Hello, I am Jen Schultz, and I am running for the 1st District seat on the Syracuse Common Council. Being a lifelong member of the Syracuse community has prepared and inspired me to take on this challenge. The 1st District has been my home for 39 years. I am proud to have been raised here and proud to call it home with my husband, daughters, and dogs.
Syracuse faces many challenges today, including poverty, public safety, and city services in need of improvement, which impact the quality of life of our residents. The pandemic has further complicated these issues, so, now, more than ever, we need positive and effective change. I love our city and value the opportunity to work with city government and the community to make Syracuse an even better place to live, work and raise a family. I will work in the best interest of all people to remove barriers and encourage teamwork and unity in order to improve and resolve these issues. I have always been active in my community and what I have learned is that we are better when we work together and, a strong and connected community is the key to success! I would be honored to have your support.
