SHOULD YOU BE ELECTED, WHAT ARE THE THREE SPECIF
IC AREAS YOU’D LIKE
TO CHANGE, ADDRESS,IMPROVE OR FURTHER RESEARCH AND HOW SPECIFICALLY WOULD YOU GO ABOUT IT?
1.
 
Eliminate medical benefits for our
“PART
-
TIME”
elected officials and transfer those savings to theSheriff Road Patrols and Fire Department Budgets; a higher priority needs for those tax dollars.
o
 
Full time employees for the Township deserve a good health care plan and my interest in thisissue is to protect their coverage while negating unnecessary waste of taxpayer money byhaving to pay for health care benefits for the
“PART
-
TIME”
elected officials in the Township.
o
 
Elimination of the health care benefit for the
“PART
-
TIME”
elected officials will save theTownship approximately $40,000/year, which in the first year alone can provide for additionalSheriff Deputies patrolling our roads while also allowing for much needed maintenanceimprovements at the Fire Stations on Nye and Bowhall Roads.
 
o
 
Although the Ohio Revised Code establishes an avenue for Township Trustees to receive healthcare coverage, I personally am of the opinion that it is improper for
“PART
-
TIME”
electedofficials to collect
“FULL
-
TIME”
health care benefits
through the Township, their “PART
-
TIME”
employer.
o
 
I have a FIVE STEP PLAN to accomplish this goal with step three already initiated.1.
 
Ask each Township Elected Official to refuse the medical benefit.2.
 
Ask the voters of the Township to ask each Township Elected Official to refuse themedical benefit.3.
 
Contact our elected leaders in Columbus and lobby them to change the ORC to enableflexibility and control to local township governments to make their own decisions inrelation to providing medical benefits to elected officials.4.
 
As your Trustee I will propose a Township Resolution in support of revising the ORC toprovide flexibility and control to restrict medical benefits for elected officials.5.
 
Finally, once the ORC is updated accordingly, as your Painesville Township Trustee I willpropose a final resolution to eliminate medical benefits for elected officials.
o
 
Regardless of how my plan plays out in the future, you can rest assured that I will continue tocollect my health care benefits from my full time employer, thus freeing up those tax dollars forbetter uses within the General Fund.
o
 
I have been campaigning on this issue for months and the overwhelming response from the
residents I’ve spoken with is one of complete
support in my pursuit to remove this wastefulgovernment spending.2.
 
Develop long term plans for both Fire and Road Departments to address capital equipmentreplacement/overhaul, and then budget accordingly for the future.
o
 
Work closely with other Trustees, Township Administrator, Fire Chief and Road DepartmentSupervisor to:1.
 
identify capital equipment replacement/overhaul needs by projecting the life cycles of current assets;2.
 
prioritize replacement of those assets;3.
 
annually, set aside into Reserve Accounts the funding required to ensure that thepurchases are made with CASH ON HAND and thus to obtain best pricing and negatepotential for debt liabilities.3.
 
Establish an
architectural (visual) “identity” for Painesville Township
 
 –
through zoning codes -throughout the commercial districts.
o
 
Implementing a historical Western Reserve District Zoning Code.1.
 
This type of zoning is what is typically experienced in the communities southeast of Cleveland, notably, in Aurora, Twinsburg and Macedonia.2.
 
The historical zoning will require new businesses to design the façade of their buildingswith a historical theme that blends fluently into the visual charm established by thehistoric landmark homes throughout the Township. It will also require existingbusinesses wishing to upgrade their exterior to comply with the historical zoning codes.
