Damascus Township

What other issues, if any, do you think are of prime importance to the town, and how would you propose to handle them?

JOE CANFIELD - Running for Town Supervisor (R)

No response received from candidate.

DOLORES KEESLER - Running for Town Supervisor (D)

Other issues are:

1. Financial clarity. Clarify the format of financial reporting.

2. Handbook: “An emergency management coordinator must be appointed and a plan must be prepared to provide reasonable guidelines during an emergency. Emergencies can range from severe storms, including blizzards, to plane crashes or toxic spills along highways or railroads.” Is our township adequately prepared to handle mishaps of a heavy-duty industry that is self-monitoring? I would look into ways to avail our emergency responders of updated training in their field, possibly finding grants and help through state and federal agencies.
