Niagara County Legislator Dave Godfrey today announced his bid for re-election in the 10th Legislative District, encompassing Wilson, Cambria and part of Wheatfield. He is the endorsed candidate of the Republican and Conservative committees.
“Today I launch a campaign that will be focused on the issues that really impact the people of our community and on my record in fighting to address those issues,” said Godfrey. “I am humbled by the support I have received from voters in the past and hope they will choose to elect me to another term.”
Godfrey pointed specifically to his efforts to secure funding to improve our shoreline infrastructure and protect property owners after Lake Ontario flooding; battling wind and solar projects across Niagara County that threaten to destroy the character of our communities; working as a board member of the Niagara Military Affairs Council to ensure the future of our airbase; and fighting relentlessly to bring high-speed, reliable, and affordable broadband to every home and business. “I’m proud of these and many other accomplishments including ensuring every single county budget stayed under the state-mandated property tax cap.” Godfrey said.
“We have built a strong foundation in county government that delivers services that people expect while keeping our costs down,” said Godfrey. “I’m especially proud of how this solid foundation has allowed us to navigate through the havoc caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Godfrey said he was disappointed that his opponent was already running a dirty, negative campaign. “At a time when there is simply too much negativity in all of our lives, I will not add to it. It’s not who I am and believe my constituents would expect no less of me. Moreover, anything less would be totally disrespectful of our community.”
Godfrey concluded that he will run on the important issues and opportunities that will bring the highest positive outcome by continuing to work with our State and Federal officials for the good of the people across the entire county.
“As an elected public servant, I have always held the needs and concerns of my constituents as my highest priority. I have been blessed with their continued support and having the time to devote fully to their needs and will continue to do so to the very best of my ability.”
