Donna Braun today announced her candidacy for North Tonawanda Clerk-Treasurer, a position she was appointed to last August by the City Council.  Prior the appointment, Braun had served seven years as Second Ward Alderwoman on the City Council.

“The Clerk-Treasurer position is really about running the nuts and bolts of the city’s finances, along with providing residents with the services offered through the Clerk’s office.” said Braun.  “My private sector experience managing bank accounts, reconciling payments, overseeing vendor contracts and so on, plus my time spent on the City Council interacting with all facets of city government, makes me uniquely qualified for this position.

Braun said the city’s finances are in moderately good shape, considering the economic consequences of the pandemic and said some of the issues that have been raised are more about improving the processes rather than change the course.

“The rebirth of North Tonawanda has probably been one of the best kept secrets in all of Western New York and we have a solid foundation to continue growing,” said Braun.  “But we do need to tighten up some of our internal management processes.”

Beyond elective office, Braun as long been active in the North Tonawanda community.  She is a civic member of Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Erie-Niagara Sunrise Exchange Club, a member and inductee of North Tonawanda Football Hall of Fame for her work as treasurer, president of Third Warders’ Ladies Auxiliary, served on the Fundraising Committee for the YWCA, member of the Niagara County Clerks Association and supporting member of Gratwick Hose Firehall.

Braun has resided in the city for 30 years, with her husband Ken, where they raised their 3 children. “I am proud to say that I also have 5 grandsons, and my children have chosen to live here in our great city to raise them.”  Braun said.

“I view elected office as an extension of my long-time commitment to serving our great community,” said Braun.  “I look forward to running a campaign based on my qualifications and experience.”
