What are the top issues facing this district/municipality and how would you work to resolve it and what are key issues facing the district?

Large CAFO wanting to build in our township/county is currently one of the big issues. I have been following the issues and permits. As this position is not a voting position, I will still continue to study the issues and assist the members of the Sylvester Township Board in creating ordinances to protect our land/water resources to the best of our ability to protect these resources for our future generations.

Other issues in our district would be the state of our roads/infrastructure. Again, I will assist the Township Board in researching ways that we can obtain funding for repairs and use our funds in the best interest of our landowners.
