Kohut to run for Independence Trustee

Michael Kohut announced he is running for Independence Township trustee on the Republican ticket in the Aug. 3 primary.
‘I am running to help our township do a better job of coordinating with developers and the county in the building of drains and roads so we stop the flooding of land and clogged roads,? Kohut said. ‘We can’t afford to look for ways out of these problems after they happen.?
If he is elected, Kohut has pledged:
? to expand the township’s recycling program and its hours of operation by using flextime employee hours to have the center open late.
? to update the township’s parks so family members of all ages can enjoy them.
? to find private grant dollars to modernize the township’s senior citizen center
? to explore the burying of utility lines along major roads
Kohut has been a township resident for eight years and is retired from General Motors.
