Candidate weighs in

By Patricia Ann Speelman -

FORT LORAMIE — Timothy Boerger is one of three, write-in candidates who, along with Matt Hoying, whose name will be on the ballot, hope to be elected to the Fort Loramie Village Council on Tuesday.

The other write-ins are Timothy Siegel and Phil Eilerman.

Boerger responded to questions submitted by the Sidney Daily News too late to be included in an election preview story that ran Thursday.

A Fort Loramie native and Fort Loramie Local Schools graduate, Boerger works as a UPS driver. He has served two, previous, nonconsecutive terms on the council.

“I need to get back on to get things done I couldn’t get done before, ” he said. “I’d like to see the Redskin memorial Park move faster than it has been.”

He thinks the biggest challenge facing the council is the Main Street project.

“That’s our biggest goal,” he said.

About his candidacy, he noted that “I’m not a person who stands back and complains. I’m gong to get in there and do it. I’m good at listening, understanding and giving people what they want.”
