Five candidates are running for five available seats on the board. They are...
Dan Love joined the US Air Force after high school, went to Pace University under the GI bill, attended Wharton Business School, and worked for IBM for thirty-one years. He currently works for Siwel Consulting Inc as VP Business Development.
Dan has lived in Sleepy Hollow Manor for 33 years, and serves on the Police Affairs Committee for the Village of Sleepy Hollow. He is also an Officer(Adjutant) of the American Legion Post 1038, a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America, and a ProVetus Mentor to help prevent veteran suicide.
Louise McGuigan-Yorio grew up in Ardsley and attended Fordham University, where she got her BS and MBA. While still at Fordham, she landed a job at Elizabeth Arden and has been in the beauty and fashion industry ever since. She’s worked at Erno Laszlo, Estee Lauder and, most recently, at MAC Cosmetics as the Executive Director of Global Product Marketing for Color.
Working and commuting had never before allowed her the time to get involved with the school or the Village, but she now has the time to commit to our community and would love to bring her skills to the Association.
She and her husband have two children, ages 13 and 10.
Jennifer Ostfield grew up in California and attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She began her political life working at the State House while still in college. She continued to work in politics in Washington DC, California, and Michigan on the state and federal levels, specializing in constituent services. She is committed to serving her local community and, during her three years on the board, has focused on having the Village work for us. She helped push the Governor’s office to (finally) get Route 9 repaved several years ago. She has spearheaded the planning, with other members, of six social events every year, including the July 4th and Halloween celebrations, new member parties, and tag sales.
Jennifer and her husband have lived in Sleepy Hollow for six years and have two kids, the oldest of whom is headed off to college in the fall.
Rebecca Scarpati has lived in Sleepy Hollow Manor for 25 years. Serving on the board of SHMA has been an opportunity to continue a tradition that she values greatly: welcoming newcomers and families to the neighborhood, helping to bring people together, and working for the common interest of our community. Whether that means beautifying the neighborhood, improving environmental health, addressing infrastructure concerns, or working in partnership with our Village and fellow community members in nearby neighborhoods, she has loved working with the current board and looks forward to welcoming new members.
Rebecca and her husband have three grown children – including one freshly married, and the youngest headed to college in the fall.
Daphne Uviller was appointed to the board last July to fill the spot of another member who resigned before his term was concluded. A novelist by profession, Daphne takes advantage of her flexible work hours to give time to the TUFSD PTA, to local political elections, and to writing communiques to the SHMA membership. She and her husband and their two children -- ages 10 and 13 -- moved to Sleepy Hollow in August 2016 from Poughkeepsie (though she will not leave a conversation without letting you know that she was born and raised in Greenwich Village). Committed to changing the world locally, she can think of nothing more local than serving her neighbors to make this extraordinary manor the friendliest and most beautiful it can be.
