Goad deserves another term

To the Editor:

Few people live facing county or state routes. Most front on local roads.

Local roads may not seem to be as important because they don’t have posted numbers and may not be as wide, but local roads are a critical part of our highway infrastructure. They are probably the first mile when you want to go somewhere and the last mile for emergency vehicles to get to your house.

Greenwood Township Highway Commissioner Don Goad takes his responsibility for local roads seriously. I’ve even seen him on foot inspecting the right-of-way and working with crews. I don’t recall ever hearing of any other elected official leaving his office and getting that involved in the nuts and bolts of his area of responsibility.

Now Don is running for re-election. In my opinion, his dedication to serving his neighbors has earned him another term.
