"The Ela First candidates stands out as refreshing opposites."
Wednesday, April 3
I recently received a call from Wayne Wnek, the Ela Tax Reform Party candidates for Assessor. While I was already inclined to support John Barrington, this call cemented my position. At the start, Wnek repeated the talking point that his slate has been pushing since day one: that they would refund $2 million of the $2.2 million surplus to Ela Township taxpayers. Of course that sounds great…who wouldn’t want a tax refund? But, as in all things, the devil is in the details. So I asked him what we would do if we were faced with an unexpected expenditure, like a weather disaster or another economic downtown. His response: they would borrow to cover the expenditures. So the Ela Tax Reform Party wants to clean out the township’s reserves and …
Foglia explains YMCA, Ela Township partnership.
Wednesday, April 3
To The Editor: I am writing to voice my support for Ela First in the upcoming election and to share my perspective on some misinformation about Ela Township and the Foglia YMCA. Together, they have done great work for the community, and I was upset to hear candidates for Ela Township office attacking this work. In 2000, Ela Township made a $1.5 million contribution to a YMCA Capital Campaign. Through this deal, Ela Township agreed to a 25-year lease for a 2,500 square foot Senior Center and 1,000 square foot Youth Center. This agreement served the people of Ela Township well for the last decade. However, in 2011, both the YMCA and Ela Township had outgrown their space. As a result, Ela Township and the YMCA negotiated a buyout of the …
Tax Reform Party challenges Ela First.
Wednesday, April 3
Submitted by the Ela Tax Reform Party. The Ela Tax Reform Party has announced a challenge to the Ela Township board to reduce its excessive reserves and return a significant amount of tax dollars to property owners. The challenge is based on moves by the incumbent board to adopt some of the ideas of the Tax Reform Party prior to the election. Tax abatement and increasing services to all residents have been part of the Tax Reform Party platform for months. “Two months ago, the Tax Reform Party announced that, if elected, we would abate up to $2 million in property taxes to residents,“ said Barbara Evans, supervisor candidate with the Tax Reform Party. “People were responding so well to our message of tax abatement that two weeks ago…
