New Murray town councilman welcomes constructive discourse on local issues

Posted 17 January 2017 at 7:56 pm


My name is Robert Miller, and on January 10, 2017, I had the distinct honor of being appointed to fill a vacancy on the Town of Murray Town Board. Former Board member Kathy Case is an example of an extraordinary public servant, whose knowledge and dedication will be missed on the Town Board, but appreciated at the Orleans County Board of Elections.

I write this letter as a means of introducing myself to the community. I am recently retired from over 31 years of service with the State Police. I have made the Town of Murray my home for the past 11 years. My wife, Beth, was born and raised in the Village of Holley, and we currently make our home in Fancher.

After years of public service, I felt compelled to seek other opportunities to serve my community. I am a member of the Holley Rotary Club, and currently serve as one of five fire commissioners in the Fancher-Hulberton-Murray Fire District.

Receiving the endorsement of the Murray Republican Committee to be considered for the Town Board, then being appointed by the board, is an honor I take very seriously. It is my understanding that there were several other fine candidates interviewed, and I know to put oneself up for such consideration requires a dedication deserving of praise.

I would ask these individuals, and all residents of the Town of Murray, to continue their involvement in assuring that the Town Board serves the needs and addresses the concerns of all involved.

As this online publication is a popular forum for opinions, suggestions, grievances, and occasionally praise, I appeal to the residents of the Town of Murray to continue with constructive discourse, both in this venue and at Town Board meetings in the future. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you then.
