WARREN, Pa. – Jared Villella is excited to announce his candidacy for Warren City Council on the Republican ticket.
He has been involved with the Warren County Republican Committee and Warren County Young Republicans since 2017 while serving as Chair of the WCYR for the last three years. He has gained unique insights into the needs and issues of city residents through his involvement in the community and local Republican Party organizations.
“I’ve knocked on thousands of doors in the city during the past four election cycles for other Republican candidates, listening to the problems our citizens are facing,” Villella said. “Those conversations are what made me decide to run for City Council. I am prepared to continue working hard for, and listening to, the citizens of the City of Warren to effect positive change.”
Villella started working in Warren in 2003 and has lived in the city with his wife and daughter since 2007. His 18-year career in marketing has been spent at two locally owned companies, so he understands the challenges facing both citizens and businesses in the city. He is a graduate of the Dale Carnegie and Center for Creative Leadership programs. He has been with Whirley-DrinkWorks! for the past 14 years, holding the position of Marketing Team Leader since 2017.
Always one to tackle problems head-on and gather all the information before making any decisions, Villella is someone who loves a challenge and is ready to devote time and energy in support of improving our city. He knows it is the people that make a city into a community, and that local elected officials need to be adept at listening.
“The only way to keep Warren strong and well-positioned for the future is by working to get more citizens involved in the conversation,” he said.
Villella feels that any successful plan to implement change starts with a solid foundation. He has focused his campaign around three things: Safety, Growth & Accountability.
“It is my commitment to you that if elected I will always work to ensure the citizens of the City of Warren remain safe, have opportunities for personal and professional growth and that their tax money isn’t spent unnecessarily,” he said.
The primary election on May 18 is the opportunity for voters to select which three Republicans will best represent them in the general election in the Fall.
“I’m fourth on the ballot, and humbly ask for your vote in the primary election,” Villella said, because “local elections have a tremendous impact on our everyday lives.”
