    Nita is a powerhouse of energy and an outstanding advocate for the 17th Congressional District. When Hurricane Sandy hit, and crippled the Village of Piermont - while she had yet to be seated as our representative - Nita was here within two days of the storm, asking if there was anything we needed. Nita continues to work tirelessly to ensure that FEMA is responsive to our continuing restoration needs and we get the relief we’re deserved.
