road commissioner.

  6. LagTime, their answers definitely proved they had no idea what they were talking about. Crystal Springs Road?

    That’s Bull Valley Mr. Parrish!

    He wants to reduce taxes and spend more wisely but waste it outside Nunda Township.

    He really should listen to himself talk before he speaks.

    They were all about OSHA regulations and drug tests.

    It’s already being done, since it’s the law.

    In order to have a CDL, you have to pass a drug test.

    Iron Mike wouldn’t know how to regulate OSHA. He got a man buried alive back in 1991!
