May 16, 2012 - Only one Addison Township official will face any competition in the Aug. 7 primary election and that's Treasurer Dan Alberty.

Lori Fisher is running as a Republican against fellow Republican Alberty, who's held office since 2000.

"My conservative and down-to-earth nature (blends) well (with) the current trend of fiscal responsibility," she said. "I hope to bring a fresh perspective to the board, yet always remain committed to the vision of the township and act in its best interest."

All of the other Addison incumbents are running unopposed including Supervisor Bruce Pearson, Clerk Pauline Bennett and trustees Linda Gierak, John Sutphin, John Boehmer and Ed Brakefield.

All of the other Addison incumbents are running unopposed including Supervisor Bruce Pearson, Clerk Pauline Bennett and trustees Linda Gierak, John Sutphin, John Boehmer and Ed Brakefield.

Although she's currently a licensed real estate agent, Fisher, who possesses a business degree from Walsh College, has years of experience in several different finance-related positions including accounting and project coordinator for an automotive supplier, and manager of a multimillion dollar computer company.

"I have very strong customer service skills and believe I can benefit the residents of Addison Township with my understanding that I serve the people who have elected me," she said. "I take pride in doing a job well, and always with integrity."

In addition to possessing what she described as the "core technical qualifications" to be treasurer, Fisher said she also has a "strong commitment and loyalty to my community."

She previously served three years as PTO president at Leonard Elementary and as president of the Oxford Moms Club. Fisher is currently vice president of the Friends of the Addison Township Public Library.

Alberty hopes township voters will see fit to give him another four years in office.

"I'm running again because we've (the township board) had so much success in the last four years that I would hope to continue it and finish up what we've started," he said.

Looking back, Alberty is extremely proud of the fact the township was able to move, restore and preserve the historic Arnold schoolhouse; acquire approximately 80 acres of additional park land, located at the northeast corner of Leonard and Haven roads; and ink a deal with Verizon for a cell tower (or monopole) in Watershed Preserve Park, the lease revenues from which will be used to help develop and maintain the township's park system.

Ultimately, Alberty, who spent 33 years working as an accountant, auditor and supervisor for the U.S. Department of Defense, hopes voters will once again put their faith and trust in his considerable experience at both the township and federal levels.

"I have proved that I can do the job," he said. "We've built a strong financial position for the township and we want that to continue."
