Hello everyone! It's been a while since I last posted anything but I wanted to bring you an update on some of the things that have happened since I was elected to my position. I think elected officials should attempt to keep their constituents informed, so here is my post from my Facebook page:
"Since January 1st, the Charlestown Trustee Board has met three times. In these three meetings, I can proudly report, that we have been incredibly productive. In our short time together we have elected officers, reviewed the previous office expenditures, and set the annual budget. For quite some time the Trustee 's Office has operated in a deficit. This means that we have been spending money that we just don't have. However, we have structured the budget to get on track to a surplus again. We need to have money. If we get the Trustee's Office into a surplus we can have the resources to further assist the downtrodden in our community, support a "rainy day" fund, and begin to gather interest to make even more.
We are doing great things in the Office! A big thank you to Trustee Kendrick and the rest of the Board for their exhaustive efforts to get us back on track. We promised to make this community better, and we are on the right track!
Never hesitate to stop in to the Office next to the Copper Kettle or call me on my cell at 812-207-0944."
If you have something that you would like to bring up to the board, don't hesitate to contact me.
