Background:Sebastian "Sam" Previti has called Washington Twp home for 15 years. He and his wife, Silvana, have two young children and they enjoy spending time in and around the township as much as they can. Sam is an active member of several community charities and events including Holy Family Church, Holy Family Regional School, and the Lodge Figli Della Sicilia. He holds a bachelors degree in finance and a masters in business administration, both from Wayne State University. Sam works as a controller for TI Automotive, one of the largest automotive Tier I Suppliers in the nation. Family and community are both very important to Sam. He credits both his parents, in-laws, and immediate family for teaching him what really matters: Be a good father, a loyal husband, kind neighbor, and help those around you. Sam's experience in finance and community relations will make him a good fit working with the Washington Township Board to get things done for families.
Why I Ran For Township Trustee:
"My wife and I have called Washington Twp home and feel this is the best place to raise our young family. Public service has been a dream of mine ever since I sat in civics class back in high school. I believe people with experience in the private sector, like the rest of the existing board, make for very effective and efficient public servants. Together I believe we will accomplish great things for the families of Washington Township."
What I Plan to Achieve:
"I ran for office on several important issues and I intend to look into all of those. Three issues I plan to achieve are:
I plan to look into increasing sidewalks for the safety of our children and citizens. I would like to know what the cost, feasibility, and overall safety concerns there are in any roads and subdivisions.
I will be a strong advocate against drilling and exploration for oil and natural gas. I feel that despite "x" amount of feet from residential areas, exploration is not beneficial to the health of residents.
Recently our community voted NO on Proposal 1 as a way to repair and maintain our roads. I will work with local, county, state, and federal leaders to bring in as much funding as possible to assist with our roads."
