Niagara Falls City Councilman Chris Voccio announced he will seek reelection.
“I’ve been a strong taxpayer watchdog,” Voccio said of his first three years on the board. “I’m the only current councilman to vote against the garbage fee, the only councilman to vote against bad budgets, the only councilman to give himself a 10% pay cut on day one, and I voted against contracts that were bad deals for taxpayers.”
Voccio retired in 2017 after a 30-year career in the private sector. A Rhode Island native, he lived in multiple states before settling in Niagara Falls. He holds a BS in business administration from Bryant University in Rhode Island and an MBA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
