His priorities include supporting our law enforcement officers and our libraries, as well as smart-growth initiatives that will increase our tax base without negatively affecting our neighborhoods.
Matt is running for Supervisor-at-Large, along with incumbent Murph Wysocki.
Re-elect Murph Wysocki for Tredyffrin Supervisor-At-Large
Murph Wysocki was first elected Tredyffrin Township Supervisor-at-Large in 2013 and is a candidate for reelection in 2017. He and his wife, Lois, have lived in the Deepdale neighborhood of Wayne for 40 years. Lois taught biology and genetics at Radnor High School. Their daughter, Dana, attended T/E schools.
As a member of the Board of Supervisors’ Finance Committee, Murph has helped develop Township budgets that provided for the effective delivery of Township services without raising taxes. He serves as liaison or co-liaison to the Planning Commission, Libraries Board, Historical Commission and Pension Trustees Board.
Murph is working to keep our libraries fiscally and operationally strong.
He is working with local fire companies, other Tredyffrin supervisors, Easttown Supervisors and township management from both townships, on future funding alternatives in a cooperative effort to continue the high level of emergency services.
He helped lead the successful effort to hire additional Tredyffrin police officers. Our public safety is enhanced by the high quality of these services, and as a result, Tredyffrin ranks among the safest communities in Pennsylvania.
As a commercial real estate attorney with 40 years of experience in structuring and closing large transactions, Murph understands project budgets, financing, and what it takes to bring people together and get things done. He retired in 2012, after 25 years as a partner in the Real Estate Department at Saul Ewing LLP.
In his role as Supervisor, Murph has enjoyed immensely the opportunity to work with residents to solve problems and serve their needs. He appreciates Tredyffrin Township’s many strengths. Yet he believes we have not realized our full potential. “Local government should not only be expected to provide sound fiscal management and the effective delivery of basic services. Supervisors must govern with a view towards the future. For us, that includes smart management of our ongoing economic revitalization, which can improve our township’s tax stability, enhance property values, and help make our community an even more attractive place to live and work.”
Murph is a cum laude graduate of University of Pennsylvania Law School. He received his undergraduate degree with the highest distinction from George Washington University.
