Anita Mullane
Second-Ward Alderwoman Anita Mullane re-election announced her candidacy for re-election to the seat.

Mullane, who won a special election to take the seat vacated by Ron Franco at the end of 2014, called for greater transparency and promised to delve deeper into the city's financial issues if re-elected.

The lifetime Lockport resident has been endorsed by the city and county Democratic committees, as well as the Working Families Party.

Mullane's announcement follows in its entirety:
Anita Mullane announces her candidacy for re-election as 2nd Ward Alderwoman in the City of Lockport.

“I have determined that there is much to be done and I am therefore seeking a full term as Alderman of the 2nd Ward. I joined the Council after the deficit financing was sought from New York State and I need more time to help solve the problems we are facing. Upon taking office I personally met with department heads and many employees at City Hall to get an understanding of how each department runs and their strengths and deficiencies in order to better serve the people of Lockport. Each of my constituents is important to me. I have personally contacted or visited everyone who has reached out to me with a problem since I took office in January. There is a greater need for transparency and accountability at City Hall and I am committed to providing both. Essential services such as fire and police protection and safe streets and clean water are what our tax dollars should be directed towards. I am concerned about the City’s finances and would like the chance to delve deeper into the situation during a full term. A major part of my job is being responsive to the needs of my constituents and I have done that.  I hear you and understand your concerns.  I intend to continue to listen and to act on your behalf. I am very honored to have been elected to serve as your Alderwoman of the 2nd Ward and with your support would like to continue to represent you."

Mullane is a lifelong resident of the City of Lockport and resides on Lindhurst Drive with her husband of 32 years, Daniel. They have three children, Kimberly, John (Amanda), and Jessica. She has been a Math Teaching Assistant for the Lockport City School District for the past fifteen years and is a longtime member of the Lockport Education Association Executive Board, NYSUT, and All Saints Parish. Mullane attended Lockport Senior High School and SUNY Brockport majoring in Political Science and is an honorary life member of PTA and past PTSA President at Emmet Belknap School. Mullane served on the Lockport High School Foundation Board of Directors for 6 years and she was the recipient of the 2013 NYSUT Local Leadership Award and a 2014 YWCA of Niagara Women of Distinction nominee. Mullane has been endorsed by the Niagara County Democratic Party, the City of Lockport Democratic Party and the Working Family Party.
