UPDATE:   Below is our response to the recent Democrat piece calling us liars about Ron DiMura's past financial history.  

It continues to be a shock to us that the Middlesex Democratic Committee, knowing the Middlesex Republicans

would not make any claim without thorough investigation and concrete proof, continue to demonstrate the total lack of respect and disservice to all the citizens of Middlesex, Republicans and Democrats alike, when they see no shame or remorse when making statements that are clearly not true.  


A link is included below of the actual PILOT agreement for 150 Lincoln Boulevard.


Middlesex needs better leadership than the Democrat team is willing or able to provide.  41 of 45 years is enough.

It's time for a change.

It’s Time to Vote!!!!!

Election Day is November 3rd!

Polls Are Open from 6AM to 8PM



Vote for Robert Sherr for Mayor.

Vote for Nancy Purcell-Holmes and

Melissa Fedosh for Borough Council


"I always believe that ultimately, if people are paying attention, then we get good government and good leadership. And when we get lazy, as a democracy and civically start taking shortcuts, then it results in bad government and politics".


These words are very prophetic as they were said by Barack Obama.  Think about the quote and you can see that his  administration has capitalized on our apathy and now you know how many of the ridiculous and unfair policies coming out of our government get by.  We just take it and don't think there is anything we can do about it.


We need change.  In the federal government, in the statehouse and it starts with our own borough.  Our best weapon to force change is to vote for it.  Tuesday November3rd is our chance to vote for the changes we want to see happen.


Our opponents in Middlesex Borough have tried every tactic they know to keep you from looking at the real truth. They bend, stretch, and ignore the truth  in their carefully worded statements.  It's all for their own benefit. They then cry foul, personal attacks,  when we counter their claims when in fact it was them that started the whole discussion in the first place.  Again this is all a smoke screen to keep us from looking at the truth. The Democrats have hit a new low this cycle as they tried to wait till the last minute to confuse the voters by making a ridiculous statement that Ron DiMura has not had any "recent" bankruptcies.  They were hoping that people will think that the Republicans were lying about his financial past.  Another distraction.

The PILOT program is a tax incentive requested by developers that is put in place to help them defray start-up costs on their project.  Instead of paying taxes on the assessed value of their property they pay a reduced portion based on their revenue.  This is a tax incentive plan for a developer.  It is not the windfall the Democrats want you to believe.


The simple fact is they have had control for 41 of 45 years.  The bad and ugly of where we are is because they put us there.  Who else can it be?  They say they have plans.  What are they waiting for?  Another 40+ years? 


The Republicans have a plan.

Look at the information presented on this website.  There is a wealth of relevant information there.  The choice will be clear.


Vote for Robert Sherr for Mayor.

Vote for Nancy Purcell-Holmes and

Melissa Fedosh for Borough Council


We can make Middlesex better, and we will.



The Middlesex Borough Democrats would want you to believe that our issues regarding Ron DiMura are nothing more than personal attacks.  

Our position is this:   In Middlesex Borough the mayor has virtually unlimited access and control of the Boroughs day to day finances.  Although we did not always agree with the monetary policy of Ron Dobies, his character was never in question.  However, we feel that Ron DiMura has had such a large number of financial issues including multiple bankruptcies, judgments and professional censure against him, several of them very recent, that we feel he cannot be TRUSTED with ANY financial responsibility in Middlesex Borough.

Hello All,

In a predominantly Democratic town the people of Middlesex are getting fed up with the status quo.  Our taxes are high relative to our peer group and our level of services received is not in balance with the amount of resources we as taxpayers put in for them.  We need change in Middlesex and our current regime for the last 30 years has run its course.  The Middlesex Republicans must be agents for positive change.


In Middlesex the margin between victory and defeat is small.  More than ever every vote counts.  We need to stay involved in the actions of government and hold them accountable by our power to vote.


Middlesex borough wants leaders with integrity.  The public trust is something you earn by your actions not given just because of an oath of office.


Middlesex wants action not rhetoric. Crime down, rocks moved,  open space opened,  odors and stenches eliminated, ordinances followed and our Middlesex quality of life to improve.  


We are listening Middlesex and we will try our best.  


As Republicans in Middlesex Borough we make it our mission is to work for the betterment of our town.  Our goal is for Middlesex Borough to have effective and efficient government and to improve the quality of life for all Middlesex residents not just the chosen few.  Please get involved. Our meetings are the 3rd Thursday of every month, 7:30 at the Beechwood firehouse.  Please come.  Your input is appreciated and welcome.


This is our town.  Let our voices be heard.
