Steve Burks - NA Township Trustee

Vote for Steve BurksIt has been my privilege to be connected to New Albany, Floyd County for 30 years. My wife Danita and I have been living here since 1997 along with our three sons, Simeon who is married to Brandi, Steven who graduated from New Albany and Seth who attends Floyd Central. I was elected to the Trustee position in 2014 after previously serving on the Floyd County Council. The joy I have in serving this community as an elected official is to take the funds that are provided by the tax payers of Floyd County and use wisdom and discretion to help those who find themselves in situations beyond their control as it pertains to the basic necessities of life. We desire to give people “a hand up” while they take their part of the responsibility to resolve the need they are facing. As an elected official we have two responsibilities, one is to the tax payer, the other to hold accountable those who are applying for assistance. We are here to serve both groups.
