OTSELIC – David J. Messineo (D) is defending his three-term Supervisor’s seat Tuesday against four-term Otselic Councilmen Stanley E. Davis (R).
Four others are seeking two spots on the Otselic town council.
Messineo says if re-elected, he’ll maintain a record of fiscal responsibility.
“Financially the town is in good shape,” he said, adding that his proposed budget for 2010 reduces the tax levy for the second year in a row. “We don’t spend unnecessarily, and we have the equipment we need. When we do have to purchase new equipment, we try to do so without it being a burden on the taxpayer.”
Messineo touted conservative use of Federal Emergency Management Agency and state highway aid as the reason the town’s been able to make upgrades – most recently an addition to the town highway garage – without any additional cost to its constituents.
Davis said he’s running mainly to give people another candidate to choose from.
