Between now and election day, November 6th, The Daily offers free, unedited space for RIRA Common Council candidates who send in their statements. Here is Sharon Williams, who seeks one of 8 available seats for Southtown.

My name is Sharon Williams. I have served as a representative of #455 and Southtown on the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Common Council since October 2014. I have served as the chairperson of the Hands-Only CPR committee since 2015 where we have now trained over 1,200 Roosevelt Island residents in hands-only CPR for adults and CPR for infants. I am also the co-chair of the RIRA Elections Committee. As a member of the Social, Cultural & Educational Committee I have volunteered at the Cherry Blossom Festival, Egg Hunt and other events.

RIRA does such great work on the Island and I love being a part of it. There is a great need for the types of services and activities that RIRA currently provides, and I hope to continue serving as a member of Common Council in this next term.
