Hello community members of the Village of Youngstown. My name is Nicole Quarantillo, and I am seeking reelection for Youngstown village trustee.

I have lived in the village for 15 years with my husband, Greg, and our son, Gregory. I currently serve the community as a member of the Youngstown Volunteer Fire Co., and am past president of the Ladies Auxiliary. My husband, Greg, is also a strong advocate of community service, as he also belongs to the Youngstown Volunteer Fire Co., and is currently first assistant chief. Most recently, our son, Gregory, has also joined the fire company as an Explorer and is also learning the importance of community service.

During my four years as village trustee, I was able to accomplish items I set forth when I originally ran four years ago. When I was elected four years ago, we were in the middle of a pandemic and the village was shut down. One of my first assignments from past Mayor Raleigh Reynolds was to work with the Youngstown Village Library and come up with a plan to help safely open the library open back up. After meeting with the library, its staff, and the code enforcer, we were able to safely open the library back up to our residents. This was a huge win for the village; as many of us remember, schools were shut down and many residents needed the services the library offers!

Another success is the growth of the Recreation Department. Over the past four years, we have added on multiple new programs, including floor hockey, indoor volleyball, and a strong summer program – just to name a few. We are still working on further improvements such as repainting the splash pad and working with other local municipalities to have our softball fields updated.

As a trustee, you must be able to put your own opinions aside to be able to listen and to learn from others. I take to heart what our community members and fellow board members say, and try to do the best for everyone. The people-first mentality is a strength that I possess, and know the Village Board will continue to benefit from. I listen to community members and what they need and, though I may not be able to promise an immediate change, I will listen to each concern and idea for improvements in the village. The board is here to serve the community and put the community’s needs first, and I look forward to helping the village in its continued growth.

If reelected, I will continue to work with the board and the community to create events, expand the recreational department further, and update our beautiful parks to help the growth of young families in the community. There is much to be learned from our current community residents. I want to continue to hear from them and learn about what the community wants and needs and, yes, I know, a grocery store is one of them! My goal is to help the current residents be heard, understood, and work together to accomplish goals. As for our wonderful businesses in the village, I continue to work on building strong relationships between the board and the businesses. I want to learn from them what they need from the village to stay successful. This village has so much to offer our current businesses and new ones.

As trustee, I can promise you that I will continue to lead with my heart and my head. I will make sure I listen to the members of the community and help make changes that will benefit everyone. I will work with anyone who wants to see a change in the village for the good of all, who want to see the continued growth of young new families, and taking care of our current village residents.

I am running with the people-first mentality that has helped me succeed in both my work and personal life. If elected as Youngstown village trustee, I will continue to have that mindset and keep the community’s wants and needs first. On May 21, I encourage all members to get out and vote, and I welcome your vote and look forward to continuing to serve you as Youngstown village trustee.
