The editors of this website recently received an announcement from Andy Zale indicating that he is running for Township Supervisor. Andy is currently the chairperson of the Township’s Parks and Recreation Commission. His announcement letter is shown here:
This year is a major election year. Not only will we be voting for the US President, but our Township Board and Parks and Recreation Commission positions will be on the ballot. As you may recall, the primary election will take place on August 2, 2016. The general election will be November 8, 2016. Please put these dates on your calendar.
The campaign season has begun, and this website will provide information on the candidates as information becomes available. We hope that it will help our citizens make informed decisions in August and November. Any editorial comments will be noted as such.
Why is this important to the citizens of Oakland Township? The primary election is usually the more important election for the local positions since that is when the political parties nominate their candidates. Since our community usually elects the Republican candidates in the general election, the election in August will most likely determine who will sit on our Township Board and Parks Commission. Please make sure you vote on August 2nd.
