Equality Meets Opportunity

Sandra Alercia Vulcano of 531 Philadelphia Road, Southside Easton, Senior Council member, two-term past Council President, and Vice Mayor of Council is announcing her candidacy for re-election to Easton City Council in District Three encompassing the Southside neighborhoods of Easton.  Vulcano has been on City Council since 2002, prior to that she served on The Easton Area School Board as a representative from Region II (Southside and Downtown Easton), and was an Easton Delegate to the Career Institute of Technology’s Operating Board from 1999 to 2002.

 

Vulcano served as President, Vice President, Vice Mayor of Council, and chair of the Planning and Economic Development Committees. She currently sits on the Greater Easton Development Partnership Board which manages our Main Street and Ambassador Programs. The partnership this organization and the city share have brought numerous residents to our city through several development projects who have the expendable income to patronize our restaurants and businesses.  Also, she was a part of the support the city gives to the Ambassador program in assisting our residents to have pride in our City by keeping it clean and safe.

 

She is a member of the Easton Area High School Cass of 1970, a graduate of the Northampton Community College Class of 1972, and has a Bachelor’s Degree In Business Administration from Amstead Univ. She is the widow of Pat Vulcano, Jr. former twenty-year city elected official and member of the Easton School Board. She has one married daughter Michele Vulcano Hall and two grandchildren. Vulcano, her daughter, and grandchildren were born, raised, and schooled in Easton

She currently is a founder and member of the Career Institute of Technology Foundation Board which furnishes scholarships to its students to either further their education or tools to go out into the workforce. She currently sits on the Community Action Board of the Lehigh Valley and understands our City has to welcome all people and make it an affordable place to work, raise a family, and live safely.

 

She was involved in bringing Neston Heights, the CVS, and strip mall development together with the new developments of the Easton Mill and Easton Yards projects to the Southside of Easton. During her term, the Little Easton Field House at Heil Park was erected for city athletes with the partnership of several contractors and funding from the City. She also supported The Farm at the Easton Neighborhood Center, which grows produce for many of our residents, and the new playground and greenhouse at the Boys and Girls Club for our youth to play and learn.

 

She calls herself a “Fiscal Conservative” when it comes to spending the tax dollars of the public.  She believes elected officials have to “Keep a Grip on Government costs” giving all the taxpayers the government they can afford. She understands that our city does not generate its revenue through real estate taxes, therefore, we must be more creative in keeping our taxes flat, namely, by user fees and earned income taxes. The more people and residents we bring to our city to work, eat in our restaurants, shop in our stores, and enjoy our festivals and activities the more money we generate for the city.

 

The legislative and administrative arms of the city are working creatively together to help Easton become a vibrant and exciting destination for all residents to be proud of and where visitors will share the city’s history and resources.  Her goal is to continue to keep “Easton Clean, Safe and Affordable” in all neighborhoods of the city. Easton has a “bright future” ahead when all parts of the government from the Federal, State, County, Mayor, City Council, and staff work together.  Sandra believes Easton residents are the greatest asset to the city followed by its outstanding location.  She is a proud Southside and Easton resident and if elected will continue to dedicate her time to serve the residents of Easton.
