|November Monthly Meeting:
State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins: What Albany Has in Store for White Plains
The November Council of Neighborhood Associations Meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 7:30 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. The Guest Speaker will be NY State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, who will reveal “How Developments in Albany Impact White Plains Residents.”
Senator Stewart-Cousins earned her B.S. and her Masters of Public Administration from Pace University. Before entering public service, she worked in sales and marketing for New York Telephone/AT&T and also worked as a reporter and teacher, then served for a decade as a Westchester County Legislator. She was first elected to the State Senate in 2006 and currently represents Greenburgh, part of White Plains, part of New Rochelle, part of Yonkers and Scarsdale.
In 2012, Senator Stewart-Cousins was elected Leader of the Senate Democratic Conference, becoming the first female leader of a legislative conference in New York State history. Ms. Stewart-Cousins has always espoused the values of empathy, empowerment and civic engagement. These values, along with her strong belief in advocating for the underserved and championing the needs of working families, have distinguished her as a trailblazer in local and State government.
Before Senator Stewart-Cousins’ presentation, Thomas Osbeck, a Keller Williams Realty Salesperson, will talk briefly about an idea he has been working on that he describes as “a grass roots concept centered around neighborhood safety and connectivity with residents.”
The meeting is open to the public — bring your friends and neighbors — and will start promptly at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
