Juan Ayala, a newcomer to the political arena of Middletown, is looking to be a voice to the diverse community of the 4th Ward. Historically, Middletown has been complacent in re-electing incumbents with indifference. Middletown is in desperate need, perhaps more than ever for a government that is transparent and accountable for its actions and more appropriately represents the citizen of the 4th Ward.

Middletown is Juan’s home. He grew up here when the old Erie main line still ran through downtown. He graduated from Middletown High School and SUNY Orange spending most of his professional career working within the borders of Middletown.

Juan came to the Middletown area as a son of working-class single mother when he was four. His mother modeled hard-work and determination, and at a young age, Juan understood the importance of these values to create opportunities.

Juan has built a very success career in information technology spanning over 30 years and having worked in multiple positions from programming, project management to IT Director. Back in 2006, Juan founded, with his ex-boss, an IT firm specializing in health care medical billing. Juan believes his work experience of managing systems, policies and most importantly budgets can benefit the city of Middletown.

Juan is your neighbor, and he is running for Alderman so your voice can be heard. He would be honored to receive your vote for Alderman. Please follow along on his Facebook page for more information. https://www.facebook.com/JuanAyala4Freedom/
