Has anything really changed but the seats for the Kreher family? The father retired from the fire department where his son already volunteered. The son has already been on the village board. It seems the father being on the township board is nothing more than him changing hats.
I would ask myself, have both men done a good job and served their community? I wouldn't worry too much about a power trip for anyone at this level of government.
With social media and transparency, they can no longer get away with the things they used to. Presswood is probably a good man too. Is he seeking to regain the power he once had as a village board member?
Don't give these people a bigger ego than necessary. They aren't power brokers. There's really nothing to broker and at best, if they hire a friend or relative, they're going to get skewered in the court of public opinion.
In this day and age, I'm just glad we have people who stick their neck out to run for these positions. God knows it's not for the compliments.
