When I first made the decision to run for Mayor it was difficult, then I thought about how much this city has changed in my 16 years as a City Councilor, and in a lifetime spent living in Fall River. I realized that life experience brings with it the benefit of perspective. For too long we have tried grandiose plans and quick fixes. But we need to build this city back up brick by brick. The foundation of a new Fall River is its people, the only back is with its people, and they are the mortar that will hold the foundation of our city together.
I will share my plan to return the quality of life we once had, to bring back jobs, to control our uncontrolled spending, and most of all to make citizens and taxpayers a priority again.
I will offer solutions not promises! I will listen to the people of this city. I have learned much from my successes, but even more from my failures. Show me someone who has never made a mistake and I will show you someone who has never dared to dream!
The only promise I will make is to work tirelessly as your Mayor; I will listen to all of our citizens, all our businesses. I will have only one priority, the people of Fall River!
Every decision will be made with only one consideration…WHAT IS BEST FOR FALL RIVER!
I will be your Mayor, a Mayor that knows that no individual has all the answers, when we work together as a community, as a family, we will find the answers we need to return Fall River’s quality of life and our community pride.
I respectfully ask for your vote to allow me to bring experience back, to bring leadership back, and to bring you back into deciding our future!
I’m Linda Pereira and I am Ready to Lead!
