In a March, 2013 Nyack Sketch Log, then-Mayor Jen Laird White was asked what the low point of her time in office was. She responded unequivocally: Hurricane Sandy. “The devastation was stunning,” she said. “In the immediate aftermath, relief was not easy or forthcoming. During the storm and in the horrible days right after, we lost power, we sustained substantial damage as a community and we lost a life. It was a terrifically difficult time.”
Jen Laird White retires from public office this month. A lot has changed in her six years as mayor and two years as trustee. Over the next few days, we’ll recap some of the accomplishments during her time in office.
