Supervisor Hawkins views his primary responsibility as being available to serve all residents and setting the Gold Standard in Public Service. As the lead elected official, the Supervisor is often the one contacted by the public to resolve problems, handle complaints, and explain township policies and services. As such, you should consider the Supervisor as the public contact for Raisin Charter Township.
The Supervisor has specific responsibilities which are either defined by state statute or by Township Board of Trustees policies. State law mandates that the Supervisor, along with the rest of the Township Board of Trustees, be elected in partisan elections for four-year terms which are consistent with the presidential election cycle.
The Supervisor has the responsibility to create and present the annual budget, approve the agenda for each Township Board of Trustees meeting, and appoint (with board approval) members of the Planning Commission and other Raisin Charter Township boards, committees, and commissions.
