It has been an honor to serve as trustee for Hanover Township. While this wasn't an easy decision, I have decided not to seek re-election in 2013.

I've done my best to make sure your taxpayer dollars are spent wisely while also ensuring the programs our residents rely upon are kept intact. In my capacity as trustee, I have served on the Mental Health Board, Committee on Youth, the Finance Committee and co-chaired the Environmental Stewards Workgroup and we've made great progress.

I have enjoyed working with so many of our local leaders on a wide range of issue impacting our community and have been motivated by the passion and dedication of our directors and staff. I'm proud of environmental policy I drafted for the board and am happy to know our township is headed down the right path for being good stewards of the environment.

I'm also proud of the work I have accomplished related to youth at-risk and after school programs, as well as job fairs where businesses searching for employees were connected with Hanover Township residents. I'm honored to know workforce development remains a top priority for the township as we see leaders at the state and federal level equally committed to this goal.

Over the next few years, I will be focusing on my business and continuing efforts to fill the current workforce gap in manufacturing, as well as building a strong foundation for the next generation by increasing

opportunities for young girls and other underrepresented populations in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.

I wish to thank my supporters, elected officials, friends and family who supported me, especially the residents of Hanover Township who entrusted me to serve them the last five and half years.

Thank you again for allowing me the privilege to serve as your trustee.

Sandra Westlund-Deenihan
