Mayor Sam profile: Frank Sheftel
I am from this community. A LIFE LONG RESIDENT of the and District 2. The schools I went to are in the district. That's what local representation is all about. Someone who has deep roots to this community and wants to make sure we are heard and our needs and the quality of life issues we all face are addressed and represented. It's about getting a return on our investment in our community. I ran during the '02 Valley Independence Movement. I was endorsed by the Daily News at that time as the best candidate to get the job done.
As the owner of the Candy Factory in , a small business operating since 1978, and my years as a property owner and landlord, I know what its like to deal with this city on business
related items. I share the frustration of the red tape and bureaucracy of local government. I want to make that process easier and help bring business back to our city. I want to make sure the services we all deserve and pay for are continued. I want to protect the investment we have all made in this District. My B.R.I.C. plan as described in my brochure would encourage and offer incentives to bring business back to the district. Check out my website at www.Sheftel2009.com for more info in the issues and links to my youtube channel.
Other Candidates are career Politicians and currently elected to other positions. Others only moved into the district to take advantage of our community. A vote for either 2 of the elected ones will trigger another special election to fill their vacant seat at a tremendous cost, as much as 2 million dollars. An expense we can not afford in these hard economic times. They both need to do the jobs they were elected to do. Frank Sheftel has the experience, the knowledge, the know how and the passion to stand up and be the voice of CD2. I was incredibly moved the other day when a voter came up to me and said she had been following my campaign. She liked what she was hearing and said I had her vote, she added " Its been a long time since there was someone I wanted to vote FOR " .Please join her and vote for Frank Sheftel on .
