Motivated to change

Your vote for Cheryl Gore Follette for county clerk on Aug. 7 will be for ethical leadership and trust. The county clerk is the keeper of all vital records, which includes all court records. The county clerk works closely with the Circuit Court. Cheryl, a working attorney, will benefit the office of county clerk and also the community in which it serves. I know Cheryl to be motivated to make changes necessary to serve the citizens better and more efficiently where needed. Please join me in voting for Cheryl Gore Follette for county clerk Aug. 7.

A true public servant

County Commissioner Rob Hentschel cares about the people he serves. When I returned home from the Army, stationed in Germany and Iraq, Rob did everything he could to help me get situated back in the community. Not only did he personally call and set an appointment for me with the VA, he met me there in person to see that I got everything I needed to take care of my family.

Rob is a true public servant who goes above and beyond the call of duty. Please consider voting for Rob Hentschel as Grand Traverse County Treasurer.

Has a business sense

Peninsula Township residents would be wise to vote for Dave Sanger for treasurer. We need this upgrade in the treasurer position.

Dave served 12 years in the township, 20 years in corporate finance and six years in business ownership.

Sanger brings a business sense to a township government that he understands well: Nine years planning commission developing our first comprehensive master plan; designating M-37 a Scenic Highway; and eight years on the zoning board (seven as chair).

He was selected to chair the Fire Board where he increased services while holding the line on taxes by leveraging grants/other resources.
