Message from Mayor Rosas

City of Dunkirk, Mayor Wilfred Rosas said, “Once again, Governor Cuomo is looking out for the middle class families. His continued efforts to hold spending growth at a 2% level, keep the 2% property tax cap on municipalities and fund capital plans for business districts will ensure the overall economic growth for the City of Dunkirk and all of western New York. The Governor has also looked ahead to 2020 and has made a commitment to continue much needed infrastructure projects throughout western New York and the City of Dunkirk has been a beneficiary of his commitment in this area. It was through the Bridge New York funds that we were able to reconstruct the Howard Street Bridge here in Dunkirk providing the residents of that area with fire protection for the first time in over ten years. I am very pleased with the Governor’s concerns and promise toward continuing this type of infrastructure funding. As the Mayor of a city on the brink of economic recovery, I applaud Governor Cuomo for his dedication and determination in looking out for all New Yorkers not just for today, but for our future.”

Mayor Rosas Honors the Lady Marauder Bowling Team while recognizing Women’s History Month

As we recognize “Women’s History Month” Mayor Rosas encourages each and every resident to stand proud and to honor and recognize all of our women in our City, but especially this fine group of young women, led by Coach Donna M. Kubera, Isabella Begier, Summer Clark, Olivia Corbett, Hannah Ellman, Mariah Glowniak, Rachel Glowniak, Whitney Hice, Makayla Pasierb, and Tayler Skelly. 

“These young women are true champions.” Mayor Rosas said.  “Our young women of today are the future leaders of tomorrow.  This month has been set aside to honor all women, and I applaud those who, through their tireless energy, their courage and their determination have worked to make a difference in every walk of life.  The theme of the 2019 Women’s History Month says it best as it declares this month to be one of  ‘Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence and honors women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society.”  He said.

“We don’t often think of our sports programs as being visionary, but in the spirit of the 1972 Title IX of the Education Amendments to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, young girls and young women are now included in all educational and athletic programs.  Today I am proud to stand with the young women of Dunkirk High School.  The Lady Marauder Bowling Team has worked hard and has brought home to this City the Division 2 NYSPHSAA Girls Bowling State Championship.  As such, as Mayor of the City of Dunkirk, I do hereby declare this month of Women’s History Month as “Lady Marauder Bowling Champion Month” in the City of Dunkirk.”
