Corsaro running for Niagara County Legislature, seeking Fourth District seat

Niagara Gazette — Candace Corsaro has announced her candidacy for the Fourth District seat in the Falls of the Niagara County Legislature.

Corsaro said she is seeking the seat out of a growing concern for our community.

"I was born and raised in the North End of Niagara Falls. My grandparents, Philip and Rose Eodice, owned a small business at the corner of Garden and Highland avenues, while my parents, Clifton and Anna Van Epps, owned a business on Main Street. I, myself, shared their ingenuity and owned several beauty salons on 18th Street, Pierce Avenue, Niagara Avenue, Main Street and Pine Avenue," Corsaro said. "Many of you may remember me from my run for Falls City Council in 2009 that was abruptly terminated due to the loss of my husband. Still others may know me through my work with the Kiwanis, president of the “Weed and Seed” program, or as someone who initiated and designed Norlock Park. I have three wonderful children and six beautiful grandchildren who still reside in Niagara Falls."

Corsaro added, "I am strongly rooted by the memories of my childhood, which motivates me to bring Niagara Falls forward to reach its potential greatness. As your candidate, I plan to be the legislator of ideas and solutions. We need jobs that bring stability for 12 months out of the year so that we can protect our future; work on crime and violence prevention so that we can ensure safety for our families and seniors; and to protect landmarks, like the Community Center, from closing another door. Working towards opportunities for growth, improving the quality of life for our community, and providing refuge for our youths are my goals as your representative."

Corsaro said by having a seat at the table of decision making, she can assure the Fourth District will be heard.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
