The “Commit to Cannon” team, candidates for Cannon Township Board, consists of (l–r) Annamarie Bauer, Jim Pearson, Dennis Smith, Rob McBrien, Tim Nelson, Ken Carozza and Jim Alles.

A team of seven cannon township residents recently announced its candidacy for Cannon Township Board.

The team consists of Dennis Smith (supervisor), Jim Alles (treasurer), Ken Carozza (clerk), and four running for trustee: Rob McBrien, Tim Nelson, Annamarie Bauer and Jim Pearson.

“Running with a campaign pledge called ‘Commit to Cannon,’ our team will bring fiscal responsibility, personal accountability, transparency and integrity to our township matters,” said Tim Nelson, a pastor at Ada Bible Church. “We care deeply about preserving Cannon Township as a rural community and believe in the importance of creating timely budgets, providing good governance by having all meetings open, and not making any deals behind closed doors.”

“We are unhappy with the current direction that Cannon Township is being led and are seeking a change. Our team has a strong history of trusted leadership in this community and look forward to the opportunity to serve,” said Rob McBrien, current Cannon Township trustee.

McBrien pointed out that the team has 56 years of combined zoning, township or planning commission experience.

Standing in together in Cannon Township, this team will begin campaigning immediately under the slogan “Commit to Cannon.”
