My decision to run for office was an easy one - I have THE most supportive family you could imagine and I felt it was time to throw my hat into the ring; offer my time to help grow the city, and continue to make Tonawanda a place for families to set down roots. The implementation of Governor Cuomo's Excelsior Scholarships allows qualifying students to get free tuition at the State Colleges. One of the parts of the agreement is that the student must commit to living in NY for 4 years after graduation from college. Tonawanda is an amazing place to fulfill that part of the agreement! With the Intermodal Hub, Bike Path, Focus on Healthy Living, Growth of Main Street businesses and restaurants, low taxes, affordable housing and central location it's the perfect place to reside! Marketing our city in this manner is a prime focus of my campaign.
