The Democratic Party confirms its support and is ready for the elections for its second term in New Rochelle
New Rochelle City Councilwoman District 1 Martha Lopez was confirmed by the Democratic Party to represent them again and seek reelection of her elected position to continue serving the community.
Since her election in 2019, the councilor has carried out a series of works and works to offer a better quality of life to her residents. Above all, the COVID pandemic arrived and it was very difficult for Latino families, small businesses and she was there to support them.
“During the pandemic it has been challenging for all the owners in the city to survive and it is definitely something that is very close to my heart and I want to make sure that all those businesses have financial help to continue,” said Councilwoman Martha López.
As she explained, another of her tasks has been to raise funds for people who want to buy a home for the first time with the help of paying the down payment. “We worked hard on that with Councilwoman Yadira Ramos-Herbert, who is running to be the mayor of New Rochelle and now anyone from New Rochelle can apply for financial aid.”
To ensure the safety of youth and families, he has ensured with his colleagues on the Council that there are programs and that non-profit organizations can help youth and children by offering them a boarding school paid for by the Youth Bureau of New Rochelle, during school holidays.
Councilwoman López explained that “what I want in the next four years is to continue promoting support for small businesses, ensuring funds for it, so that everyone can improve. “So when we work as a team we can all climb up.”
She plans to hold daily arts and culture events at all the parks, as well as hold events for New Rochelle merchants to display and sell their wares. “We bring the entrepreneurs to our parks to sell their art, just like we did at Christmas with all the MWBE entrepreneurs at the Holiday Market,” she explained.
It celebrates 50 years in the country and helping
“I want you to know that you have a voice in the council that will always be pushing for the empowerment of all and I want that together we can be well with our families. The doors are open for whatever you need if I can be of any help. This year I celebrate the 50th anniversary of having migrated to the United States and my father came to the Westend in the area that I now represent, that is to say that it is possible. As immigrants we come with a lot of desire to learn and win and when we go out to vote we make a difference, that is why now we have a Latino voice in the government”, he said.
