LEWISTON – Lewiston attorney David Sanchez has announced his candidacy for the Lewiston Town Board.
He said he is seeking a spot on the ballot to fill the seat left vacant when Republican Councilman Michael Marra resigned in July. Marra had three years left on his four year term and no one has been appointed to fill the position.
Sanchez has received the endorsement of the Town of Lewiston Democratic Committee and is seeking the endorsement of the Niagara County Democratic Committee.
He said his greatest concern is the town’s financial condition.
“We must have complete financial transparency in town government,” he said. “I intend to represent the people of Lewiston zealously and closely watch every dollar spent. I truly believe that fiscal stability can come without sacrificing the services that residents have come to expect. It simply takes hard work and discipline.”
Sanchez is an attorney with Amigone, Sanchez and Mattrey, LLP. He is a graduate of Canisius High School, St. Lawrence University and received his law degree from Nova Southwestern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
His wife, the former Cynthia Long, teaches art at Lewiston-Porter High School. The couple has a 10 year-old daughter.
