    Our townships are the base of where government starts, in our state their is a push to take the money that hard working Fayette County residents pay to the state and let them keep instead being put back into our townships. I believe someone who lives in the Township best manages the needs of the township, not someone in Indianapolis who hasn't a clue of the needs of our residents.

    Local municipalities have more of a bead on the needs of their community; more so than state and especially federal government. A town meeting allows for each resident of the town to show up, provide dialogue and vote on issues.

    Government is inherently inefficient. Local government's job is to provide police and fire protection, and to create an environment that is friendly to business. A solid tax base is the only way to fund the services a municipality can provide.

    Township Government and the services offered are often a last resort for many residents. I am opposed to the elimination of township government as it relates to the office of Township Trustee.

    I believe each township's voters should be allowed to vote about whether or not it wishes to surrender its government. At minimum, the City-County Council should be allowed to vote and then have those Councillors be accountable to the community at large for those votes. In general, I believe in the best, most affordable service for constituents.
