FALLS TOWNSHIP >> Seema Kazmi has announced her candidacy for a seat on the Falls Township Board of Supervisors.
Kazmi said she’s running to be “an advocate” for Falls Township promising to fight for a “healthy, safe and a thriving community.”
Kazmi said she supports a healthy community, including COVID-19 vaccines, addressing the opioid epidemic and providing parks and recreation for exercise; a safe community through grants for drug-free communities and partnerships and funding for police and fire; and a thriving community with support for small business, career development programs and building infrastructure.
“I am seeking this role to provide support to small businesses affected by the pandemic, support grants for drug-free partnerships with local businesses, provide local career development programs and ensure appropriate stewardship of township funding,” she said.
Kazmi, who grew up in Falls Township, attended Pennsbury Schools and earned her Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.
A licensed pharmacist, Kazmi currently works in long-term facilities to ensure appropriate medication use and pharmacy services are in compliance with state and federal agencies.
Because Kazmi has worked for independent pharmacies, she said she understands the challenges of running a small business.
Her community service activities have included fundraising for diabetes camps for children, advocacy for affordable insulin, advocacy for people with rare diseases and disabilities.
Politically, she is a volunteer phone bank captain and was team leader for PA Back to Blue for 2020 Presidential Campaign. She will be challenging two incumbents in the upcoming Democratic Municipal Primary.
