Guy seeking township board seat

By Jennifer Peryam - jperyam@h-ponline.com

Tim Guy is seeking to be elected to the Huntington Township Board because, he said, Huntington Township needs solid leadership moving forward.

The township will experience a transition to a new administration. He has served as Huntington Township trustee for 16 years and is not seeking re-election.

“I have decided not to seek re-election as trustee because I have served four terms(16 years), and that’s enough time for anyone to hold an elected office,”Guy said.

He said it is time for him to move on to something else and let someone else assume leadership of the township.

If elected to the board, he said he will be in a position to utilize his knowledge and experience to help guide the township, but in a different capacity.

There are three positions available on the board with candidates John Baker, Tammy Kline, Dane Owens and John Paff also running.

“The knowledge and experience that I have acquired in four terms as trustee would make me a valuable resource for the board,” Guy said.

He said he has extensive experience with government budgets and appropriations, and has a good working relationship with the State Board of Accounts and the Department of Local Government Finance.

“My goal has always been low-cost, responsible and efficient government. Our record at Huntington Township stands for itself,” Guy said.

He said the taxpayers of Huntington Township deserve a common sense, conservative approach to their local government.

“If elected to the township board, I would want to see that guiding philosophy continued. I would also want to see the initiatives begun in recent years continued and built upon, particularly the Township Fire Department and the Lake Clare Fitness Park,” Guy said.

Plans are currently underway to expand the Fitness Park and construct a trail.

“I would want to see those initiatives completed and perhaps built upon,” Guy said.
