DEMOCRAT FOR COUNCIL
Amy Vele currently serves as a Legislative Aide for Westchester County Legislator Colin Smith and served as Campaign Manager for the Democratic Party in 2019. A lifelong resident of Peekskill, Amy graduated from the University at Albany in 2018 with a Bachelors in Political Science and Journalism. Upon returning to Peekskill, she worked with New Era Creative Space and started organizing and working with other community leaders/organizations. Her interest in getting involved locally stems from her desire to share different perspectives and create constructive, and much needed, dialogue around issues that impact working-class individuals and advocating for solutions that benefit everyone. Her biggest goal is to find ways to bridge the gap between the English and Non-English speaking communities in Peekskill. Amy is also involved in countywide organizations including the Hispanic Democrats of Westchester, Westchester Young Democrats and Westchester County Democratic Committee.
