COUNCILMEMBER-AT-LARGE

I am a life–long resident of Dutchess County. I was born in 

Poughkeepsie, raised in Beacon, and graduated from Beacon High 

School.  Upon graduating from the State University of New York 

at Oswego with a Bachelors of Arts degree, I moved from Beacon 

to Poughkeepsie to attend Marist College as a graduate student in 

the Public Administration program (MPA).  

While working at Dutchess Community College as a Admissions  Counselor, I graduated from Marist College with an MPA, and  obtained my second Masters in Management & Urban Policy from  The New School in New York City. Shortly after completing my  second masters’ degree, I ran for a seat on the City of  Poughkeepsie Common Council,representing the 5th Ward; and I  won. I worked hard on a number of local issues that not only impacted  the 5TH Ward but the city at-large. I was a member of the  Common Council when the city saw its darkest days and most  sorrowful moments. Gun violence plagued the city and reached  epic proportions. The city saw 50 shootings and 15 murders in  one year. My sole focus was on public safety, community policing,  civic engagement, and economic development.
