A congressional candidate is under fire for allegedly using a town social media page to push his campaign.

Grand Island voters and board members accuse Supervisor Nate McMurray of misusing the town's Facebook page to aid his run against Incumbent Chris Collins for the 27th District seat.

Messenger Post's news partner, News10NBC learned that McMurray was not only sharing posts from his campaign Facebook page, but he was allegedly banning those who disagreed with him or his views.

"We were blocked, couldn't see or do anything. We were muted," said resident Karen Demartin. And Karen isn't alone.

McMurray created the page himself when he was first elected calling it "Town of Grand Island, NY." This month, the congressional candidate changed the page, adding "Office of the Supervisor" to the title. McMurray has his own page to promote his personal agenda.

News10NBC is working to get a response from McMurray. When we went to his house on Grand Island, he wasn't home and his campaign declined to comment.

Republican committee member Kristin Ochs says McMurray has been using this town page to promote his personal agenda for a while.

"I don't think that anyone should be banned or blocked by anyone on social media that is in politics. I think we need accessibility to all our politicians" added Ochs.

The page began sharing posts from the political page "Nate McMurray for Congress" in 2017. This year, News10NBC found eight posts shared from McMurray's campaign page.

The criticism sparked the board to take action, ordering the page be taken down. As of Tuesday night, it still stands.

Voters have created a "Blocked by Nate McMurray" page on Facebook, claiming he's also blocked them from his campaign page.
