Nonprofit Westchester (NPW) Executive Director Joanna Straub served as one of three panelists for the League of Women Voters 2013 Candidate Debate at Pace University Graduate Center in White Plains on Wednesday, October 23. With close to 100 people in attendance, the event included debates for the District Attorney and County Clerk seats, as well as the County Executive seat, which was the fourth and final debate for Incumbent County Executive Robert P. Astorino and Challenger New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson. Joined by her fellow panelists, News 12 Westchester Anchor John Goff and Master of Public Administration Pace University student Sam Fandrich, Straub asked important questions at the much anticipated debate that highlighted issues important to residents, including the roles of government and nonprofit organizations in supporting the most vulnerable residents in the communities. Housing, taxes, the Tappan Zee Bridge project, and the government shut down were included in other topics discussed during the debate. NPW represents over 80 nonprofits in Westchester County and continues to be an advocate for organizations throughout the community.
