Canton board members mark promotions of 3 officers

Three public safety recognitions at a meeting of the Canton Township Board of Trustees last month packed the meeting room with family and friends.
Newly promoted Sgt. Andrew Colthurst's promotion was announced first.
Colthurst joined the Canton Police Department in 2007, and was joined by parents Eric and Susan Colthurst.

New Lt. Michael Andes, who was hired as a Canton police officer in 2007 and became a sergeant in 2016, was also recognized. Andes was joined by his wife, Melissa, son, Landon, and daughter, Preslee, as well as in-laws Arlene and Bob Johnson.
New Lt. Edward Johnson, also recognized, was hired as a Canton officer in 2002 and promoted to sergeant in 2014. He was joined by his wife, Kathleen, and daughters Meredith, Hadley and Violet.
The three officers were recognized by Trustee John Anthony, a retired FBI special agent, and took their oaths of office from Canton Clerk Michael Siegrist.
