Norwich EMS is valuable for Brown residents

I am writing in support of the upcoming Issue 20 on the May 6 ballot. This important issue continues the support that Brown Township residents have enjoyed from the Norwich Township Fire Department.

Thanks for supporting Bill's Backers ALT team

We cannot thank the Clintonville community enough for its tremendous support since my ALS diagnosis in 2010.
