 Formal letter of Censure from the Dayton Township

Board of Trustees to Chris Gusek

 Dear Mr. Gusek:

           Establishing and maintaining public confidence is essential to a township board in effectively exercising the mantle of leadership necessary to resolve township challenges. The Institute for Global Ethics has named six universal values that impact on the decisions of public officials. They are: trustworthiness, responsibility, respect, loyalty, compassion, and fairness.
          Acting in your capacity as a deputy clerk you have not upheld these values and therefore we issue this letter to censure your conduct. We ask that in the future you act to uphold these values in carrying out the responsibilities of your position.
Dayton Township Board of Trustees
