Morenci Silver Creek Bridge Walk

I was happy to participate in the 28th annual Morenci Silver Creek Bridge Walk. We can and we will change the reputation of county government here in Lenawee County . Those that represent us must fulfill their oaths of office in an ethical and transparent manner. It is simply unacceptable that the representative of people of Tecumseh and Tecumseh Township on the County Commission would knowingly place himself in the position being seen to line his own pockets at the taxpayers expense. Despite my opponent's, many protests, ethical rules and guidelines exist so that this appearance can be avoided. Consistently voting on the budget for the courts where his law firm conducts its principal business and voting on the purchase of property by the county for a project from which one hopes to profit are serious ethical lapses. The people can't see into an elected representatives heart and determine what motivates them. Avoiding the appearance of impropriety helps to ensure in the minds of the public that the motive is to consistently and properly and to the best of one's ability represent the interests of the people represented. It a simple idea and one which is worth defending. Join me in this fight on with your vote in the upcoming November 8th general election.
