Kyttle vs. Rusinko in N’moreland
BY ROBERT L. BAKER
Wyoming County Press Examiner
Clinton Kyttle said he would've liked to have become supervisor following Gary Story's death in 2008, and even submitted an application.
But, he wasn't given an opportunity to say what he could do for the township to the other supervisors.
"It seemed they had their minds made up even though they asked for applications," Kyttle said of the appointment of Nicholas Rusinko.
The long-time resident of the township said he didn't have anything against Rusinko, but was concerned about the fact that his mother was secretary and during the past year, his father had been assisting with township roadwork.
He said he also has concerns about gas drilling activity that's coming to the area, but doesn't want to do anything to stop progress.
Rusinko said he likewise wanted to move forward with progress and felt the gas drillers will likely be good neighbors.
He said his goal as supervisor is to work hard for the township and keep expenses down so taxes don't have to be raised.
He has raised a large family in the township, and wants it to be a place where other young families also will want to live.
Kyttle said he has attended township meetings over recent years and admits that they sometimes get a little noisy.
"People just want their voices heard," Kyttle said. "And we'd like to think that actions of our supervisors will follow our concerns. I want to be a supervisor who will do that."
