2008.10.29 Bob Walton: write-in candidate

Written by David Green.

My name is Robert Walton and I am running as a write-in Republican candidate for Seneca Township treasurer.

To inform all voters, I request you read the process below.

My name will not be printed on the ballot. On the ballot you must write Robert Walton in the blank space under my opponent, Marie Meincke’s name, for treasurer. Then completely fill in the oval next to where you printed Robert Walton. It is important to follow these directions carefully or your vote will not count.

I have lived at my Yankee Road address since 1983. I retired from Metamora Elevator as office/accounting clerk. I am a 1963 graduate of Morenci High School and have an accounting degree from Jackson Business University. I have served as treasurer for a number of organizations. I have served on the Seneca Township Board of Review for 10 years, deputy treasurer for one year and on the Zoning Board for 1-1/2 years.

As treasurer I will maintain a positive relationship with the township board. I will maintain an accurate financial record of the township books and since I am retired I will be able to have flexible hours.

I believe voters should be informed about the candidates, including write-ins. I believe a vote for me is the right vote for Seneca Township treasurer.

Exercise your right to vote.

– Robert Walton

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
