New Rochelle City Council Members to be Guests at Coffee and Conversation at the Library on Jan. 17

Five of the six members of the New Rochelle City Council will be guest speakers and answer questions at a Coffee and Conversation, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of New Rochelle, on Friday, January 17, 2020, at 9:30 a.m. in the Meeting Room of the New Rochelle Public Library, 1 Library Plaza. This event, one of an ongoing series of informal public gatherings, is a departure from the usual format of one guest.

Coffee and light refreshments will be available.

The three new council members are Martha Lopez-Hanratty (District 1), Yadira Ramos-Herbert (District 3), and Sara Kaye (District 5). With incumbent Liz Fried (District 6) they form a female majority on the council for the second time in New Rochelle history

Incumbent Albert Tarantino (District 2) will also attend. Incumbent Ivar Hyden (District 4) said he was unavailable that day. Residents can check on their district from the map HERE.

All six councilmembers were elected or reelected on Nov.5 of this year and were installed at a City Hall ceremony on January 1.

"We think Coffee and Conversation will be a good opportunity for people to meet and chat informally with their local representatives," said Joan Alexander, LWVNR Voter Service Chair.
