City/Town of Residence Mamaroneck
Current Political Office Town Supervisor
Education BS in Economics, Northwestern University
Prior Civic Service Mamaroneck Town Councilwoman 12 years, Co-chair of the Long Island Sound Citizens Advisory Committee, member and chair of the Larchmont Mamaroneck Coastal Zone Management Commission, member of the Westchester County Board of Health, Chair of the Westchester County Committee on Nonpoint Source Pollution of Long Island Sound, Chair of the Westchester County Environmental Management Council, Chair of the Westchester Chapter of the League of Conservation Voters.
My approach to maintaining high level resident services is to look for ways to improve services while keeping tax increases as low as possible. I look for opportunities to improve sustainability, resiliency, and quality of life for all residents by reducing our energy footprint, saving money, planning for the future, and repairing and improving essential Town infrastructure with grant money. Transparency and accessibility is a critical part of my approach to good government.
During my tenure as Supervisor, the Town has encouraged more affordable housing by adopting the "Model Housing Ordinance," amending the business district zoning code to allow for mixed use including residential housing, and inviting developers of affordable housing to assess possible sites. The Town also administers a robust Section 8 program. I would like to see more affordable housing in the Town of Mamaroneck, but it is difficult to implement due to extremely high land costs.
