Nyack’s mayor Richard Kavesh spoke about the recent appointees to the Nyack Housing Authority, Marie Lorenzini and Cara Bristol. Founded in 1960 The Housing Authority owns and operates Nyack’s three low-income properties, Waldron Terrace, Depew Manor and the Nyack Senior Center.
Marie Lorenzini, a 29-year resident of Nyack, has served Nyack in a public capacity before. A former member of the Board of Zoning and Planning and Nyack Village Trustee from 2004-2009, Mr. Kavesh said that Ms. Lorenzini brought tremendous experience from her incredible involvement in the Village of Nyack, ‘€œ I was so glad she was willing to say yes.’€
Cara Bristol, in contrast to her associate, has lived in Nyack for only two years and, is serving in a Nyack public office for the first time. Mr. Kavesh spoke about how he had met her and her husband while campaigning for mayor. He relayed how he spent hours in conversation with her stating, ‘€œI don’t even know if she voted for me, but we had such conversations that I was determined to find a place for her in village government when a vacancy arose.’€
Mr. Kavesh closed by saying that he believed that Ms. Lorenzini’s experience combined with the fresh face that Ms. Bristol brings to the authority was an ‘€œexcellent combination to bring.’€
