Improved roads

To the Editor:

I will vote for Don Kopsell for Nunda Township road commissioner. “Honesty,” “reliability” and “fairness” are just three words of the many I could write that explain my knowledge of his management of Nunda roads. His crew of workers is constantly improving and assisting those of us in this community.

Kopsell has worked for years in bringing our roads up to county standards. Without his constant management, our roads would have no culverts to divert runoff waters, no 60-foot-wide roads, no broad shoulders, dangerously close trees on the road edges. He made our roads safe to travel.

My nephew, Chris Ruhnke, worked for several years on his crew until he died from a motocross accident. He said many times that Kopsell allows no easing back on his workers. He spoke constantly of how hard they all worked and how fair Kopsell was.

I trust that Kopsell manages our tax money allotted to him well.
