Letter To The Editor
Support for Clerk Pallotta

July 11, 2012

Dear Editor,

Since being appointed as township superintendent in November 2011, I have had the pleasure of working closely with township Clerk Barbara Pallotta. I have come to know Mrs. Pallotta as a dedicated, hard-working official. She puts in long hours in the fulfillment of her duties as clerk. Often, she is the first one to work in the morning and the last one to leave at night. Her personal involvement in all aspects of the clerk responsibilities is evident.

Mrs. Pallotta has had a great deal of experience in the duties of township clerk. She served as deputy clerk for the City of Troy for 10 years and has been the Independence Township clerk since February of 2011. An experienced parliamentarian, Mrs. Pallotta ensures that the Township Board meetings follow proper procedures. Recently, Mrs. Pallotta initiated a re-alignment of the township voting precincts to make it unnecessary to utilize schools as voting places in elections. This enhanced the safety of our children by avoiding giving large crowds of people access to our schools on election days.

Mrs. Pallotta enjoys her role as township clerk. I believe she is the best candidate for the position. I endorse her candidacy for township clerk in 2012.

Bart L. Clark, superintendent

Independence Township
