ACCOMPLISHED. HARD-WORKING. DETERMINED.
During 17 years in the Bedford Central School District, Bobbi served as Bedford Hills Elementary School class parent myriad times, school library volunteer, literacy helper in the classroom, two time 8th Grade Moving-Up Chair and Parent Speaker, Vice President of the Fox Lane Middle School Association, and Fox Lane High School Store volunteer. She and the teachers are partners in her children’s education and she enjoys stepping up when able.
As an attorney, Bobbi uses her skills to advocate for those who do not always have a voice. In her Co-chair role in the Civil Rights and Social Justice Section of the American Bar Association, she has drafted letters to Congress, helped write policy, and was invited to be an inaugural member of the new Human Rights Campaign ‘Project THRIVE’ initiative. She is newly appointed to the New York State Bar Association Committee on Civil Rights and has just been invited to sit on the Board of Directors of the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia.
Most recently Campaign Manager for Chris Burdick for State Senate, Bobbi is a District Leader for the Bedford Democratic Committee. Having volunteered on campaigns of all levels behind the scenes, this is her first foray into public office as a candidate. She will take lessons learned through past victories and defeats, and turn them into strategies to win her a seat so you can move Bedford forward together.
Bobbi served as leader for her daughter’s Girl Scout Troop and is currently a Girl Scout Silver Award Mentor, empowering middle school girls to create lasting change in their communities. She is completing her fourth year on the board of the Bedford Community Theatre, bringing affordable arts to our corner of Northern Westchester, engaging Bedford in multigenerational theatre as a community. She was formerly an Emergency Medical Technician who served with the Katonah Bedford Hills Ambulance Corps.
As a 26 year member at Bet Torah Synagogue, Bobbi served on their Board of Directors for nine years, four on the Executive Committee. She was Chair of the nursery school Parent Network Committee, then Chair of the Nursery School Board for three years. Following that, she became Sisterhood President, overseeing a board of 40 women and a membership of 200. She moved on to Youth Commission Chair where she increased chapter participation in the Regional summer program by 250% and rebuilt the defunct Parent Commission.
