Who Is Jim Lawson?

Why Is He Running for the Office of West Seneca Town Supervisor?

New Perspective, New Ideas, Better Government

I am running for public office because I believe the path to our town’s future is through bold ideas offered by fresh faces.  I have not previously served as a West Seneca government Elected official, but through my business interests and civic efforts as a school board member, I have served our community.  I have held summer positions for the town in many capacities as I grew up; buildings and grounds, highway and recreation positions. Later I served as a Youth Director developing and running programs such as Summer Camp, Band and Movie Night, Haunted Hay Ride Halloween events. I want to utilize the lessons I learned in those experiences to make West Seneca the growing, sustainable community we all seek and, I believe, we all deserve. West Seneca is a great place to live and raise a family. I want my children to stay and live here.

As a first step in accomplishing our shared goals, I believe that we must declare war on taxes.  The days and years of double-digit tax hikes, of a spiraling tax burden weighing down our residents, hampering our businesses and discouraging people from coming to live and work in our town, must end.

I have the ideas, ability and resolve to declare this war, direct its strategy, and deliver a victory to West Seneca families and business in the form of lowering taxes.  On this matter, during my campaign, I will offer unique, forward-looking plans that I’ve been researching and developing for several years.
