CSEA Endorses Lauren Raysor For MVPL Trustee

The Civil Service Employees Association have endorsed Attorney Lauren Raysor in her run for Trustee of the Mount Vernon Public Library along with Andrea Fobbs.

“The Mount Vernon Library’s current board of trustees has created serious disruptions in library operations and services and undermined the morale of the staff,” said Gary Newman, the library’s Union President. “The CSEA has endorsed Lauren Raysor for Trustee, along with Andrea Fobbs, because they believe they are best equipped to restore the library’s primary commitment to the community.”

“The decision to endorse Lauren and Andrea was an easy one,” said Anthony Adamo, CSEA Southern Region President. “We look forward to working with both once they’re elected as partners, to ensure the library remains a gem for our Mount Vernon residents.”

“I wish to thank CSEA for their support in my race for Library Trustee,” Ms. Raysor said. “This is a very important endorsement. I am very proud to serve the community and I ask for your vote as Trustee.”

Ms. Raysor, who is running for one of two open seats along with Ms. Fobbs, has been a public servant throughout her career. During her legal career, she has taken more than 35 cases to verdict and has argued before the Appellate Division. In addition, she is the author of Living The Wealthy Life, which was dedicated to youth seeking positive direction.

Ms. Fobbs is running on Row 1B and Ms. Raysor on Row 5B. Raysor and Fobbs will face Cathlin Gleason (incumbent) Jamie Pessin (incumbent) and Hope Kimberly Marable for the two seats available. Voting will take place by absentee ballot only by June 9, 2020 at 5 p.m
