I'm writing in Rock on my ballot May 17
To the editor:
This letter is in regard to the May 17 primary election for Guilford Township Supervisor. There are two Republican candidates and no Democrats seeking this position. Back in February, I read incumbent Steve Rock's announcement seeking to serve another term as supervisor. His announcement listed in the newspapers was very informative as to what he has done for the past two terms and will continue to do as a full-time supervisor if re-elected. I think he's done a great job and he's got my vote.
Guilford Township is a wonderful place to live and to raise a family. Our planned developments lay beside open farmlands. The supervisors' snow-removal effort is second to none and Guilford Township has built a very nice Norlo Park for our families to enjoy and exercise. Guilford Township offers the residents a great quality of life. My opinion is that you can't fix something that's not broken, and voters will no longer vote for change unless they know the change they are getting. I am a registered Democrat and plan on writing-in Steve Rock on the Democratic ballot for Guilford Township supervisor.

Bob Thomas is a commissioner who gets things done
To the editor:
I have lived in Greencastle, Pa., for the majority of my life and have always been proud of our community. In April, the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War was to open in our town. As we knew, many visitors would be coming to our community and I noticed how trash had collected along the highways leading to Greencastle.
I immediately thought about the county using inmates to clean highways, so I called Franklin County Commissioner Bob Thomas for help as time was running short. He immediately contacted Dan Hoover at the county probation department. Within days, the job was done — and what a difference. I thank Dan and the probation work crews for a job well done.
We need people like Bob in public office, and next week I will cast my vote to keep him as one of our county commissioners.
A vote for Rock is a vote for a hard worker
To the editor:
I served the Township of Guilford as its solicitor for 44 years, retiring Dec. 31, 2010. I served with many supervisors. The present board of supervisors is very dedicated to being fiscally conservative and used a common-sense approach on all township-related issues. They have a very efficient work force that is small in relation to the size of the township and the 128 miles of road they maintain. In other words, they accomplish a lot with a small number of employees.
I'm very proud to be Guilford Township resident. We have a beautiful township and the supervisors work hard to keep it that way. With farming still being the number one industry in Guilford Township, the supervisors realize the importance of saving our farms. Their zoning ordinance keeps growth planned and orderly by directing development to areas with utilities and adequate road systems. Supervisors that work as a team accomplish more. I think that is why Guilford has been very successful. They have always been aggressive in preparing for the future.
Since becoming a supervisor 11 years ago, Steve Rock has been a great team member. He understands Guilford's vision for the future and works hard every day to achieve it. Please remember to cast your vote for him May 17.
