Mike O’Barto states “The Board of Supervisors of the 21st Century must have vision. We need to see beyond what we can actually see. We have to be more creative and we need to work harder than we ever have to preserve our Volunteer Fire Departments and our quality of life in Unity Township. Recreation for our youth and Senior Citizens must be improved upon. With our newly formed Recreation Board and the commitment of the people of Unity Township, great things will happen. Together we can make Unity Township a better place to live, work, and raise a family.”
