The following letter was submitted by Kelly Trombly:

I am Kelly Trombly and I am running for Huron Township Supervisor as an Independent.  I have lived in the township for over 23 years.  My husband is a lifelong resident.  I am running because I am deeply passionate about our township and know that I can make a long lasting contribution.  We made a choice to raise our family here and send our children to Huron Schools.  I love this Huron and want all to be an integral part in this Township moving forward but maintaining the quaint, rural home town feel that we all love and embrace in this community.

We need:

-unification of all entities housed within our township, including all three towns (Willow, Waltz and New Boston)

-to keep our money local

-more small business development

-accountability upheld on our roads, sidewalks, train tracks of all three towns

-to use our townships resources such as local trades

-to complete development and use land where substantial amounts of money were spent in the past; Waltz ball field

-improved communication and teamwork across all infrastructures of our township organization

-more family inspired activism

 There has been a decrease in the townships trust and support of its residents.  Reinstating the integrity back into our community and gaining back the trust and support of the residents will be one of the first items on my agenda.  It is time for driven action, expansion and it is time for us to unite.  This can only be done with strong, cooperative, and transparent leadership.
