I have known Svante for several years now, and I have always known him to be a person of integrity who works hard, and cares about people and our wonderful city. I have had many discussions with him and always find that he’s done his homework and is conscientious and thoughtful about the important issues before Ithaca. I believe he will work hard for all of us and listen to citizens to find the balance that most Ithacans seek between necessary change and development and the quality of life that residents want. More than any candidate, he has the ability to address the great concerns of our residents.
In his tenure on council, Svante has proven himself to be a thoughtful, honest, and intelligent leader who is more than capable of implementing a progressive vision for the city. His work with our youth and personal background have proven that he has the compassion that it takes to lead a diverse community, and his experience with management in local non-profits shows that he has the skills it takes to navigate Ithaca through these trying times.
I hope you join me in supporting him on November 8th.
New York State Assembly,
