Wayne Township supervisor candidate responds to opponent's attack
Former state representative Harry "Randy" Ramey took to social media last week to sharply rebuke fellow Republican Art Pierscionek, who had attacked Ramey in the local edition of the Examiner.
"If you get the Examiner you may have read my opponent's blurb in the letters to the editor. He is using personal attacks, misinformation and lack of funds (not many friends apparently) as his campaign instead of the facts," Ramey wrote.
Ramey and Pierscionek are vying for the Wayne Township supervisor position in the Feb. 28 primary. At this point, the Democratic Party doesn't have a candidate for the April election. The Republican primary winner is expected to run unopposed in April.
Ramey had already commented on Facebook regarding Pierscionek's previous attempts to discredit his campaign due to a DUI in 2011. Ramey pleaded guilty to the charges in a plea deal that dropped two additional charges. A first-time offender, his license was suspended for one year, and he was ordered to undergo counseling, perform 100 hours of community service and pay a fine of $1,750.
Ramey previously served as a Wayne Township trustee and state representative for the 55th District. He is an active member of the Wayne Township Republican Organization.
"Our campaign is strong and positive, and will stay that way until February 28," Ramey said on social media. "You can vote by mail to avoid the bad weather as seen in our current mailer or by the examples on this page."
