  •   New Year Message from Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh
      Syracuse Friends and Neighbors,
      Beginning the year 2018 as your mayor is an incredible honor.  I take on this responsibility with humility and determination.
      Humble, because I am well aware that the mayor, alone, cannot overcome the challenges and seize the opportunities we face. It will take our whole community working together for Syracuse to truly succeed.
      Determined, because I know you all deserve the very best of your city government and its leadership. My team and I are focused on ensuring we deliver that – each and every day. And if we fall short, we will be ready to make corrections and improve going forward.
      On the path to becoming mayor, I promised to do all I can to make Syracuse better in three ways:
    enhancing quality of life and safety in city neighborhoods
    improving academic achievement and safety in city schools
    reducing poverty by increasing economic opportunity for all
      As I start the New Year and my service to you as mayor, I want you to know these promises will guide my team and me each and every day.  With your help, I know we can achieve them and help the city we love to #RiseAbove. Thank you and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2018.
