In the final debate of the Manchester mayoral race, Mayor Craig continued to demonstrate her record of delivering results for the Queen City. From improving public safety, growing Manchester’s economy, and strengthening our schools, Mayor Craig came out on top in every round of questions. Mayor Craig successfully quantified her accomplishments, and consistently presented reliable facts in the discussion of how she is building a stronger Manchester.
“Mayor Craig has an unrivaled record of standing up for Manchester, and is delivering results,” said McKenzie St. Germain, Mayor Joyce Craig’s campaign manager. “She has had commanding performances in all three debates, outlining successes from her first term as Mayor, while sharing plans for how we can continue to make Manchester stronger. When voters go to the polls next Tuesday, they’ll vote to build on the progress we’ve made in the past two years and re-elect Mayor Craig.”
In her first term, Mayor Craig has:
Improved public safety by increasing community policing and foot patrols, fully-funding body cameras for the first time ever, and approved the addition of 15 new police officers.
Grown Manchester’s economy with over $250 million in new, private investment revived the Rex Theatre in the heart of Manchester’s downtown and overseen the first new development in the Millyard in decades.
Strengthened our schools by increasing funding for Manchester public schools by the largest amount in 14 years in her tax cap compliant budget, secured $11 million in new grants to improve public education and developed new workforce development programs in our high schools with Eversource Academy and Velcro University.
