Sidonio worthy of re-election as Murray town supervisor

Posted 13 June 2023 at 11:23 am


It’s almost time for the Town of Murray Republican Primary and Joe Sidonio is being challenged by Gerald Rightmyer, a short-time town councilman.

Since becoming Supervisor, Joe, who is an accomplished businessman with a degree in accounting, has demonstrated his ability to manage our town finances better than anyone. That is, after all, the primary responsibility of town supervisor.

As a  Vietnam veteran who served in the U.S. Army’s 23rd Infantry Division, I also appreciate that Joe is a  U.S. Marine Corps veteran and it shows in his unrelenting work ethic.

I know that Joe has spent a lot of time on the Fancher War Memorial and doesn’t get the credit he deserves. He was even criticized by the wife of an elected town employee recently on Facebook.

Several of my friends who are also veterans have commented on their appreciation of Joe’s involvement in this and that we should all support him at election time.

In these trying times with the current state and federal government leadership there is very little patriotism on display anymore and when a patriot like Joe works tirelessly to honor these local veterans it’s really appreciated.

Joe was also the driving force to reduce the town’s 50 percent water loss that cost Murray water customers thousands of dollars a year in water we paid for but didn’t use. If Joe hadn’t been elected this would never have been addressed.

Joe’s opponent has been a town councilman for a short time now. What are his accomplishments? What is his platform? What leadership experience does he have? What qualifies him to run for Murray Town Supervisor?

I’m supporting Joe because of his work ethic and proven track record as twon supervisor, because he is not related to anyone in Murray Town Government, his opposition to corruption within the town government and because he has accomplished everything he promised to do including his  tax cuts all in his first year.

He deserves to be re-elected to continue his drive for a better, more efficient town government.
