Milagros Vicente is running for Hempstead town council member (3rd District)

Milagros Vicente

Vicente said she wants to promote economic development and job growth and improve public safety and bolster access to youth services, such as special needs programs. She said she wants to improve transparency in the town and give her district an elected representative instead of an appointed council member. She said she is concerned about how money is being spent. Vicente said she would give residents an option to opt out of town and political mailings and hold more meetings at night. She wants to make a mobile office available to residents with more public forums. Vicente said she would create greater outreach with county police and urge officers to attend public meetings and communicate with the public.

Milagros Vicente, 47, of Valley Stream, is running on the Democratic, Women's Equality and Working Families party lines. Vicente is a community activist and mother of three. She has served as a project coordinator for a workforce program and economic development program for training at Northern Manhattan Improvement Corp.

She is the founder of Miracle Lives Inc., which assists children with special needs, and is a membership specialist with Girl Scouts of Nassau County.
