    We need to have diverse perspectives in city hall to insure our councilors have all the information when making decisions on the future of our city.

    Frank has a vision for this city and he has started it by simply giving back to the community. He has great ideas that will move this city forward and get us where we need to be. He is a true leader.

    I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Frank the past couple of years. If you’ve been looking for a voice in our Syracuse government to represent the voice of so many that continue to go unheard, Frank’s experience, generosity, and ambition make him the near perfect candidate for this job.

    Frank knows and does more about cooperative business development, community planning, and environmental design that any elected official we now have in Syracuse.

    Pocas personas de las que conocemos a lo largo de nuestras vidas poseen la cualidad de la perseverancia, esa condición de perseguir y trabajar consistentemente por una causa, por una ideología que con el tiempo define a la persona. Conozco a Frank Cetera desde hace casi tres años y todavía me asombra y admira como usa su tiempo para promover justicia social y hablar en favor de las minorías en nuestra ciudad de Syracuse. Actualmente soy uno de los miembros del Consejo de Directores de la cooperativa de crédito: Cooperative Federal, donde Frank ocupa el puesto de Presidente, en múltiples ocasiones su voz se ha pronunciado en pos de preservar y escalar la misión de la institución: garantizar acceso a oportunidades y productos financieros a personas que no encuentran dichos servicios en las tradicionales instituciones bancarias. Su resolución para pelear en el lado de las minorías, sumado a su determinación en crear una ciudad más segura definen mi posición, yo estoy con él y te pido que tú también lo estés el día de las próximas elecciones.

    Few of the people we have the chance to become acquainted with during our live time possess the attribute of the Perseverance, that condition that make one pursue and work consistently for a cause, for an ideology that as time goes by define that person’s character. I have known Frank Cetera for almost three years now and yet it amaze me and cause admiration how he uses his time to advocate for social justice and speak in favor of minorities groups from our city of Syracuse. I’m currently a member of the Boards of directors for Cooperative Federal Credit Union where Frank act as President, in multiple occasions he has risen his voice to preserve and escalate the Credit Union mission, that of empower a sector of the city that has been neglected by the traditional financial institutions. His resolution to fight for minorities, his determination to build a safer city, mark the boundaries of my side, I’m with him and asking you to be as well next election day.

    While living in Syracuse, I was fortunate to work alongside Frank on many community projects. The projects focused on the improving the health and wellness of the Near Westside. Frank was always considerate of others and patient with his understanding of the community. Rather than pushing the agenda of the priviledged, Frank will impact the Common Council with holistic thought, considering the whole community and it’s future prosperity, And, as Syracuse Councilor at-Large, he will give tireless attention to your concerns. Frank’s person is true and genuine to this endeavor. I endorse Frank’s candidacy!

    This past year I’ve had the pleasure of working with Frank at the Syracuse Cooperative Federal Credit Union. I have seen first hand his passion for local businesses and cooperatives. He will work tirelessly to create economic opportunities for the community. I’m proud to work with Frank and I hope the people of Syracuse will get the chance to work with him as well. I endorse Frank Cetera for Common Council.

    Frank and I have been residents here on the Near Westside for years. Frank is a good listener, respectful, open about his opinion, and thinks outside the box. This is exactly the kind of Common Councilor the city needs right now. We need to take risks and try something new!

    I first met Frank at a poetry workshop in Syracuse. I had two realizations that day. One, that I I’m not at my creative best when I am on the spot and two, Frank’s ability to paint a picture with words is impressive. I met him a second time on set for a John Cusack movie. He was friendly, letting me pet his dog while we were all directed to remain silent for the upcoming scene. The third time we met was carpooling to a silent retreat and then I was afforded the opportunity to understand this man for his intellect, compassion, humor, and thorough engagement with the Syracuse community. For years, he has proven his ability to not only identify problems, but to pursue organic, attainable solutions while rallying others to assist. He is not merely a motivational speaker, he has his hands in the dirt in community gardens. He holds the shovel which clears city sidewalks when others haven’t taken the initiative for safe pedestrian travel. He has his hands on the painted trash containers he has people adopt to reduce litter in the streets and further beautify the area. Board member of multiple non-profits, cooperative housing facilitator, the list extends far beyond my brief knowledge of his full reach. Never before have I ever endorsed another politician. Frank Cetera embodies the grace and strength of a truly wise and good-hearted gentleman. Every act of kindness towards Frank flows exponentially forward into the city and its people. It is vital to do good oneself, but there is power in numbers. Anything I can do to increase awareness and boost his access to resources, I am in.

    I have known Frank for many years and I can wholeheartedly say that Syracuse will be well served with him on the City Council. Frank believes in social justice and equality, is passionate yet also analytical and reasonable, and he believes in Syracuse and its people. He is exactly the kind of person I would want to help guide the city toward a better future.

    For the past few years I’ve worked with Frank on TNT’s Citywide Board, where he’s served as the Board’s Vice Chairperson, Treasurer, Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee, and delegate for the Westside sector. In all of these roles, Frank has consistently been a voice of reason. He has demonstrated his commitment to advancing TNT’s ability to engage in neighborhood planning, participatory budgeting, and transparent, democratic decision-making. He’s proven he cares about the success of the organization, and I have no doubt that he will be similarly committed to the success of Syracuse if he has the opportunity to serve on the Common Council.

    I’m endorsing Frank Cetera because he is exactly what Syracuse needs: fresh thinking, a commitment to sustainability and social justice, and years of direct experience with the challenges facing distressed neighborhoods in our city. I have known Frank for years and have been impressed by his intelligence, his integrity, his eloquence, his courageous willingness to stand up for our neighborhoods, and his passionate commitment to progressive values. Frank has established vibrant, growing farms and gardens to neighborhoods that have long been deprived of green spaces. He has worked with small businesses and is committed to revitalizing Syracuse’s economy. As our nation and our city face new economic, political, and environmental challenges, Frank is exactly the kind of committed, forward-thinking person we need. I think he will bring enormous energy to our Common Council and challenge the other members to start thinking outside the box.

    From the time I’ve met Frank, 6 years ago, I’ve been impressed. The positive improvements in his own Syracuse neighborhood that he has worked on and promoted are striking. From the green renovations of two older homes into beautiful affordable living space to his work in building several community gardens in the city he has bolstered a strong sense of community. His diverse talents include a background in fostering local businesses but you are just as likely to find him recycling bicycles and teaching kids how to repair them. Intelligent, creative, steady, hard working, honest and fair, without prejudice; he is exactly the kind of person we should have representing all our best interests. If you don’t know Frank Cetera, you are missing out. So do yourself a favor, check out his platform, ask him questions and make your vote an educated vote for a man that is not your average politician, a man that will represent all the people of Syracuse.
