About Nina

I have been a resident of the Town of Kent since 1997.  My two children attended the Carmel Central School District and my son is a resident of Kent and a volunteer firefighter at the Kent Fire Department.  I love animals and have a horse that was rescued from Yonkers Raceway when her owner abandoned her, a rescued dog whose owner died suddenly, two twelve year dogs who are siblings, and two ferrets.  I love to ride horses, go stand up paddle boarding, and design with fiber, and this community provides me the opportunity to engage in all of these activities, enjoying our lakes and the natural beauty of our countryside. 

I have been a New York State licensed attorney since 1985, and currently work for the Appellate Division, First Department, as a Principal Attorney for Mental Hygiene Legal Service, an agency which protects the civil rights of the mentally ill and the intellectually disabled. I am also a member of the Character and Fitness Committee of the Second Judicial Department.  I have served as a School Board Trustee for the Carmel Central School District; a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician for the Lake Carmel Fire Department; and a member of the Kent Zoning Board of Appeals.  

Regardless of our political orientation, I believe the residents of Kent agree about preserving the natural beauty and resources of our Town while supporting commercial development which is responsible and consistent with the Zoning Laws and the Town of Kent Comprehensive Plan.  After thoughtful conversation with a wide variety of people in our community, I am convinced that there is far more that unites us than divides us and that we can move forward with consensus on solutions to the important issues facing our Town.

If you do me the honor of electing me, I will work my hardest to try to keep taxes affordable so that our residents are not forced to move; to seek and apply for any funding which may be available to our Town from the county, state, and federal governments; and to maintain the rural beauty of our community.
