Rebecca M. Alesia is running for Oyster Bay town council member

Rebecca M. Alesia

Alesia touted her ability to work with officials of other government bodies to help bring amenities to Oyster Bay residents, including the One Town, One Book program in conjunction with local libraries and the building of a turf field on Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District property that town residents can use outside school hours. Echoing other Republican candidates in Oyster Bay, she faulted Democratic candidates who have focused on alleged corruption linked to town officials and to the town board's approval of lease agreements with indicted restaurateur Harendra Singh. "That is seemingly their only issue," Alesia said.

Alesia, 38, of Plainview is running on the Republican, Independence, Conservative and Reform lines. She also is endorsed by Tax Revolt. She was appointed to fill a board vacancy in February 2010 and elected to a partial and then full term. Alesia received a bachelor's from Connecticut College and a law degree from Hofstra University. She is an attorney in private practice who also works part time as a travel planner. She is married and has a son.
