Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — “I am honored to be a public servant in the village community. My wife, Colleen and I love our hometown of Wilson and are committed to doing our part to further enrich the lives of our neighbors. She shares my enthusiasm for being part of a community-wide effort to make our village better for everyone,” Leiker said.
“I look forward to continuing to serve the residents of Wilson in the capacity of mayor,” Leiker stated, “I want the community to know that I will always act in the best interests of each and every person who lives here. We are in this together.”
Kadryna, who is married to Gail, has managed the Wilson IGA for 24 years. He ran for office for the first time last year.
“I want to make Wilson a better place,” he said. “I didn’t like what was going on with the previous mayor ... My feeling is that Wilson is a great place that has not reached its potential yet.”
Kadryna feels the business of the town should be transparent and he will work to get sewer rates in line.
“I’m working on getting habor dredged, getting new businesses coming to town and making sure the village is run right with no increase in taxes,” he said. “We need the harbor dredged ASAP. The summer trade won’t be good at all if we don’t get boaters up here.”
Kadrya, who was bumped off the GOP ticket after a protest by the Democratic Party, formed the Taxpayer Party in order to get on the ballot. He filed amended paperwork to the Niagara County Board of Election and got the Republican and Independent lines back.
