Marion committees need new faces

May 04, 2017

To the Editor:

Marion needs more new faces on boards and committees. Too often single individuals are standing in on multiple boards and committees, basically because we don’t have enough people signing up for these important rolls.

As an example, in this upcoming vote (May 12) the Planning Board has three seats opening, but only two declared candidates.

This is a problem and it can only be resolved when new faces are added. It is unfair to lean on a few to put in the work, then argue and disagree with the work they do. Apart from being unfair to those that serve, it is also an unhealthy environment. Government works best when more people participate.

I am asking people to write my name in for the open planning board seat - I want to help. And I am reminding everyone I speak to that more are needed to fill open seats. Its time for more new faces in Marion's government.
