Nancy B. Sliwa

Nancy B. Sliwa


BACKGROUND: Sliwa, 40, of Manhattan, who married this year, has practiced law under her maiden name, Regula, for 11 years. She is a Brooklyn Law School graduate and founder of City Kitty, a Brooklyn charity that protects feral cats and spays and neuters them, then finds homes for them.

ISSUES: Sliwa is running on a platform based on animal protection. She is a member of the Guardian Angels, the group whose members in safety patrols wear red jackets and berets while patrolling crime-ridden streets. She married Curtis Sliwa, the group’s founder, this year and heads the organization’s new animal protection unit. The new unit brings feral cats to rat-infested buildings while also spaying and neutering the cats. The unit also helps youths connect with the cats. She is also a legal consultant and adviser to the group. Recently she was in court for the Guardian Angels, who had nabbed a man suspected of lewd acts in the subway.
