Sarah Compo to seek election to Watertown City Council

WATERTOWN, NY — Watertown resident Sarah V. Compo is excited to announce she is running for election to Watertown City Council.

“I was born and raised in Watertown and have lived here for more than 30 years,” said Sarah. “I know Watertown is a great place and I want to help it reach its full potential.”

“I want to look for new, innovative ways to save taxpayer dollars, continue the momentum we’ve seen Downtown, attract more young people to our city and improve the quality of life for all who live here. Watertown is my home—and I’m passionate about making it a better place. Together, I know we can.”

Sarah is a graduate of Immaculate Heart Central High School and SUNY Geneseo. Currently, she is employed by State Senator Patty Ritchie. She is also a small business owner, and operates Soirée NNY, the North Country’s first-ever day-of event coordinating service provider.

Perviously, Sarah worked as a weekend anchor and reporter for WWNY-TV 7 News. She began her career as a reporting assistant for NBC Today Show Financial Editor Jean Chatzky.

In January, Sarah was appointed to serve a one-year vacancy on Watertown City Council.

“In the coming weeks and months I will be to going door-to-door across our city to hear firsthand from residents about what they think can be done to improve life for people in Watertown,” said Sarah.

“I look forward to taking those ideas and putting them into action as a member of Watertown City Council.”
