Special gathering to address trustee vacancy
Monday at 2:30 pm at Township Hall, a special trustees meeting has been set by Blowers and Trustee Sean Roseman. On the agenda is a discussion of what they’ll do to choose Stevens’ successor. As required by state law, the two remaining trustees choose the new trustee when a township trustee position falls vacant.
Blowers, who was elected to his first term in November 2021, stated that “it will be very tough to replace him.” We haven’t had time to meet to discuss how that process will work, so we can’t yet.
He continued, “Mike was a fair, very level-headed guy. “He contributed a lot of riches in terms of knowledge and expertise. He worked as a trustee for the township for a very long time, which is a loss for the community and the people he helped. He was trustworthy.
A kind individual who genuinely cared for the township and the staff members in the various departments, roads, fire, and police. He was exceedingly kind and genuinely cared about the people with whom he worked.
