Sally Ashe is a candidate for the RIRA Common Council from Southtown.

Sally Ashe is running for a seat on the Roosevelt Island Residents Association Common Council, hoping to represent Southtown. The Daily offers free, unedited space for all Common Council candidates. Following is her statement.

My name is Sally Ashe. I am a new resident of the island having moved from the UK into #465 recently. I would like to become involved in the island community. I am a research technician by trade but I was also politically active in the UK. I was chair of our local Liberal Democrat Party and as such stood as Borough Council candidate for the Liberal Democrats in May this year. I was also prospective parliamentary candidate for a nearby constituency. As an active member I listened to residents’ concerns and tried my best to deal with any issues by contacting local government. These problems could range from potholes in the roads, building homes on the very few green spaces within the town and the need for reliable local transport.

I’m really happy to be living on Roosevelt Island and already feel at home here. I would like to help residents and hope that you will vote for me to represent you as one of the Southtown RIRA Building representatives.
