New Market Township’s road infrastructure has been failing. This is not arguable, and has not gone unnoticed. What was done 15 YEARS ago will not work any longer. Leaders with a clear vision and ability to execute are needed more now than ever. In the absence of our own planning, Township life is constantly threatened by pressures from City, State and County directives. As a community we need to establish how we move forward, and what steps are taken to ensure the preservation of township life now and in the future.

Vote to preserve Township life.
