The two main issues I will focus on are transparency and engagement. By having the Elgin Township meetings broadcasted and archived over the internet, we can finally show how this part of government works. I plan to engage and listen to people who belong to the Elgin Township to bring forward the issues they care about most at monthly meetings. There should also be a Youth Outreach Committee, so young people can have a hand in understanding and guiding their local government.
