Mayor Simonetti Made a Difference

Sue Simonetti has devoted much of her life to making Wellsburg a better place, including nearly 12 years as the town’s mayor. Now, she is stepping aside to “let somebody with new ideas step in.”

Simonetti revealed last week she will not seek a new term as mayor in next year’s municipal election.

Her tenure as mayor has been a very challenging time for Wellsburg — the entire Ohio Valley, for that matter. But in part because of Simonetti’s efforts, the community has coped with difficulty and managed progress.

Simonetti has made a difference, and for that, residents of Wellsburg owe her their gratitude.
