Candidate for Niagara Falls City Council

City Council elections are important. 

The local level is where we, as residents, can have the most impact on the day-to-day lives of ourselves and our neighbors

Voters determine how our tax dollars get spent; and voters determine what takes priority – roads, safety, and education. 

I look forward to starting a conversation with you and your family, to hear about what is most important in your day-to-day lives.

I will hear your voice, I will listen with care, and I will work for you and the issues that are most important to you. We should all be part of the process that builds upon our progress to shape a positive future – Because this is Our Niagara Falls 

If elected, I will work to grow our community wealth, 

To make our city an even better place to live, work, and raise a family. I will draw upon my experience

We are in one of the worst economic downturns we have seen in decades; unemployment will remain an issue as federal and state budget cuts continue to ripple through our local economy. 

We need sustainable jobs. Niagara Falls will also continue to receive lower state and federal revenues for critical services, many of our local organizations that fill in the gaps for so many families will feel the weight of these cuts too

This will impact families. Families that have already experienced substantial losses; some have lost jobs, some have lost homes, some have drained their savings just to get by. 

I personally know how hard it is to live paycheck-to-paycheck, and sometimes making the tough decision between paying the electric bill and buying groceries. I did my fair share of penny pinching and going without.

I know that it will take years for savings accounts to build back up and families to feel stable again. This means that NOW is the time to face the challenges that threaten further damage to our local economy.

Now is an opportunity for new approaches. Now is the time for innovative solutions that will build an even stronger city.

We have much work to do. As a city councilwomen, 

I will work for NF I’ll take a respectful and professional approach to strengthen our community, putting families first. 

While there is talk that the economy is slowly starting to improve, that optimism is returning, and the private sector is starting to add jobs, WHERE.. Not in NF .

we have to make critical investments in order to develop the small gains we’ve seen.

I will work collaboratively to 

• Invest in public safety

• Strengthen our workforce

• Support our unique local businesses

• Attract new business

• Revitalize local investment

• Encourage prosperity for families

I believe these are priorities so we can grow our community wealth. These are key actions that can lead to increased economic stability that supports and promotes Niagara Falls unique human, cultural and historic resources.

WE MUST work as a team and work together to grow our community wealth.

Let’s work together to meet Niagara Falls challenges and celebrate our successes..

It is time to turn the channel as they say.. We need experience people in our city government that will PUT OUR COMMUNITY FIRST

Everyday we wake up is an opportunity to make Niagara Falls a better place in which to live and love. It is time to make Niagara Falls something we are, the way we can look at life , the way we do business and the way we live our lives. Niagara Falls right now needs respect, love, caring, and commitment.  I am stepping up to the plate as a candidate to do just that.

Please give me your vote in our primary this June, and please give me some of your time this election season. 

Thank you!
