I am the current fiscal officer of Springfield Township and I cannot understand why candidates or their supporters use negative campaign tactics to put down their opponents.
I have seen it happen throughout my eight years as fiscal officer. Negative campaign tactics always start right before the elections to put doubt in the minds of the citizens. It has happened to past incumbents and now it has happened to me. The rumor is that I "flunked" an audit and the state will not release the audit. That rumor is false. All of the past audits are posted on the state auditor's website and are also available at the township building for the public to view.
The township financial books that I have maintained have been audited up to Dec. 31, 2010, with the 2010 audit being "perfect." All past audits have been released by the state auditor and I am very proud of my audits. If you would like to see the audits you may go to the website or call me at 330-716-0754 to obtain a copy. Please do not listen to those negative campaign tactics - know the facts.
