Eventually, Laura went on to receive her Bachelor’s degree from Pace University, putting herself through school.

While politics was not in Laura’s career plan, public service was and is…That led Laura to serve six years as a School Board Trustee of the Mattituck-Cutchogue Board of Education, eventually being elected Board President.

Laura then went on to become the first woman elected to the office of Town Supervisor in Riverhead’s 225-year history. As Supervisor, Laura focused on comprehensive long-term planning, fiscal stability, economic development, farmland and open space preservation, protecting the environment, downtown revitalization and public safety.
