Issues

We believe the citizens of Lower Township need to be more informed so they can provide input to their government. Many residents believe that Lower awards jobs, contracts, and permits unfairly.

The proposed aquatic center is an exciting asset to think about for our community. What features would you like to be included in the facility? How much will it cost on a yearly basis? These are just some of the questions we all need answers to.

Problems that face the nation, such as job opportunities, drug abuse, and limited housing, affect our families here. We need creative solutions to these problems. Solutions will not be easy, but know that we will welcome your ideas and utilize state and federal assistance as best we can.

WE WILL
- Ensure that Lower Township is an affordable place to live and work: We will make sure every decision by your government is based upon how it affects our families' cost of living. We're determined to expand our local economy to create jobs and improve public transportation.
