Ramey calls out McManamon for 'almost abusive' behavior
Randy Ramey, a Republican seeking election as Wayne Township supervisor, has publicly called for citizens to take a stand against what he calls “almost abusive” campaign activities by incumbent Wayne Township Highway Commissioner Martin McManamon.
Although Ramey didn’t name McManamon in a recent statement made on his campaign’s Facebook page, he did make it clear that the he was referring to the Democratic incumbent.
“The current highway commissioner has started campaigning and is targeting households with Republican signs in their yards, particularly those with Gregory Tamburello for Highway Commissioner. He has been pushy, belligerent and almost abusive. If you feel threatened, close the door and call the Sheriff’s Department or the Village police,” read the Facebook post. “Actions like these should not be tolerated by our elected officials. This man has got to go, he has mis-managed the office, had been sued and lost and has ran through 7 secretary’s [sic] in 3 years. If you have reports of this behavior, please let me know on this page. I have had 2 incidents told to me today.”
It’s no secret that Gregory Tamburello, who is campaigning to replace McManamon, is a supporter of Ramey. He publicly extended his wishes for luck in a Facebook post to the Ramey campaign in June 2015. The lawsuit referenced in Ramey's campaign statements was previously reported by the Cook County Record.
Ramey has been interested in politics since he was a boy, according to his statements, and has served as a state representative for Illinois’ 55th District. He has been active in both local and state governments as a member of the Republican Party.
