Janet Burman Pledges that Public Safety will be
Her First Priority as Mayor
The first responsibility of government is to ensure the safety of citizens.
The federal government must keep citizens safe from foreign invaders, natural disasters, and public health threats.
Our city government must keep us safe from crime, and in the event of fire and medical emergencies.
But our current mayor and city council are failing many of our citizens. They have acted only in response to highly publicized tragedies.
I pledge that public safety will be my first priority as Mayor of Syracuse.
We will feel safe in our home;
We will feel safe on our streets;
We will feel safe in our parks - and in our parking lots; and
We will feel safe in our interactions with law enforcement.
