Attention residents of Santa Anna Township, our community needs your support and participation! The April 4th local election date is quickly approaching and I, Michelle Castle, want to continue serving as your Township Supervisor. I am an ambitious 28-year-old that was born and raised in Farmer City. I have an educational background in business and currently work full-time managing my family’s local restaurant, The Fish Wagon.
In October 2016, I was unanimously appointed by the Santa Anna Township Board of Trustees to fill the vacant seat of resigning Township Supervisor Betty Schmidt. Over the past six months, I have worked directly with the Board, Highway Commissioner, and Township Assessor to fulfill the responsibilities of this role. Duties of the Township Supervisor include serving as Chairman of the Township Board of Trustees, supervising the General Assistance program, and maintaining records as the Treasurer of all Town funds including Road and Bridge funds.
I am running for office because I believe in the importance of youthful involvement in governments at all levels. As Supervisor l am able to offer an energetic and youthful perspective to Santa Anna Township.
It’s time we start doing things the right way in Illinois and regain our state back to a sustainable condition. This must begin at the local level. Due to all the recent government corruption, I believe transparency is more important today than ever before. Accountability needs to remain a top priority for all levels of government. As Supervisor I have the taxpayers’ best interest in mind and will continue to promote a transparent Township government.
I hope you will all show support for our community on Tuesday, April 4th and vote for me, Michelle Castle, as your Santa Anna Township Supervisor.
