Board Member - 4th term, expires 2019
I’m seeking reelection to the Ossining Library Board for another term so that I can continue to help the library grow and serve the community. Many people – both locals and people who have occasion to visit – think ours is the best library in Westchester, and I agree. We’re the best because of the quality of our staff, and also because we respond to our community’s changing needs.
The Board has an indirect role in this. We can and do suggest and advise, and act as a sounding board for the Director and staff. Together, we’re able to explore new directions. I have enjoyed participating in that role and would like to continue to do so. I’m able to do so successfully in part because I tend to challenge the status quo.
I’ve lived in the Ossining School District for many years, though not in the Town or Village. Thus, I’m not able to participate in other aspects of Ossining’s government. But my involvement with the library is a good and satisfying way to make a positive contribution to the local community. Thank you for your consideration.
