In a letter to the editor, West New York United commissioner candidate Myrli Sanchez says that the town needs change and the credentials of her team should speak for themselves.Â
As a concerned citizen of West New York who happens to be a businesswoman, a wife, and a mother of 3 daughters, I care deeply about our community.
I want our town to be a safe, clean, and prosperous place to raise a family and make a living. That is why I am running for commissioner in the upcoming May election on the WEST NEW YORK UNITED slate, along with incumbent Count Wiley and our other running mates.
West New York needs positive change. And it needs it now. Our taxes are too high, and our residents are being denied access to basic city services to which they are entitled. Our children and our seniors both lack adequate programs to help them navigate through life. Programs that people in other cities enjoy and take for granted.
No doubt about it! Much needs to be done in West New York. But much can be accomplished with right leadership. And much good will be accomplished by voting for the WEST NEW YORK UNITED slate of 5 candidates on COLUMN â€œDâ€.
West New York needs new ideas and new blood in Town Hall. Our local government has been mismanaged for too long, and we need qualified experienced people to help us get back on the right track.
I have a proven record of helping others and increasing productivity in the private sector. I know I can make a difference in the public sector on the Board of Commissioners.
Ever since I graduated college with a BA in both Business Administration and Business Management, I have used my professional skills to help numerous businesses and organizations excel. In fact, I served for 10 years as the Chief Financial Officer â€“ CFO – of Global Performance Group LLC.
Since leaving Global, I have run my own business is crisis management, serving as a consultant to both small business owners and non-profit organizations alike.
As a life coach, I am well-known among my peers for finding and implementing new solutions for old complex problems. I will bring this innovative skill set to government and put it to work for the people of West New York.
My parents taught me the value of a good education and I want the youth of West New York to have a school system second to none. My mother was born in Puerto Rico and is currently a public school teacher in New Jerseyâ€™s largest city. My father, Dr. Francisco Dillon, is originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador, and retired as the Director of University Hospital in Newark.
So, I am well aware of the opportunities a first-rate education provides. Our townâ€™s students – and your children – deserve no less. They deserve the best.
I also know the value of living a life of faith. For the past 15 years I have been happily married to Rafael Sanchez, Jr., the pastor of House of Worship Ministries Church, right here in town.
Together, we are raising our 3 daughters in a loving home and – like any family – share your concerns for the happiness and well-being of our children.
That is why I want West New York to be a community that cares, and a place with pride. I can no longer just sit on the side-lines and complain. Itâ€™s time to get involved. Now is the time to get in the game and fight for what is right.
That is why I decided to join the WEST NEW YORK UNITED team of Commissioner Count Wiley, Carlos Betancourt, Thomas Leung, and Hector Hernandez. Each of these individuals are upstanding and qualified people who will bring decades of proved experience to town government.
Each has his own area of expertise that will serve you and your family well â€“ be it law enforcement, financial management, or civil engineering.
Join us in helping to turn WNY around. Lets make our town a better place to live for all. Your future and the future of your family depends on it. On Election Day â€“ May 12, Vote to put People Before Politics and Competence before Cronyism.
ELECT THE WEST NEW YORK UNITED team from top to bottom. Vote Column â€œDâ€ all the way and watch good things happen.
