Letter to the Editor
Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Harmar Township supervisor candidate Pat Janoski is a consensus builder and a bridge builder between people. Pat works hard to help people and always has a smile and words of comfort.

Pat dedicated untold hours for 12 years as a director on the Allegheny Valley School Board. She was all about helping the community and serving our children's needs.

During Pat's years on the board, everyone got along and moved the district forward.

I read the Oct. 23 story “Tax collector challenges Harmar supervisor,” with both candidates' thoughts and comments. Pat spoke about getting everyone to work together, apparently because Mike Hillery does not get along with two other supervisors.

In the article, Hillery said he has “worked to bring an end to the constant bickering and fighting.” This is a false campaign statement.

I attended a township meeting in which Hillery intentionally provoked another supervisor into an argument.

Worse, Hillery's majority excludes the other two supervisors from any real decision-making. For example, Hillery refused to put Supervisor Bob Exler on any committee.

Hillery does not realize is that he is the problem, not the solution.

I am voting for Pat Janoski because she is the real deal. We finally have a real opportunity to vote for someone who leads by example.
