Linda J. O’Brien for Russell Township trustee
O’Brien said she aims to create transparency in the township’s leadership with meetings at convenient times for residents and minutes available within three working days.
O’Brien said the township needs to live within its means now that state money has diminished and the township should work to eliminate some unnecessary assets to generate revenue and tighten the township’s belt.
She also would look to heighten residents awareness of federal and state government initiatives that she believes aim to transform rural America by taking money from suburbs to use for urban initiatives.
“I believe Russell needs more business sense and less political nonsense,” she said. “I have successfully managed corporate budgets greater than the township’s annual budget, and I have helped my clients achieve greater results with less resources.”
