Vote Farster for supervisor

Published: Saturday, April 6, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

I’ve known Doug Farster for more than 20 years. I supported him 4 years ago when he ran for Dixon Township supervisor because he would be a good manager of the township’s money and services. I was not disappointed.

Doug Farster has implemented in-house accounting procedures that have saved the township money, and at the same time increased the audit review process to make sure the money is spent how it was intended.

He initiated a maintenance contract review to make sure the township is getting the best deal. All this adds up to thousands of dollars in savings for the township. 

He is committed to helping people of the township who need a helping hand, but if they can work, he has a Work Fare program. The Work Fare program requires able-bodied people who need assistance to do meaningful work around the community to continue their assistance payments. 

Once more, I ask you to vote for Doug Farster as Dixon Township supervisor so the citizens of Dixon Township can continue to count on honest and hard-working leadership from their township supervisor.
