More support for Leith for trustee


I have never written a Letter to the Editor until now. I felt compelled to write this letter because I feel the voters in Walnut Township have a very important decision to make in the trustee race.

I support Doug Leith as our next trustee. He is a lifelong resident of our township and will do what is right for all of us. I too have a problem with his opponent having a conflict of interest as a current fire chief.

Plus, I did not like the “smell” of Trustee Horn writing a letter of endorsement to The Beacon weeks prior to knowing who all the candidates were. Mr. Leith will represent the township fairly and is an independent thinker, He will bring badly needed professionalism to this office. As a local business owner, his background will serve this community well.

I ask you to vote for him in this election.

Martha Lewis
