Letter: Website will improve transparency

To the Editor:

First and foremost, I want to thank the neighbors and the residents in Kendall Township who supported me in running for Kendall Township road commissioner in the April 6 consolidated election. Although I was not elected, I do believe that Vernon Fatima and I were successful in educating our neighbors on the importance of having transparency and accountability, not only in Kendall Township positions but in all taxpayer funded positions.

A forthcoming Kendall Township website will be an improvement that will bring more transparency and interaction between the taxpayers and the township officials. The questions and concerns that many residents had asked me related to future road projects should be accessible on the website.

Thank you again to all the residents in Kendall Township for their support and for their realizing the importance of implementing a Kendall Township website for transparency in the future.
