We at Lake Township must remain neutral in the upcoming August 2, 2022 Primary Election. Since there have been requests as to who the candidates are for Lake Charter Township Supervisor, the best we can do is give you the names of the people that are running for that office and their phone numbers. They are responsible to get their own campaign materials out to voters.
