Rebecca is running for County Legislature to make sure the County is working for all of its residents. After a lifetime of working with children and families in underserved communities, Rebecca is ready to invest her time into the people of Putnam. She will work hard to ensure that all Putnam County residents get the representation and services they need and deserve.
Rebecca has spent her entire life working for people. She left college to work as a community organizer in South Providence, RI. She helped people in the neighborhood organize politically so their voices would be heard. The organization that she worked for during this period recognized that education is critical for upward mobility so she helped organize and direct a volunteer tutorial program. After returning to school and obtaining a master’s degree from Columbia University, she worked as a professional social worker in a therapeutic nursery. Rebecca’s dedication to fairness no matter what a persons background or resources and helping families improve their lives has only grown over time.
“I put my time and passion in what I believe in, and I believe in people.”
When elected, she will put this energy to work for you.

Better oversight of the County budget to prevent more wasteful spending and tax increases.
