I take exception to Tim Buchanan's letter to the editor on Wednesday, "You judge supervisor's worth."
I was one of many who filled the St. Clair Township office to attend the Oct. 23 trustee meeting to see where my tax money has been going. I was neither tricked into attending nor confused by the proceedings. I just find it sad that a layer of useless government is costing me so much money.
In this day in age most townships are no longer needed. Granted the rural areas not connected by cities and villages still need the services such as road repairs, snow clearing and such. But in areas like ours, which is totally surrounded by overlapping communities, townships are not needed.
Kernan was right. The supervisor's job could be cut in half; in fact the elimination of the job would save us $98,347 a year. If the whole township were absorbed we could save $1,022,567 more of our tax dollars. Like the old saying; "A million here and a million there adds up to real money very quickly."
