Letters to the Editor

Beware: the funny season approacheth!

Dear Editor,

With the August 7 primary elections right around the corner, even those of us that live in Cannon Township will be facing it. There will be those coming forward saying that Cannon Township is in bad shape and needs new leadership, when in fact in the last year and a half, this board has added $.5 million to the general fund balance, along with ten major accomplishments during that time. With officers on the board like Steve Grimm as supervisor, Bonnie Blackledge as clerk, and Dick Davies as treasurer, we will continue to do just fine.

Given the present state of the U.S. economy with many government agencies having serious financial problems, now is not the time for us to make any major changes.
