Beaver County Sheriff Candidate Tony Guy receives endorsement

05/28/2015

Beaver County Sheriff Candidate Tony Guy received the endorsement of Fraternal Order Of Police Lodge #4 at their monthly meeting this evening.  Beaver Valley Lodge #4 represents approximately 300 members, and comprises nearly all of the municipal police offers in Beaver County as well as the rank and file deputies of the Sheriff’s Office.

The endorsement was based on an extensive 10-point questionnaire, which both candidates had responded to during the primary season.  Both candidates were also given an opportunity to speak to the membership.  The Lodge by-laws require a two thirds super majority to endorse a candidate.  The motion to endorse Guy passed by a unanimous vote.

“I’ve spoken to dozens of Beaver County police officers since launching my campaign.  To a man they’ve expressed their concern about the current Sheriff’s office and the need for drastic change.” Guy stated.  “During that time and through this endorsement process they’ve gotten to know my management background and command experience with the Pennsylvania State Police.  This unanimous endorsement indicates that the good men and women of law enforcement in Beaver County recognize that the Sheriff’s Office needs someone with leadership skills rather than a reactionary personality.  I commend the leadership and members of Lodge #4 for their commitment to developing a truly professional law enforcement community and I pledge to live up to my commitment to them to clean up the Sheriff’s Office.”

Anthony (Tony) Guy, candidate for Sheriff of Beaver County, receives endorsement of F.O.P. Lodge 47

On October 6, 2014 at the Good Government Rally in Beaver’s McIntosh Park, Anthony (Tony) Guy, a retired Pennsylvania State Police Sergeant announced his intent to run for the Office of Sheriff of Beaver County.  Guy has recently received the endorsement of F.O.P. Lodge 47 where he had previously served as Secretary.

During his more than 25 years as a member of the Pennsylvania State Police Guy has gained experience in many facets of law enforcement.  He has worked as a patrol Trooper, as a member of the motorcycle unit, and vice unit.  Retired Sgt. Guy was a polygraph examiner for 10 years, a member of the Special Emergency Response Team for 15 years, progressing from point man on an entry team, to team leader, to Assistant SERT West Coordinator.  His last position prior to retirement was as Crime Section Supervisor for Troop B, overseeing numerous facets of investigations and supervising a team of more than 20 investigators.

“I believe that no other candidate has a comparable background that covers such broad areas of law enforcement, and combines it with management experience in a highly respected police organization” Guy stated.  “This experience will serve me well as Beaver County Sheriff and allow me to serve the citizens of Beaver County.”

Tony Guy, a lifetime resident of Beaver County, lives in Hopewell Township with his wife Sylvia (Zoiti) and daughter Marissa.

Chippewa Attorney David J. Lozier has officially announced his campaign for Beaver County District Attorney for 2015.

Chippewa Attorney David J. Lozier has officially announced his campaign for Beaver County District Attorney for 2015.

David J. Lozier brings a reputation of honesty, character and conviction earned during his 27 year career as a trial attorney and advocate for his clients. He has appeared in court and litigated cases in over 20 Counties throughout Western Pennsylvania. The office of District Attorney requires a strong advocate to represent the people of Beaver County. The office of District Attorney requires a person whose integrity is above reproach.

“I am not running from inside the court house,” Lozier said. “Since the current District Attorney is not running for re-election, choosing a new DA from inside his office, or from those who have lived their entire legal careers currying favor in the court house, will not serve the Citizens of Beaver County.”

David J. Lozier will restore a strong code of professional ethics in the office of the District Attorney. There will be no favoritism shown for the friends and relatives of incumbents and donors to elected officials. The Citizens of Beaver County deserve better than repeated hiring of relatives and donors in violation of the anti-nepotism policy; contracts for services going to the same few families in spite of poor past performance and in violation of good business practices.

Attorney David J. Lozier resides in Chippewa Township with his wife of 23 years, Beth, and their two college aged daughters, Sarah and Rebecca.

Press Release – Councilman Trecha Video – Direct Contradiction of RCBC Values

The Republican Committee of Beaver County has issued the following statement in response to a recent article about Economy Councilman Greg Trecha published by the Beaver Countian:

“Although Dr. Trecha may be a registered Republican and may have gotten elected to Economy Council as a Republican, he circulated his own petitions and ran his own campaigns, he has never contacted the Republican Committee, has never sought our endorsement, we never endorsed him, and we have no record of him ever attending any of our functions.  Regarding the events and video described in your article and attributed to him, if true we do not in any way agree with his statements and they are in direct contradiction the principles of the Republican Committee.   We hope that no one paints our committee with his brush as the words he has used do not reflect the many thousands of Republicans in Beaver County.

“Regarding local candidates, we gladly work with voters who chose to run for office.  We encourage them to contact us so we may train them in how to run an election and offer resources for those in office.  We try and encourage good candidates and discourage those who are not ready to run for office or who may not offer good service to their municipality or to Beaver County.  While we have a robust candidate training and support program, we cannot prohibit someone from running  and we cannot be held responsible for a Registered Republican who runs on their own”
