Anna has spent her career working to create more opportunities for people — particularly people who are underserved and unheard because she knows everyone deserves an opportunity to get ahead.
Anna started an elementary school to bring together students and teachers from all walks of life on Long Island to learn and grow in an environment emphasizing Social Justice and love of learning, while supporting kids with different learning needs and interests. Later, as director of the Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreation Center, Anna launched programs like Head Start, drug and teen pregnancy prevention, and study support — among many others — to help young people and families in need.
Most recently, as Southampton Town Supervisor, Anna turned around the town’s finances — uncovering and reducing large budget deficits, cutting wasteful spending, and getting the town upgraded to a AAA Bond Rating. Anna reorganized and streamlined the budget, and used the savings to invest in quality of life and public safety, education, senior services, the environment, and job creation — all while holding the line on taxes.
In Congress, Anna will fight against the growing inequality in America and continue her work to create opportunities for everyone — not just the wealthy and powerful.
