Please watch the first 10 minutes of this Town Board meeting

The Town had carefully studied operations at the Senior Center since 2008 before making the difficult decision to move senior programming to the Community Center and lease the building. It was the best solution for seniors and taxpayers alike. Lori Skoog agitated to keep the senior center open and promised seniors that it would remain status quo. She ran her 2015 campaign for Town Board on this promise. This summer, she voted to move senior programming to the Community and to lease the Senior Center to Lifetime Assistance as originally planned in 2014. While going forward seniors and taxpayers will be well-served, the 3 year delay cost the Sweden taxpayers more than $300,000. We do not need more of this type of delayed, costly decision making. We need less of it. On November 7, voter for smart, responsible leadership in Town Government. Vote for Kevin Johnson, Bob Muesebeck, Patty Hayles, Karen Sweeting and Tony Perry.

There are three community events coming up to honor our military and emergency responders. The Sweden Republican Committee encourages residents to participate as a way to thank our brave men and women in uniform.
