YONKERS, NY — Nerissa Pena, candidate for Westchester County Legislator
for the 17th District, is sponsoring a campaign kick-off
event today, Wednesday, August 14th, at Plaza Garibaldi,
located at 134 Nepperhan Ave , Yonkers , NY.
The catalyst that motivated Ms Pena to seek elected office
is due to the lack of representation by incumbent County Legislator Virginia
Perez, with the constituents of the 17th Legislative District losing
many of the vital services and programs that are essential for the
community. Ms. Pena stated, “My goals are to restore faith in government
officials and focus on legislation that is realistic and that will benefit the
constituents that I hope to represent.”
Ms Pena is currently the Chief of Staff for City of
Yonkers 2nd District City Councilmember and Majority Leaders
Wilson Terrero. She has been working in the community attending numerous
community meetings and helping hundreds of constituents with diverse issues,
acting as a liaison with city, county and state agencies.
The proud mother of two lovely daughters, Dayhana and
Angeline, she is also a and a lifelong resident of the City of Yonkers.
