Dear Editor,

The three Lawrence Township Supervisors are going to vote in the near future to allow or not allow the citizens of the Township of Lawrence and Borough of Clearfield to have a voice in the future consolidation of their communities.

We have a dedicated group of citizens that have already donated many hours to conduct preliminary research just to see if this could be a feasible and financially positive move for the citizens of the community. If the supervisors vote not to allow this issue to appear on the ballot this May, we may not see another positive minded group like this for a generation or more!

Please encourage the Lawrence Township Supervisors to vote yes and allow this issue to appear on the ballot and let we the voters and taxpayers have a voice in the future of our community.

Gerry Hatcher

Former Clearfield County Commissioner
