Paul Muhly, a two-term member of the Accomack County Board of Supervisors representing District 4, has filed for re-election in the Nov. 7 election.
“I have a record that voters may consider as I ask for their vote,” he said.
Muhly said he worked to bring the new Eastern Shore Regional Library and Heritage Center to Parksley.
He served on the project’s steering committee with two other members. The committee was tasked with the responsibility of the review and approval of the final design for the library project.
“I think it turned out just fine. Be your own judge and please pay the new library a visit,” he said.
Muhly said he worked with the Virginia Department of Transportation in securing a contract to repair the collapsing 14 culverts on the Saxis causeway, State Route 695.
“I voted for the long overdue increase in salaries for our county firemedics. I spoke up and supported the personal property tax relief ordinance for active volunteer fire company members,” he said.
For three years, Muhly said he encouraged Accomack County Public Schools to include a high school emergency medical technician program in its curriculum.
Muhly said the program started in January. “Two students have successfully completed the course this year and hopefully more will take this elective in the fall,” he said.
Muhly said he has “long supported” a clean up of the Whitesville area next to Parksley. “A partnership between the county and the gallant ladies from the Davis Center was worked out to remove derelict housing and cleanup of overgrown lots,” he said.
“Real progress has been made and is continuing. This is an excellent example of government and private enterprise working together to improve a neighborhood.”
“During orientation when first elected, we were told that although we represented a designated district, we were responsible for the welfare and good governance of the entire county,” he said. “I always try and remember that goal.”
“I would like to thank the voters of District 4 for their support during my first two terms and respectfully ask for their votes again on election day, Nov. 7.”
