Sidonio has proven to be effective, hard-working leader for Murray

This coming December 28th, I will have lived in the town of Murray 79 years. That is really a long time. I started taking interest in politics when my good friend and neighbor, Reed Beebe, was the zoning offer around 1969 (some 52 years ago).

Mr. Beebe was a very fair person and worked hard to accommodate everybody so they could get into business without becoming a burden to other people in the town.

I remember my cousin Tom DePalma being supervisor, followed by my cousin James Piedimonte. They worked very hard to keep taxes down. I believe we paid around $2.00 per thousand. I also served on the planning board for 24 years from September 1990 to 2014. We all worked very hard for the people in the town, trying to make the town a better place to live for everybody.

A couple years ago, Joe Sidonio made a decision to run for Supervisor, promising to lower taxes and he did (1.6%); get to the bottom of these water leaks and he did and reduced costs to the taxpayer every place that he could, and he did. Many of these savings are not only for one year but many years to come.

We are pleased and I feel blessed to have Joe. First – he is accountable; Number two – he is a successful businessman, and the town is a business and needs a successful businessman at the head.

I have talked to Joe and as soon as he gets the rest of the loose ends repaired, he will go ahead with the other things that would help the town – like help the people to get free of drug and alcohol addictions; work with tourism to being more money in the town to help the businesses and generate money to relieve the tax burden.

I could go on and on with all the things he is thinking of but I would simply like to end saying – in the 52 years of being around politics in the town of Murray, I have never seen a man work so hard to accomplish so much in a year and one half than Mr. Sidonio.

We are blessed to have him. So please get out and vote for him June 22. By the way, if you get a chance, give him a call at the town of Murray buildings and let him know how glad and thankful he is on your team (585-638-6570). He would love to hear from you.

Thank you.
