“This is the next step in bringing a New Day to Ward C, focused on fighting for our residents who have been left behind. When taxes continue to go up and the conditions of our neighborhoods continue to decline, and residents’ calls for help go unanswered, it is time to bring positive change to Ward C,” Zuppa said in a statement.
“I will be the independent voice that our residents no longer have but deserve. Thank you to everyone who has supported this campaign. A New Day is coming.”
According to the city clerk’s office, Zuppa had enough petitions certified to make the ballot on Friday. This year, Ward C candidates need 233 valid signatures.
Zuppa will challenge incumbent Rich Boggiano, who is running on Mayor Steven Fulop’s ticket, and will also face opposition in fellow first time candidate Kevin Bing in the non-partisan fall contest.
