Voters living in Springfield Township will vote for two candidates for Springfield Township Board of Trustees in the Nov. 5 General Election. The race is nonpartisan. The information provided below was submitted by the candidates, with their responses to our questions printed as submitted. Jess Danner Jr. did not respond to our request for information by the stated deadline.

Deborah Davis (incumbent)

Why are you running for trustee?

“To continue the progress we have made toward improving our Township. I love this Township and it’s residents and I am very proud of helping move it forward in such positive ways.”

What would be your top three priorities if you were re-elected? Why?

  1. “Continue to scrutinize the Township expenditures and protect the budget. With the lose or reduction of monies such as the Local Government Funds, Inheritance Tax, and property tax declines it is crucial to monitor all spending. I must continue to oversee all Township Departments for efficiency and safety for employees and residents.
  2. “Continue to improve the resident’s quality of life with activities, parks, trails and entertainment.
  3. “Continue addressing and working for the needs and concerns of our residents. I try to always return phone calls and help in any way I can, within the law.”


Joe DiLauro

Why are you running for trustee?

“I would like to help make Springfield the place that families and businesses want to be a part of. I would like to use a proactive approach to develop features that attract and keep families in the Township.”

What would be your top three priorities if you were elected? Why?

  1. “To continue to develop community features, build on what has been happening in the community, lakefront, and park systems in hopes to attract additional families to the Township.
  2. “Utilize the existing zoning policies to help to make Springfield a more aesthetically pleasing community.
  3. “Encourage economic (commercial) development in order to increase the tax base so to reduce the tax burden on the residential taxpayers.

“I feel that the above three items will help to stimulate growth within our community while remaining fiscally responsible to the taxpayers of Springfield Township. These items would help the community grow and appear as a more favorable place to live and raise a family.”
