Casal to run for council seat


Tonawanda News — Little said Wednesday she enjoys serving on the council and looks forward to running in November, but has serious concerns about her opponent.

“I have heard she has quit the school board twice,” Little said. “I am afraid that if she was under pressure, she would not be able to deliver. It seems like if she doesn’t get her way, that she tends to walk away.” 

Little said she will seek the same endorsements again for this year’s race, and Casal interviewed for the Democratic endorsement Wednesday night. If she does not receive it, Casal said she is prepared to challenge Little in a primary race in September. 

If elected, Casal said she plans to work closely with the district and “come up with ways to share services, which would decrease taxes.” 

“I have no ill will toward Heather, I simply believe I can do a better job,” Casal said. “I will represent the City of Tonawanda residents and will do so proudly and with respect.”
