Dana’s experience, tireless energy, and strong connections throughout the community and the region are the foundation for her continued success in leading Ossining through these uncertain times.
Dana’s experience as Assemblywoman Sandy Galef’s Chief of Staff, as well as nine years on the Ossining School Board, gave her the skills needed for managing staff and taxpayer dollars. Her depth of knowledge has paid off in her ability to get things done for the Town of Ossining, including: the replacement of a culvert at 9A and 134; new generators to back up all our pump stations; new fitness and playground equipment; fixed up pavilions; a new spray pad at Engel park; new picnic areas; fixed up comfort stations at our parks; electric vehicle charging stations; new PILOTs to protect affordable housing at Maple House and Snowden House; food scraps recycling in partnership with Teatown; local laws permitting solar installations and battery energy storage; restored Dale Cemetery Superintendent’s Cottage; a plan for bikeable/walkable connectivity; and a new Comprehensive Plan entitled Sustainable Ossining and Complete Streets policy now in the works, introduction of EnergySmart HOMES campaign, recognition of Ossining 100, introduction of Grid Rewards, introduction of the Habitat Stewards program, to name a few. She is now a convert to her fully electric Hyundai Kona and is a big proponent of driving electric. She looks forward to the delivery of the first fully electric minibus to add to the Town of Ossining’s fleet for their Senior Nutrition Program, and is so proud of the electric charging stations in three popular Town parks, in addition to the fully electric Leaf and plug in hybrids used in various departments.
