“I’m very passionate about ensuring that work gets done in the community,” said Eason. “It’s important that we do what we say we’re going to do, that we do things with respect, and focus on the right things.”
Addressing the newly elected Association officials, Township of Union Committeeman Clifton People, Jr. said, “this is a job, and you’re going to have some work ahead. But improving your community is always hard work. And it will be worth it.”
