A Muse man has announced his bid for a seat on the Cecil Township Board of Supervisors.
Frank Egizio, of Muse, said he is running because the "public needs to be more adequately represented," according to his website.
He noted that he is a life-long Cecil resident—a community he said he loves.
"The thought of ever leaving this township has never entered my mind. After all, it is the number one place in Pennsylvania to raise a family," Egizio wrote on his campaign website. "Through the years, I have built character and a work ethic that nobody can take from me today, which I am very proud of."
He was a paving foreman for 25 years, and received his NECEPT—or Northeast Center for Excellence in Pavement Technology—Certification from Penn State University's main campus.
"During the past 25 years, I have had the opportunity to meet and work alongside many local government officials. I have witnessed the good and the bad and how issues can be resolved. These experiences have helped me in understanding how all departments of local government should be run," Egizio stated on his website. "One of life's principles that I've always believed in is the quality of your preparation determines the quality of your performance. I believe I am prepared to serve and represent the residents of Cecil Township. Also, I will see to it that your tax dollars are spent wisely and not misused."
"The formula that I was taught for success is to always work hard, and be honest with yourself and everyone at all times. These are the values I live by and with your support I will not betray the trust you have bestowed upon me with your vote."
