TOWN OF NIAGARA – Richard Sirianni, a veteran local organized labor leader and Niagara-Wheatfield School Board trustee, announced his candidacy for the Niagara Town Board Monday, saying that after recent turnover the town needs “hard-working leaders committed to fixing what’s broken.”
Sirianni has been a union officer for 28 years with the Paper, Allied Industrial, Chemical and Energy Workers Union, or PACE.
“I will focus on long-term road repair and improvement, because our town’s transportation infrastructure is critical, especially as we expand our commercial areas,” Sirianni said. “I will zero in, especially, on the flooding in our communities, and also work to ensure that new development doesn’t result in even more flooding problem. Our residents should feel confident that the town’s infrastructure is working for them and protecting their homes.”
Sirianni, who calls himself a “lifelong conservative Democrat,” is seeking the Democratic, as well as the Republican, Independence, and Conservative lines in November. His candidacy was announced in a news release from the Niagara County GOP.
