Emily DominguezCommunity Advisor
Born and raised in the Village of Haverstraw in Rockland County, Emily Dominguez embodies the spirit of the small town girl. A North Rockland High School and Seton Hall University graduate, her commitment to her community is one that she learned right at home, from her mom, Marina. When Emily decided to leave the corporate world to start her own public relations and event marketing business there was no question that she would base her business in the Village of Haverstraw. It was a natural progression for Emily to take her dedication of the community to the next level and seek to be a trustee on the Haverstraw Village Board. Now in her 2nd term as a Village Trustee Emily is proud to count among her accomplishments for her community:Commissioner, Building Department & Village Ball FieldFormer Commissioner, Haverstraw Community CenterSecured $100K in Federal funding (Gang Prevention Grant) for a positive approach to youth needs in the Village.
