GASPER TOWNSHIP — Fiscal officer Anitra Roell swore in Eric White for his 6th term being re-elected by residents as their township trustee.
White reminisced about his 20 years of service, including road and equipment improvements and creation of the Gasper Fire and EMS. He noted, the money saved by taxpayers on their homeowners’ insurance in Lakengren and the rural part of the township basically supports the Gasper Fire and EMS. The Gasper Fire and EMS service has provided a timely response to Gasper residents, saving lives, he said. White also noted, “An administrator from the Cleveland Clinic whose mother was taken by CareFlight from Gasper’s helipad called the station a ‘shining jewel in the middle of nowhere.’
“Things like that make the job worthwhile,” he said.
