The VMD is excited to announce it has endorsed Maria DeRose, Daniel Kushnick and Ellen Silver for Trustee in this year's election. All of these candidates have a history of giving back to our community. In addition, they each provide professional skill sets that will benefit the Board. Below are very short introductions to these talented individuals. We will provide additional information about these candidates and their platform for this election soon.


Maria DeRose

A life-long resident of the Village, Maria DeRose is running for Trustee to help create positive solutions that will benefit the residents of the Village. She is a non-affiliated voter and looks to be a unifying force between political parties. In her professional life, she is head of North American operations for the Lorenz Life Sciences Group. Maria served as a member of the Village’s Flood Mitigation Committee for 6 years and has been serving on the Board of Ethics prior to becoming an endorsed candidate.

Daniel Kushnick

Daniel Kushnick and his wife grew up in the Village and graduated from Mamaroneck High School. They returned to the Village 9 years ago. Daniel is an accomplished senior program coordinator with a passion for sustainable energy. He has served 3 years on the Committee for the Environment and is currently the chair of the committee. He has been closely involved in projects along the Mamaroneck Greenway path to decrease flooding and increase recreational space.

Ellen Silver

Ellen Silver has lived in the Village with her family since 2006. She has served as chair of the Committee for the Environment and the Climate Smart Communities Task Force and recently joined the Board of the Harbor Island Conservancy. Ellen is concerned about the ongoing risk of flooding, and personally experienced its impact in Hurricane Ida. With an MBA in finance and a 23-year professional career in banking, she plans as Trustee to be a careful steward of the Village's tax revenues.

The Village of Mamaroneck Democrats is also pleased to announce its endorsement of Shelley Mayer for New York State Senator, Steve Otis for New York State Assembly Member and Dan Gallagher for Village of Mamaroneck Judge.
