Incumbent Dave Chrenka announces his candidacy for the position of the Owosso Charter Township trustee for a second term. During his first term, he was on the Building Committee for the new township hall and fire station, representing Owosso Charter Township on the Mid-County Waste Water Treatment Review Board. He was also a member of the Owosso Charter Township Planning Commission who is now ready to codify and present a new set of Owosso Township ordinances to take the township into the future.
Chrenka has also been the Shiawassee County Building Official and Code Enforcement officer for more than twelve years. He is responsible to fourteen townships working with boards, assessors, and taxpayers. He has good working relations with the County Prosecutors, Sheriff Department, Environment Health, Drain Office, Road Commission, and State of Michigan offices.
“My focus is to continue to face any new challenges, working together with the board to promote and protect the interests of Owosso Charter Township taxpayers. We as a board must continue to provide the infrastructure, promote industrial growth along with jobs within the Industrial Park and continue to remain financially solvent. Please consider voting for me when you go to the polls on Aug. 2,” commented Chrenka regarding his run for office.
Chrenka has been married for 28 years to Piper, a nurse at Memorial Healthcare. His son, Mitchell, is a graduate from Ferris State University and his daughter, Mackenzie, is a graduate from Lansing Community College. Chrenka has been a lifelong resident of Shiawassee County in rural Owosso Charter Township since 1979.
