Vote Cristina Da Silva for Village Trustee



Cristina Da Silva Cristina Da Silva is a 20 year resident of Ossining. She graduated from Ossining High School and went on to earn Bachelor degree from Pace University, and went on to graduate from Pace University School of Law. In school, she served as the Student Bar Association Representative and was a member of the Latin American Law Studies Association.


Cristina wants "people to become active members of their communities and I want to break the stereotypes that you can’t be young and involved in local politics"


She is active in the Portuguese community and feels strongly about getting younger people involved in government. She has organized several meetings at the Ossining Portuguese Center to register individuals who have not yet registered to vote, and plans to expand her efforts register voters and promote cultural activities to include all of the diverse ethnic groups in Ossining.


She is a licensed realtor and is currently working in her family business in Ossining, Irene G. Da Silva Real Estate. She is a member of the Westchester County Board of Realtors.

Four years ago, Cristina ran for Village Trustee and so impressed her opponents, that they have asked her to run with them this year. She will add her efforts to the recent improvements in the village:


"I want to see the downtown flourish - it has come a long way, but I want to bring more businesses into the downtown. I would like to promote our downtown and riverfront as a destination for residents of other villages!"


Cristina has been involved in non-profit organizations and countless hours of pro bono work:


Bullet Jack Pereira Foundation
Bullet Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center
Bullet Legal Aid Society
Bullet John Jay Legal Services


Cristina's legal experience provide valuable insights on the Board. She has worked actively to provide for the needs of others, who could not otherwise find representation. Her real estate experience provides an expert knowledge of zoning laws and issues. Her fresh perspective and innovative thinking will be a welcome asset to the Village Board.
