CORNING, N.Y. (WETM)- Another candidate has tossed their hat in the ring for mayor of the city of Corning.

On Wednesday evening, Elizabeth Whitehouse announced her candidacy for mayor. Whitehouse will run on the Green/Independent party line.

Using the slogan “a better way“, Whitehouse believes we can make the world a better place by simply re-evaluating existing world systems in hope of alleviating overpopulation, inequality, poverty, lack of adequate sanitation, healthcare, food, pollution, degradation of land, and climate change.

That is also why she has started the 20 by 2020 campaign. The campaign looks to helps Steuben County residents reduce their environmental impact 20% by the end of 2020.

There’s a lot, Whitehouse hopes to tackle during her time in office.

“Money overspent money and also physical waste,” said Whitehouse. “Garbage, recycling, wastewater treatment, those sort of things, where I think there’s a lot that can be done, that will save the city money. Any money that the city saves, we translate it into better services.”

Whitehouse will face incumbent mayor Bill Boland. Whitehouse will host weekly, town hall-style “Wine and Whine” events on Wednesdays at 5 p.m., at 51 Bridge Street in Corning.
