Timothy Toth has announced that he is a candidate for the 4th Ward Common Council in the City of Tonawanda.

“As the endorsed Republican candidate, I can assure the residents of the 4th ward, that I will be their eyes, ears and voice of the community,” Toth, 48, said in a news release. “We have locations in the 4th ward that have the potential to undergo major changes, over the next several years.”

Toth is a lifelong city resident and recently retired from the City of Tonawanda Police Department after 24 years.

He graduated from the Niagara County Law Enforcement Academy in 1990 and worked as a D.A.R.E. Officer, School Resource Officer, Juvenile Aide Detective, Media Relations Officer, Gang Intelligence Officer and a certified General Topics Instructor.

He has also served on the Tonawanda Youth Board, Tonawanda City School District SAVE committee, WNY Regional Anti-Graffiti Task Force and is a past president of the Frontier Police Club.

Toth and his wife, Camille, have been married for 21 years and have two daughters.

Toth has been endorsed by the Republican, Independent and Working Families parties, as well as the Tonawanda Uniformed Professional Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 859.

The city’s Democratic Committee has endorsed Roger Puchalski, editor and publisher of the Am-Pol Eagle, for the office.
