In light of recent attacks made on political candidates running in Ferguson Township, I want to be clear that these negative messages go against my personal principles, ideals, and the messaging of my campaign. When I ran, I made a promise to myself that I would not attack any of my fellow candidates and I will continue to stand behind that promise. It has always been my purpose to run a campaign that focuses on the residents of Ferguson Township and the issues that matter to them.
I realize that this is a fully contested and highly competitive election, I get it. However, attacking others is negativity that does not help our community, nor voters, nor my campaign. It makes me sick to see what's going on and I cannot in good conscious remain silent. I stand on principles and ideals taught to me by my family, I will not turn against those principles and ideals, and I will not apologize for standing up for what's right.
When it comes to the issues facing our community, we need to come together and work together. Win or lose, we are all Ferguson Township residents in this election. We are a community of friends and neighbors, we are the people we interact with the most, together we are one.

The Ferguson Township Board of Supervisors has appointed Jeremie twice to serve on the Planning Commission. Today, Jeremie is serving as chair for the second consecutive year after being unanimously elected to the post by the Commission's members.
Here are some of the many accomplishments that Jeremie has been a part of while on the Planning Commission:
Supported Land Development Plans and Applicant Request that have benefited:
- New Job Growth and Economic Development
- Our Children's Daycare Centers and Schools
- Park, Recreation, and Tourism
Modernized the Zoning and Subdivision and Land Development Ordinances
Voted in favor of the Tree Preservation Ordinance
Stood up for real Workforce Housing and Affordability reform
Voting for experience in 2021 matters because it allows the Township to more effectively conduct business and serve the residents. The business and operations of the Township do not pause or stop during the transfer of leadership in January. The new Township Supervisors must be ready to hit the ground running on day one with an understanding of how the Board of Supervisors conducts business and functions, what unfinished business the previous Board of Supervisors has been working on, and the knowledge to make informed decisions.

Township Supervisors hold a fiduciary duty to their constituents to efficiently use taxpayer funds to operation Township departments and services. Jeremie believes we should never take taxpayer funds for granted and should be cognizant that we are offering the best value to our residents for the taxes they pay.
Jeremie will support initiatives that improve efficiency in Township operations and create financial oversight, advising, and transparency. He believes, the Township should look beyond their own funding for alternative funding sources such as grants. In addition, he believes we should strengthen our relationships with intermunicipal partners who can share in the cost of common expenditures for a lower rate vs. contracting independently.
