Dear Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the Rush Township Board of Supervisors and all the people involved in winning the case between the Board of Supervisors and Mr.William Boyer, concerning a dispute over a township street behind Ryan Avenue.

Mr Boyer is an auditor elected by the people of the township. He was put in office to do what is best for the township and the people. However, he had a personal agenda which cost the township $8,586.16 in legal costs, plus the time of the township's secretary in preparing the documents for court.

We should hope and trust that when someone is elected to a public office that they will do a good job for their community and not for personal gain. This lawsuit cost the township thousands of dollars. I would hope the people never forget! Once again, thanks to the Rush Township Board of Supervisors for doing the right thing for the majority of the people.

John H. Schickram

past Rush Twp. Supervisor
