Antrim Township supervisor John Alleman is seeking re-election.

Two seats on the board of supervisors are up for election this year. Both Alleman and his fellow Supervisor Pat Heraty are on the Republican ballot for the May 16 primary election, while Connie Slye is the only Democratic candidate.

“My name is John Alleman and I am running for re-election for the office of Antrim Township supervisor. I am a lifelong resident of the Greencastle-Antrim community. Early years I worked for my father at J.J. Alleman Electric and have worked for Shifler Electrical for 37 years as estimator, project manager and purchasing agent.

“I have been a volunteer in several segments of the community. Before graduating from Greencastle-Antrim High School I joined the Rescue Hose Co. Fire Department. In that organization I have served as ambulance training officer and as assistant ambulance chief. I served as driver for the fire equipment and for 23 years as the treasurer. I still am an active member serving on the Minstrel committee and helping with the carnival. I coached youth baseball and was treasurer of the State Line youth league for several years. I am a member of the Greencastle Lions Club. As a member of the Lions Club, I have served for the last three Old Home Weeks as the parade chairman. For several years I have been involved in Boy Scouts as committee chairman for Troop 99, as a commissioner for Troop 287/413 and I am the advancement chairman for the Tuscarora District.

“I am presently on the board of supervisors, having severed there on several committees such as the redevelopment of the existing Antrim Township office building, the representative to the Franklin County Emergency Services Alliance and others.

“As you see, I have always been willing to serve my community and hope to continue that as a member of the board of supervisors. I hope to continue working with developers to bring controlled growth to the township. I will continue to work with civic organizations to help keep our community great and try to make it even better.”
