LOCKPORT – Democrat Anita Mullane, who was elected Lockport 2nd Ward alderwoman in a special election last year, has announced she is running for a full term this fall, saying there’s a lot of work for her to do.
“I joined the Council after the deficit financing was sought from New York State and I need more time to help solve the problems we are facing,” Mullane said. “Each of my constituents is important to me. I have personally contacted or visited everyone who has reached out to me with a problem since I took office in January. There is a greater need for transparency and accountability at City Hall and I am committed to providing both. Essential services such as fire and police protection and safe streets and clean water are what our tax dollars should be directed towards. I am concerned about the city’s finances and would like the chance to delve deeper into the situation during a full term.”
Mullane, a lifelong city resident, has been a math teaching assistant for the Lockport City School District for the past 15 years and is a longtime member of the Lockport Education Association Executive Board. Mullane served on the Lockport High School Foundation Board of Directors for six years. She was the recipient of the 2013 New York State United Teachers Local Leadership Award and was a 2014 YWCA of Niagara Women of Distinction nominee.
