We have good funding for our roads, ( thanks to the township residents support ) the road equipment is up to date and our roads are second to none in the county. I would like to work with the County to improve the county roads in the township. Working together much can happen. / Our township buildings are in good shape although the exterior of the Town Hall needs some attention. This funding comes from the general fund and through wise spending and saving this to could be addressed. / Our Parks I believe need some additional funding and I would look to working with other entities to fund our Parks.

Training & Experience Manager of a multi million dollar Chevrolet parts dept for 44 years Randolph Twp Trustee for 12 years
In Randolph Township,Our infrastructure needs are funded by our general property taxes. In addition,we have a separate road levy,a fire levy and an ems levy. I believe this is sufficient. We are careful to spend every dollar as efficiently as possible to get the most value. We are also constantly looking for grants to help with every department. I do not believe any new levies are required to fund our infrastructure needs.

Training & Experience Trustee for the past 7 years 9 months. On LEPC, EMA, Mental Health Boards, Portage Prepares, Portage Planning, and several other County based committees. My schedule is flexible. Assuring that Randolph & Townships needs are represented and communicated to the County.
Randolph is blessed to have a great group of people that are heavily invested and involved in their community. Because of this we have a community center, senior center, digital sign and many things that have been donated. Funds are tight. We have to be fiscally responsible. When I started as trustee our carry over was significantly less than it is now. We are trying to build all of our funds and maintain what we have. I would like to have a permanent restroom at the Middle School Park and a more up to date playground that meets all the safety requirements. (Would like to achieve this through donations and volunteerism). Many people have commented on what great shape our township roads are. We are going to strive to maintain and insure the safety of our workers. We will be paving the community parking lot soon and are working with the county to make sure some drainage issues are addressed. I love Randolph and am grateful to everyone here that helps make Randolph a better place.
