The cutoff date for submitting petitions by individuals who are interested in running for office is rapidly approaching. April 19th is the cutoff date. As of today, I am aware of three candidates who have submitted their signed petitions for Supervisor. As I stated in a previous post, there are two editors for this website- myself and Jim Foulkrod. We have differences of opinion regarding who is the best candidate for the Supervisor position. However, we both agree that current Supervisor Gonser is not the best person for the position based on his actions and performance over the past 3+ years.
I have put together a comparison chart that shows the qualities I would like to see in our next Supervisor. I included my perspective on each candidate in those areas. You may have other criteria & perspectives that you feel will influence your voting decision this summer.
Here is the comparison chart (click on image to enlarge):

Why is this important to the citizens of Oakland Township? As many of you know, we have had a very turbulent 3+ years since Supervisor Gonser came to office. We need to make sure we select a Supervisor that will prevent our citizens, and surrounding communities, from questioning:
“What in the world is going on in Oakland Township?”
A thoughtful analysis of the candidates and your informed decision, will help make sure that happens.
From my perspective, Mike Bailey is the right choice for that position!
