Dear Editor and fellow Lima Township Residents:
Hello; my name is Dale Luick, and I am seeking the opportunity to serve you as your next Lima Township Trustee. While some of you may recognize my last name, many of you may not know what I represent or my intentions as Trustee. This letter will hopefully shed some light on these questions.
I will turn the ripe age of 31 on election day, but do not let that fool you on my wisdom and passion for Lima Township. I am a seventh-generation product of this Township and have grown up knowing the value of hard work. I believe this community is built on getting our hands dirty and keeping core family values at the forefront of these challenging times. I am a local business owner and have kept a keen eye on Lima Township politics throughout the years, but I know now is the time to stand up and represent generations to come.
As a Lima Township Trustee, I will be open and always listening to the needs of our community members. Several incumbents are adamant on building a new township hall and I pose questions such as “Do we have the funds?”, “Is it necessary?” and, “Shouldn’t this be something the residents decide on?” I, along with many others, would like the answers to these questions. If given the honor to serve as your Trustee, I will ensure WE get answers.
Like so many residents, I would like to focus our attention on critical infrastructure. It is no secret our roads and bridges need improvements. As Trustee, I will advocate for these improvements and vote to allocate funds accordingly. Also, how is it 2020 and we do not have a reasonable high-speed internet option? This is a necessity as many of our working-class transitions to the “work/school from home” era. I, like you, need high-speed internet to build my business and enhance everyday life.
Lastly, I would like to see Lima Township flourish as a rural community but be open to change. With the fast pace world around us we must adapt and vote in youthful, high energy, ambitious representatives. It would be an honor to be elected, and I hope to keep Lima Township an area generations to come can be proud of.
Best Regards & God Bless,
