Sarika Bansal, a cybersecurity consultant, and businesswoman, today announced her campaign for Cary Town Council District D.
“I am running for Town Council because we must embrace Cary’s potential. We must include more voices from the community so the town can make strategic investments for future generations,” said Ms. Bansal.
The mother of a 14-year-old daughter, Aanya Lunani, Ms. Bansal says her focus will be on public safety, smart growth, and investments in the town’s future. “We need to enhance our parks programs including aquatics and tennis in western Cary,” said Ms. Bansal. “I know the importance of community services. By providing access to essential services, it will help improve the well-being of individuals and families, build relationships, engage meaningful activities, and strengthen overall vitality of the community.”
