Congratulations to Syracuse’s First Female Mayor

November 4, 2009

Congratulations to Stephanie Miner ( to be the first woman to be elected mayor in Syracuse’s 162 year history and the first in any major city in New York! Although she avoided talking about her gender during the campaign, she did thank all the adult women last night who serve as role models for young girls and convince them they can do anything.

With Joanie Mahoney as Onondaga County Executive (, Stephanie Miner as Syracuse Mayor, Deborah Stanley as President of SUNY Oswego (, Nancy Cantor as President of Syracuse University ( and Debbie Sydow as President of Onondaga Community College (, Central New York’s future is bright with these remarkable women at the helm. Today I hope you consider the important role you play by being a woman entrepreneur. Young eyes are watching you. Don’t forget about your young nieces, cousins and neighbors seeing what you are accomplishing. I also hope you consider running for a major leadership role in your community someday because women can positively change the world.
