Messages from Gary Wall, Waterford Township Supervisor

Thanking the Frontliners
As the number of cases of COVID-19 continue to increase here on our homefront, I would like to say "thank you" on behalf of all our community to our first responders, all of the physicians, nurses, health care workers, and all other essential workers serving our public needs. I know for a fact that many of these individuals are teaming up and working long hours away from  home and their families to ensure that our safety, health and welfare is as best protected as can be.
