Each general election, The Lima News provides this section profiling the candidates and issues. The Lima News sent questionnaires to every candidate in Allen, Auglaize, Hardin, Putnam and Van Wert counties for this election section. Candidates had the opportunity to give biographical information and discuss major issues in their races. Candidates also had an option to submit a photograph. Only names and residences identify candidates who did not return a questionnaire. Union Township - TrusteeKelly KnutzenParty: Non-partisanResidence: Fairmount Road, WapakonetaSteven J. SevertParty: Non-partisanResidence: Blank Pike, WapakonetaAge: 49Relevant experience: Currently serving as Union Township trustee; Prior to being elected four years ago, I served for 10 years on the Union Township Zoning Commission.Education: Wapakoneta High School graduateYears living in area: 18Major issues: With the proposed state budget cuts for townships, we will have to stretch the dollars available in our budget as far as possible. Our biggest challenge is to give the residents of this township the best service possible with fewer dollars available. I enjoy serving the residents of Union Township and would certainly strive to maintain the open door policy Iíve always had.Jason ShawParty: Non-partisanResidence: Fairmount Road, Wapakoneta
