Marketa Edwards for Troy City Council, District 6
Hello! I'm Marketa Edwards, and I am a candidate for City Council in Troy, New York. I am first and foremost a mother, a grandmother, and a proud Black woman. I am active in civic engagement and community education throughout my neighborhood in South Troy. Our city is struggling with many complex issues, but far too often, our most at-risk neighbors are excluded from conversations with city leadership. Having myself experienced and overcome homelessness and the struggles that come with poverty, I am well-positioned to guide the vulnerable members of my City toward greater independence.
My vision is to uplift, inform, and inspire leadership in my community. I value responsibility and accountability as tools of governance that lead to integrity, liberation, and collective solidarity. I want to propel us forward as a community towards building healthy neighborhoods with an intentional focus on healing from past traumas.
My campaign is the campaign of all working families who feel that they are overlooked in favor of powerful and well-connected people. I will be a champion for tenants' rights and for those who have been long shut-out from politics as-usual. I will set an example of what people-powered leadership can and should be in our City.
Now we need you to join our mission! A grassroots campaign such as ours requires a committed team and financial support. I am learning every day how hard our political system works to keep people like me from getting on the ballot, but I am determined to overcome these hardships. I know we can do this with your support.
Thank you for your participation in this campaign!!
