Sherman, candidate for Medina mayor, wants to keep positive momentum for village

Posted 15 March 2024 at 11:32 am


The Village of Medina is thriving, with a great deal of projects in the works:

• We are currently waiting to hear which projects will move forward in the $4.5 million NY Forward Grant, aimed at revitalizing downtown Medina.

• We are anxiously awaiting work to begin on our beautiful canal, thanks to a $10 million investment by the NY Power Authority and Canal Corporation.

• We will be celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the Erie Canal in 2025, where Medina will host its first major Art Triennial.

• The Medina Business Park is shovel-ready to welcome new businesses to Medina.

• Important restorations are needed in the fire station to house the larger fire apparatus in the future.

With that being said, the Village of Medina will be holding its elections on Tuesday, March 19, from 12 p.m. until 9 p.m. in the Senior Citizens Center. It is important that residents come out to vote for candidates with integrity, experience, and dedication to our beautiful village as we continue to move forward.

I have served 10 years on the Planning Board and 10 years on the Village Board, performing the duties of Deputy Mayor this past year. I pride myself in my ability to be objective and thoughtful in my decisions, always keeping the interests of the taxpayers in the forefront.

I worked as a special education teacher in Medina for 31 years, served as President of the Mustang Sports Boosters, have been a member of the Orleans Community Health Foundation, and remain a member of Holy Trinity Parish in Medina, currently serving as a reader at Mass.

I am running for mayor because I truly care about our Village. As a board member, I have worked alongside Mayor Michael Sidari for many years to make Medina a better place to live. There are so many wonderful things happening in our village; yet there is so much work to be done.

I want to keep the momentum going and am willing to dedicate my time for the betterment of the Village of Medina.

I would sincerely appreciate your vote on Tuesday.

Marguerite Sherman
