Name: Anthony Colian
City of Residence: Salem
Party Affiliation: Republican
Office Desired: Perry Township Trustee
Why should you be elected?
Along with owning property in Perry Township, I bring a fresh set of eyes and ideas to the table. As a successful business owner, I am always faced with different challenges and figuring ways to overcome them. I feel my experience and knowledge in many areas will be an asset to Perry Township. I would like to see Perry Township grow and prosper, as well as the people who live here. I will work hard to find grants to help the community and look for ways to increase revenue. Continue to support the police, fire, and road departments with their ever-changing needs and concerns. I have spent the time to sit and listen in the trustee meetings to feel I have a good understanding of the needs that need to be met. These are the reasons I feel I would make a great Trustee.
What are your top three priorities if elected?
1. Increase Township Revenue with researching and seeking grants available to help the township.
2. Increase Volunteer support for Fire Department
3. With the passage of the CRA tax abatement program, I would look for ways to help township residents take full advantage of the program by providing information along with a punch list of what is required and registered contractors in the township ready to provide their services.
