YONKERS, NY – March 22, 2019 — Jefferson Terrance Tenants Association President, and community leader Tasha Diaz announced her candidacy for the now open 3rd City Council seat in Yonkers.
“I am so excited to announce that I am running for City Council District 3,” said Diaz. “I was born in Yonkers, I have lived here all my life. Not only that, I raised my kids here, and I believe firmly in our duty as a community to take an active part in our government.”
Tasha Diaz is well known for her position as the Jefferson Terrace Tenants’ Association President but also because of the community outreach programs she started over many years. She has worked with vendors to provide food to the homeless and hungry in Yonkers and surrounding cities. Most recently, she partnered with FedEx to provide over 300 toys to underserved kids.
“I have made it my mission to provide services to help my Yonkers neighbors,” said Diaz. “I have created partnerships and used my relationships to address problems central not only to the people in my district but across Yonkers and in surrounding cities.”
As an appointed member of the Women’s Advisory Board for Westchester County Legislative District 17, and an active member of ACDY (Dominican Cultural Association of Yonkers). Diaz has the background to join the Yonkers City Council ready to get to work on day one. Her ability to get things done without a government office only further prepares her to affect real progress for District 3.
“I am excited to launch my campaign and continue to get out there and further immerse myself in the needs of the community,” said Diaz. “See you out there on the campaign trail!”
