Limited government advocates running for reelection
COAST has added to its list of endorsements incumbents Al Peter and Peggy Reis in their bids for re-election to the Anderson Township Board of Trustees. Peter and Reis are facing re-election challenges for the two open seats from three challengers.
Our endorsement is based upon a stellar overall record on taxes and spending by Peter and Reis, and especially on these three positions:
- Because of good stewardship of Township tax resources, the Township was able to weather the cutting of funds for Sheriff’s patrols in the Townships without any reduction in service and without a tax increase.
- When the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center was seeking state funding in 2007, the Anderson Township Board of Trustees blazed a trail in passing a resolution opposing the wasteful spending, and so informing our elected representatives in Columbus.
- These two leaders have stretched Township levy funds such that only a single small supplemental operating levy for safety services was necessary since 2000. The usual 5 year levy was extended to almost 9 years through careful budgeting and spending curbs.
