John Merhottein For Bethlehem Township Commissioner 4th Ward

Campaign Issues

These are my feelings on issues.  I will always take into account your thoughts and concerns.  I will always represent you and your family. 


  • I will never vote for an unbalanced budget
  • I will review every major expense
  • I will save tax dollars at every chance
  • I will listen to residents who have ideas to save tax dollars

Community Center

  • Review Monthly Revenue vs. Expenses
  • Cut expenses when needed
  • Increase revenue with additional programs
  • Ensure residents needs are being met


Less than half of our residents utilize the Bethlehem Area Library.  We pay over $400,000 a year to be part of the Library.  They must increase services to our township. Below are some of my ideas to increase the services the Library should provide to us.  

  • Supply residents with access to computers at the Community Center or the old municipal building
  • Supply a drop a drop off box for residents at the Municipal Building or Community Center. 
  • Increase the Bookmobile in the township
  • Increase Storytime & other activities for children

We must challenge the library to look at itself, address expenses and think outside the box of what it provides and offers.
