Name: Jessica Rocco
City of Residence: 
East Palestine
Party Affiliation: 
Republican
Office Desired: 
East Palestine Village Council

Why should you be elected?
As a mother, I have a vested interest in creating opportunities for our younger population to want to stay in East Palestine and call it home.  As a businesswoman, I have a vested interest in bringing more business to East Palestine to revitalize and grow our community as well as establishing better communication amongst the “inner workings” of our village.  As a resident, I have a vested interest in beautifying East Palestine and keeping it safe. One thing that I have held dear to me is that I have always wanted to give and serve in the community that I reside and conduct business in.  I am committed to bettering our village by doing the necessary work to enhance the goodness we already have as well as create more.  

What are your top three priorities if elected?
Gather input from business owners in town as to what is working for them and what is not working for them regarding being a business in town. Seek to enhance communication between council and village entities such as the Police Department and the like. Determine the needs of the village residents.
