My conversations with citizens indicate that road repairs, parks, greenspace, and controlled development while keeping the allure of a country setting are priorities. The coming attraction of the Leash-Free Dog Park is a resident favorite.
A single trustee can only make progress when at least one other Trustee agrees. This collaborative dependent system requires skills to present ideas and gain concurrence. I excel in that process.
My vision for the future is to create a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in Pierce. In conjunction with the County’s Emergency Management Agency, and local Fire/EMS and Law Enforcement, we will identify and train Pierce Citizen volunteers to assist local professionals when natural and man-made disasters occur. This trained group would be prepared to provide first aid for themselves and other citizens until our local Fire/EMS and law enforcement professionals can respond.
I also believe that we should take the monthly Trustee meeting “on the road” to try to involve more citizens in the township government experience. The first stop could be the Still Meadow community neighborhood to gain more citizen involvement.
