My short bio: Frank Cetera lives on Syracuse’s Westside where he’s known to neighbors and colleagues for his ability to accomplish a lot with a little. This is his first time running for office, but he has worked on 7 Green Party electoral campaigns over the past 5 years, including multiple races in support of Howie Hawkins (co-founder of the Green Party of the United States and 2-time former NYS Gubernatorial candidate).
Frank has a proven record of economic development through his day job as a New York State Senior Small-Business Advisor. And as peer-elected Board President at Cooperative Federal Credit Union, Frank is an active promoter of community finance for working families and local businesses.
Never afraid to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty, Frank has lead the transformation of five unused Syracuse green spaces into productive fruit and vegetable gardens with the Alchemical Nursery, the non-profit he founded after earning his Masters in Forestry at SUNY-ESF.
Whether he’s leading snow-shoveling brigades with Westside Walks, securing funding for the neighborhood Adopt-a-trash-can program, or organizing educational events – Frank is a tireless advocate for community building and cooperation.
Frank Cetera is committed to policies that will create a Syracuse for ALL OF US. The goal of city government must be to end poverty and create opportunities for all families to have a dignified life – with living wage jobs, fully funded schools and a responsive city government.
With your help we can elect the first Green to the Syracuse City Council, Frank Cetera, a community activist with proven record of achievement and cooperation.
