Spidle the public servant

To the Editor:

President Kennedy’s quote: “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

I view the position of Marengo Township highway commissioner as a servant of the public. Some see it as a job. I view it as an availability to serve.

This position requires the responsibility and accountability to every resident of the township. People are the important aspect of the task. Highway commissioners will come and go. There was one before the person in office now and there will be one when he is gone. We need to elect one who will do the job, respecting the community they serve.  

For more information, see me on Facebook or www.votefordonspidle.com.

I am looking forward to serving as highway commissioner for the next term. 

If it is not good for the people of Marengo Township, then it is not good.
