NORTH TONAWANDA - City of North Tonawanda Mayor Rob Ortt announced he will seek a second term as Mayor of the City of North Tonawanda.

Ortt stated, “When I ran for Mayor in 2009, it was my intent to do three things: reduce the size of city government while increasing its efficiency, rebuild our city’s aging streets and infrastructure, and restore accountability and pride in our city and city government. There is no doubt in my mind that we have achieved all three of these things. Still, there is more work that needs to be done, and I will ask the good people of North Tonawanda for their confidence and support for a second term as their Mayor.”

“I have always looked at this job as a four-year position. I never thought of it in terms of getting re-elected. I wanted to tackle the challenges that I felt were facing our City and have a positive impact. During my first term, we have seen an unprecedented period of economic expansion and growth over the past three years. From new business coming in, to existing companies that are expanding operations, our pro-growth, pro-business policies have yielded positive results,” added Ortt.

“Even after four strong years, though, there are still challenges that face our city. We will continue to look at ways to decrease the cost of city government by sharing services and better utilizing taxpayer dollars. We must address our declining housing stock, as well as continue to repair our streets and infrastructure. I look forward to addressing these issues and others working alongside our common council for the betterment of all of our residents.”
