Tammie Williams (D)
Tammie Williams is seeking a Council seat on the Town of Hempstead Board in order to advocate for the community. She wants to open up town government and save money for residents in the process. To do that she will create a transparent bidding process for town contracts to ensure taxpayers pay a fair price and every business has a fair chance to participate. She also will make sure town jobs are open to all residents and that hiring is based on merit. And she will ban political mailings sent at taxpayer expense.
Finally, Williams will be a strong advocate for programs that serve families and children.
Williams is mom to son C.J., who has special needs. She has spearheaded community-based programs to meet the needs of children with special needs and their families in Elmont where so few programs for similarly situated families and children exist.
Williams holds a Bachelor of Science degree in community and human services from SUNY Empire State College, and a Master’s degree in social work from Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. She is a mother, social worker, director of the Girls P.R.I.D.E. Project, and serves on the board at the Elmont Public Library.
