“I’m running for Mayor because I love Manchester, and I know that we can and must do better to make our city a place where people want to live, work and raise their children. For eight years, under Mayor Gatsas, we’ve seen our city stumble from crisis to crisis. We need a new Mayor with vision and energy. We need to reposition Manchester for a new era of economic vibrancy. We need a Mayor who recognizes that our school system must attract – not repel – young families to our city. We need a Mayor who is committed to safe and walkable streets and safe neighborhoods. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get down to the business and hard work of improving our city.” – Joyce Craig
