CURTIS ALLEMAN CANDIDATE FOR EAST PENNSBORO TOWNSHIP COMMISSIONER TO NOT ACCEPT PAY OR INSURANCE IF ELECTED. CHALLENGES OPPONENTS TO DO THE SAME.
Enola, Pa. – Curt Alleman, Candidate for East Pennsboro Township Commissioner announced this morning that if elected he will not accept the pay stipend or the health insurance offered to elected commissioners in East Pennsboro.
With the current administration advising township department leaders that additional cuts need to be made and projects put on hold is not acceptable when these same leaders continue to take the pay stipend and the health insurance that is currently offered to them. “As elected officials we need to lead by example and if elected I plan to do exactly that by refusing to take the pay stipend that is given to the township commissioners and also refuse to take the insurance option”
Mr. Alleman has challenged his opponents to do the same. As a former School Board Director in East Pennsboro Mr. Alleman knows first-hand the amount of time that is needed to hold an elected position and understands the meaning of volunteering and giving back to his community. “This position is more than just attending monthly meetings,” Mr. Alleman said. “If you put forth effort into the position you should be meeting with each of the township departments and learning what each and every position does,” Mr. Alleman continued. “You should also be meeting each employee. As township commissioner we are elected to make decisions for the entire township and it’s our elected duty to understand and have knowledge of these positions and duties when items are brought before us to vote,” Mr Alleman added.
Mr. Alleman concluded by stating “The savings to the township is small but we all need to make sacrifices and this is a start in generating additional revenue that will be needed in the upcoming budget year.”
Here is a great project that is being proposed by one of our Boy Scouts from East Pennsboro Twp.
