Roy Thayer seeks Democratic nod for Bullskin Township supervisor

| Friday, March 29, 2013, 12:36 a.m.

Roy Thayer has lived in Bullskin his entire life. He knows the great people, the interesting places and also the problems. This is why he is running for the Bullskin Township supervisor seat as a Democratic candidate. He wants to know more about the people in this area and the things they would like to see changed.

Thayer graduated from Connellsville Area High School in 1975 and took a job at R.E. Uptegraff Manufacturing in Scottdale, where he worked as a painter, an assembler and in maintenance. He and his wife built their home in Bullskin nearly 30 years ago.

The Thayers have two children, one also residing in Bullskin. Last year, Thayer retired from his career at Uptegraff. But never one to sit around, he is ready to devote his time to making the place he calls home even better. He is ready to work for Bullskin residents.

Thayer is happy to see the success the current supervisors have achieved, especially when it comes to staying on budget and keeping the township out of debt.

Thayer wants township residents to come to him with concerns so he can do everything in his power to make them right.

“There's just one thing I'm asking of you first, and that is to vote for me in the upcoming primary election on May 21. I can only help you. If you elect me. Each one of you counts, and I promise I will prove that to you once I'm in office.”
