DOU­GLASS (MONT.) » Two can­di­dates are seek­ing a town­ship su­per­vi­sor seat with two years left on its term in the Nov. 7 elec­tion.

The seat, once held by for­mer po­lice chief Fred Ziegler, who re­signed un­der charges of theft, is now held by John Stasik Jr., a Demo­crat and for­mer su­per­vi­sor who was ap­pointed by the board to fill the seat un­til this elec­tion.

He is op­posed by Repub­li­can Joshua Z. Stouch.

Su­per v isor A nthony Kuk­lin­ski is un­op­posed in his re­elec­tion bid for an­other six-year term.

In his can­di­date re­sponse, Stouch, 35, wrote that he de­cided to run be­cause “I be­lieve it is time for some new ideas and fresh ways of think­ing in Dou­glass Town­ship. We need a vi­sion for the fu­ture and good ideas to tackle some of the press­ing is­sues be­ing faced by our cur­rent times.”

Stouch is in his sec­ond term as an elected Con­sta­ble of Dou­glass Town­ship. He was ap­pointed mem­ber of plan­ning agency, vice chair of emer­gency ser­vices board, for­mer vice chair of open space and ae­cre­ation board, for­mer vice pres­i­dent of the Sas­samansville Fire Com­pany, and trustee and fire­fighter of New Hanover Fire Res­cue.

If elected, Stouch wrote his top pri­or­ity would be “as­sure fis­cal re­spon­si­bil­ity and con­tinue to main­tain a high level of ser­vice in the emer­gency ser­vices and pub­lic works within the town­ship.”

Stasik did not pro­vide a re­sponse to Dig­i­tal First Me­dia’s can­di­date ques­tion­naire.
