The Candidates Speak

The Defender invited candidates in contested races to respond to a series of questions aimed at providing information to voters before going to the polls on Tuesday. The following three candidates were inadvertently omitted from our weekend edition.

Candidate Sande Applegate-Staggs for Fiscal Officer in Liberty Twp.

I graduated from West Union High School in 1987. I continued my education at The Ohio State University and graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I have been in the insurance industry for over 20 years. During my career, I have managed small clients to larger employers with over 500 employees. I have helped clients manage their budgets and overhead expenses as well as help them forecast their claims and expenses. I’ve worked with payroll companies and vendors of all sizes.

I have the business experience and customer service background to work with the Township Trustees, the residents of Liberty Township, The State of Ohio and the contractors that the Township works with on a daily basis. I have extensive experience with varies computer software programs that will be an asset to perform the job that is required of the Fiscal Officer. I have also attended the Township meetings for four years so I am well versed in the monthly proceedings that occur at each meeting.

The Fiscal Officer does not have any voting rights in the Township meetings. If elected, I would continue to stay abreast of the current laws and guidelines of the office. I would attend all training seminars and meetings as required to insure that I am doing the best job I can for the citizens of Liberty Township.

Candidate Kent M. Staten for Trustee in Tiffin Twp.

Experience I will bring to the office of Trustee is the ability to rectify any problems in a timely manner. I have managerial experience, budgeting experience, a CDL license, and I know how to work hard and run equipment from our family farm.

What makes me the better candidate: I am loyal, trustworthy, dependable and already know what work needs to be done because I live on and travel Tiffin township roads everyday.

If problems do arise, I will do my best to rectify them.

Candidate Joseph Welage for Fiscal Officer in Franklin Twp.

I have been a member of Franklin Township for all of my adult life. Over the past three years I have had the opportunity to work with the township. I have developed a strong working relationship with all of the trustees, which would benefit me in the duties of this office. I studied Accounting and Business Administration while in college. If elected, I will be transparent in my work, and be willing to share the finances of the township. One thing I would do while in office is to set aside specific times each month for the public to come and see the township’s books and ask questions. This way, the community can see what is going on money-wise, and offer ways for the township to be more financially stable. Ultimately, my goal is to strengthen the community, and being elected as the township’s Fiscal Officer is the best way for me to help achieve this goal. I enjoy working for and being involved with Franklin Township. The community is filled with great people, and I hope you will me the chance to serve them.
