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. Monterey Township - TrusteeMike LandinParty: Non-partisanResidence: Road R, Fort JenningsVirgil F.

Fire protection and maintenance of fire equipment is definitely a necessity. Wise spending of township monies is necessary for the operation of township government and is essential for all concerned.
