As a former four-term Little Falls first ward alderman and lifelong Democrat and Little Falls resident, I write this letter of endorsement for Justin Welyczko as he seeks to become the next City of Little Falls mayor. Justin is well-prepared for this position.

I served on the Common Council with Justin from 2016-2020. I found him to be serious-minded, hard-working, and always prepared for Council meetings. His many years of experience on both the Finance Committee and the Urban Renewal Agency Board will serve him well if he becomes our next mayor.

I also served for eight years on the Finance Committee. This committee service requires a working knowledge of all City finances, including departmental budgets and labor contracts. Justin’s work on the Urban Renewal Agency Board has given him an insider’s view of how to apply for and then administer state and federal grants to worthy Little Falls homeowning applicants.

Justin is a young, energetic family man with professional management skills and a true love of Little Falls. His mayoral candidacy is clearly focused on the future well-being of our community and all of our residents.

Justin Welyzko is the right person with the right experience, background, and credentials to be worthy of our support. Experience counts. I hold him in high regard, and I strongly endorse his candidacy for mayor. Thank you.
