Republican Cieslak, who served as a registered nurse for more than a decade, said community health and well-being should be the top priority for township supervisors.

“Unfortunately, the current representatives have not responded to the concerns of the people and in some cases have completely ignored them.”
The candidates are against the construction of the Mariner East pipeline.

Back then, Republicans dominated the township supervisory board, but now the situation is reversed. The Democratic Party holds all three seats.
“I believe that a party that monopolizes the municipal committee is not in the best interest of our community and needs a more representative committee,” said the candidate. “My candidacy has the support of Republicans, but I will put the needs of our community first.
“I am not a career politician and I do not accept political contributions. I will work on all aspects to ensure the best future for all residents.
The candidate and her husband immigrated to the United States in 1985.
Cieslak: “In the process, I had the opportunity to wear a lot of hats. I started and helped run a family business, so I appreciate the contribution of business owners to our community and their concerns. I am also fortunate to recently celebrate my 36th wedding anniversary with my husband and five grown children. “
Cieslak thinks she is the best candidate.
“These experiences have shaped me and I am convinced that I must cherish the voice of all residents while keeping my boss at a higher level than ever before. This message touches your heart. So please help me publicize my candidacy. “

Dan is ready.
