About Barbara

Barbara has the experience to work with the community to create and implement a new progressive and inclusive Town of Poughkeepsie government.

Barbara retired as a Deputy Director for the American Federation of Teachers where she worked for almost two decades around the country on large scale community projects with leaders and stakeholders, as well as organizing workers who wanted to form a union, and on member-to-member programs for AFT endorsed political candidates. She wants to bring that expertise to her hometown, the Town of Poughkeepsie!
