Election 2009: Landis Town Board candidate says she will listen to citizens’ concerns

LANDIS ó Charlene Nolt knows a lot of people. She works in management at Kings Quick Stop #1. Every day she talks to Landis residents.
“Almost all of my customers are Landis citizens. I have heard their concerns and I want to help,” she said.
Nolt, 52, is running for the Landis Town Board.
It’s her first foray into town government, but she has a heart to make a difference.
“I want to help our community come together and to help the schools get supplies they need,” Nolt said.
Nolt saw firsthand the needs of the community when she headed up a community yard sale earlier this month. The idea came from Nolt, who saw people out of work and her local schools in need of supplies. Residents were able to set up booths to sell goods and money from the booth rentals supported the schools. She and other organizers raised $1,000 for the schools in Landis.
Nolt said she wants to have an open-door policy, “so the people of Landis can voice their concerns all the time not just at the meetings.”
If elected, she’d like to set aside a day where she can meet with people to just do nothing but listen and take their concerns back to the board.
It was a few years ago that Nolt thought about running for the town board. She finally decided to go ahead and do it.
She’d like to see the town host more events and activities that would bring the town closer. She is helping the Landis Police, who are planning a town-wide event in August for National Night Out Against Crime.
She has worked at Kings for six years. She’s lived in Landis for eight years.
Nolt is a native of Pennsylvania. She graduated from Penn Manor High School in Millersville, Pa.
Nolt and her husband, Ken, have four children.
Former board member Will Beaver and current aldermen James Furr and Craig Sloop are also running for Landis alderman.
