Ceretto lays out his priorities, expresses support for police
Assemblyman John Ceretto, R-C-I-Lewiston, began his third term in the state Assembly today. Ceretto took the opportunity to recommit to making Western New York a great place to work and raise a family.
While much progress has been made in the past four years, the assemblyman said there is still room for further economic development and to improve local schools. He believes both of these goals, in addition to improving the state's infrastructure, can be done using the $5 billion surplus the state currently has. These issues are at the top of Ceretto's list of priorities for this year.
"The new year brings new opportunities to make life better for Western New York families," Ceretto said. "I will continue working to bring important economic development projects to Western New York and Niagara Falls to continue the positive momentum we have started. There is also a lot of room to improve our local schools, from fair school aid funding to providing relief from Common Core and unfunded mandates. I am hopeful we can make major progress in these areas during the new year."
Ceretto took an opportunity to stand with fellow members of the Assembly to show support for police officers across New York. He said police risk their lives every day to protect families and communities and deserve recognition for the sacrifice they make. Ceretto keeps these men and women in his prayers and pledges to do everything he can as a lawmaker to support local police.
