On Saturday mornings, I volunteer with my son, Johnathan, and my husband, Darryl, at the Plain City Food Pantry. It is a very rewarding and satisfying experience.

What would you like to accomplish if elected? As my dad, Jack Roby, served as trustee for Canaan Township, I would like to serve my community. I have the time, experience and desire to undertake this challenging position. Bookkeeping and accounting have been my profession since graduating from college, so I may continue with the progress that our current fiscal officer has achieved. Being a life long resident of Canaan Township, I have a genuine interest in the well being of this community.
