Candidate for Mundy Township board urges vote Aug. 4

Healthcare professionals, first responders, teachers and the people who make our everyday life convenient have found themselves serving in a critical role during what is now a national public health crisis that will define a generation.

As a 20-year-old F-16 Crew Chief in the US Air Force, Sept. 11, 2001 defined my generation. We stood ready to take the fight to the enemy anywhere in the world on that day.

I’m running for Mundy Township Trustee because I believe that our local government must serve a critical role in modernizing and reliably delivering services without ever losing its public purpose.

When the trash isn’t picked up on time or when paying the water bill online comes with a hefty fee, we find it difficult to trust that our government will have the ability to solve unexpected problems in the future.

In my day job, I work for a credit union in a community development role that provides financial solutions for families trying to get ahead in life. The economic fall-out that will follow the COVID- 19 crisis has already taken root and soon our local government will need to find solutions for those affected and the community it serves.

I chose to live in Mundy Township because of its rural feel and the flourishing Hill Road corridor. We really do have the best of both worlds and I’m optimistic that when we emerge from this crisis, we’ll have renewed sense of the critical role we all serve.

I hope I can earn your vote in the August 4th primary. — Greg Dietrich, Candidate for Mundy Township Trustee
