Ramey gains supervisor slot in Wayne Township primary
A lively campaign punctuated by strong competition has paid off for Randy Ramey, who won his party’s nomination for the position of Wayne Township supervisor in the Feb. 28 Republican primary.
“Thank you to the people of Wayne Township who came out and voted in the primary yesterday,” Ramey posted on his Facebook page. “It is my honor to serve you as supervisor. Tom Arends has done an amazing job and I will work hard to follow in his footsteps.”
Ramey stepped up to the plate on the path to his nomination by swinging vigorously at some curve balls lobbed by his opponent, Art Pierscionek, who assailed Ramey in the local edition of the Examiner. Ramey called the tactics “personal,” defending the attempts to derail his campaign by staying positive and ultimately emerging victoriously.
He thanked Wayne Township’s current officials: Supervisor Tom Arends, Assessor Michael Musson, Clerk April Murphy and Trustees Joan Mruk, Brandi Fike Ramundo, Mark Jatczak and William "Bump" Waghorne, before applauding the new slate.
“Congratulations to the winners Brandi Fike Ramundo, Mike Musson, Gregory Tamburello, Nicholas Zito, Daniel Brinkman, Tom Feltes and Jackie Hayden!” Ramey stated via his post. “Looking forward to four years of making Wayne Township the best it can be!”
“It is now imperative that we work together to help Gregory Tamburello get elected to the Highway Commissioners office,” Ramey added, stating that more work lies ahead. “He is a highly qualified individual but it will take a lot of work to defeat the incumbent.”
