Mineola-Garden City Rotary is delighted to welcome back Nassau County Legislator Laura Schaefer as guest speaker on Tuesday, July 27 at 12:15 p.m. at Calogero’s in Garden City.
Legislator Schaefer was first elected to the Nassau County Legislature in 2013 and was reelected by wide margins in 2015, 2017 and again in 2019 representing District 14, which includes Garden City and Garden City South along with other local communities.
Schaefer has provided updates on Legislative activities at past Rotary meetings. Now, in mid-2021, she will report on county-related issues such as local road reconstruction, recently passed legislation, upcoming events in District 14 and other county-related matters to include the opposition by the Legislature Majority Caucus of the state’s proposed gas tax.
Schaefer serves as Chairwoman of the Planning, Development & Environment Committee, Vice Chair of the Towns, Village & Cities Committee, and serves as a member of the Rules Committee, the Public Works Committee and the Health & Social Services Committee.
Prior to entering the legal field, Schaefer worked for the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan where she excelled in hospitality management overseeing large departments that were crucial to expediting guest services in order to provide customers with an exceptional stay.
Schaefer graduated from Adelphi University with a B.A. in Communications. She was later admitted to practice law in New York, receiving her Juris Doctor from Hofstra University School of Law.
Currently, Schaefer practices at Walsh Markus & DeBellis, LLP, in Garden City, in the firm’s Real Estate, Land Use and Litigation practice groups. She resides in Westbury where she grew up.
All are welcome to attend Rotary’s lunch meeting on July 27. For information and/or to reserve, email Diane.firstname.lastname@example.org.
