Sandra Valdez (D)
A lifelong resident of Lancaster County, Sandra Valdez has been living in East Petersburg Borough for the past 13 years. She is a Latinx mother and grandmother, who believes the diversity of East Petersburg Borough should be represented on the Council.
Sandra is running because she wants to ensure that all residents, especially young children, can be safe in their homes and on the streets of East Petersburg. She would like police to better address common traffic issues, such as cars’ speeding through intersections with no regard for pedestrians in crosswalks and taking shortcuts through neighborhoods, putting children at risk.
In her professional career, Sandra has become well-versed in strategic planning, operations management, finance management, fundraising, and community relations. If elected, she would bring these skills to her role on the Council. Her ultimate goal is to be a voice for the community, helping to find ideal strategies to keep everyone safe.
