A Message from GOP Chairman Val DiGiorgio
about why you should vote in this year’s local elections on Tuesday, November 5th.
Local elections (township supervisor, city council, school board, judges, etc.) are significant elections because they have a direct impact on your quality of life in your community. Our local elected officials make decisions every day that touch our lives.
You should vote for your School Board Members because:
-Each school board has a budget for the school year that supports thousands of students in our multiple elementary, middle, and high schools.
-Members of the school board also vote to regulate the LARGEST portion of your property taxes.
You should vote for your Township Supervisors because:
-Multiple duties that include construction and maintenance of roads and bridges, zoning and subdivision of land and regulation of building.
-They also oversee construction, highway lighting, signage, designating funds for parks and recreation programs.
-In charge of sewer system maintenance and construction, and other regulations that promote the welfare of the community.
-They too affect a portion of your property taxes as well as other fees like trash removal and sewer.
You should vote for Magisterial District Judge because:
-The judges summarizes cases, presides over civil and landlord cases, as well as criminal cases.
-They are in charge of overseeing preliminary hearings on misdemeanor and felony cases. Other cases include financial reporting- funds owed to the county.
