Crowded field vies for three Niagara Falls City Council seats


Niagara Gazette — Charles Walker, 54, is a community outreach manager at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. He and his wife Linda have two children and one grandchild. Walker holds a degree from Niagara Falls High School and has taken courses at Bryant and Stratton College.

Walker, who is seeking his fifth term on the council, holds one of three Democratic lines on the general election ballot, coming in second in the September primary.

On why he’s running:

“I believe the city is moving in the right direction and is ready for investment and there are developers ready to jump in. So I want to do all I can to see it through, a lot of things being proposed and done are things I talked about back in 1999 and 2000.”

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.
