Township coverage is important

Published: Friday, April 18, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

I must say a loud thank you to SVM reporter David Giuliani for his coverage of the ongoing debacle in Coloma Township.

This problem would be worsening and people would not know about it if he didn’t continue to do his job. Every taxpayer should be fired up about the goings on with the Coloma Township office.

I applaud Trustee Neal as I feel he truly wants to find out what is happening and get it corrected. It appears as if Supervisor Burke is either unable to perform her duties or does not want to.

Any person on the Coloma Township board who took the oath to fulfill the duties and is not doing so should resign immediately. If not, then it is up to us to make sure they are not re-elected.

And to the citizens of Coloma Township, mark your calendars for the next meeting. We all need to pack the place because it is our money and our duty to make sure the board is doing its job.
