Writer wants new trustees
Sonny Dupler, Walter Gabriel, and Bill Yates are not good candidates for Walnut Township trustee. Sonny constantly micromanages the fire department, and Gabriel, although he occasionally votes differently, nearly always does what Sonny wants.
These two incumbents dropped a very good recycling program on a whim. Bill Yates is the fire chief. His funding comes from the trustees, so it is a conflict of interest for him to be a trustee. You may think that he will abstain from such matters, but he would still have a huge influence on the other two trustees.
Please elect some new people to these positions.
