Candidate Bio: Deb Munitz for Town of Ramapo Supervisor

I have lived in Montebello for 26 years with my husband Rich and our three sons, all SHS graduates. My work expertise is in business operations and project management. I am well known for my many years on the Ramapo Little League, REACH Foundation of Rockland, being a Boy Scouts volunteer, a founder and leader of ROSA 4 Rockland, as well as other supporting many other community organizations with a record for effectiveness.

I am well known in Ramapo Town Hall for my advocacy on behalf of residents facing potential unjust decisions by Town government – residents throughout the entire Town of Ramapo from the low density unincorporated areas in Western Ramapo, Northeast Ramapo, Hillcrest, and Monsey, including efforts on behalf of many orthodox, Charedi, and Chassidic families – and also with respect to changes in local laws and at other public hearings.

I am running for Supervisor because the Specht administration is not addressing the fundamental issues of trust in Town Hall. There is still no sense of fairness; the Town boards’ processes and scheduling still favor developers’ wants over homeowner rights; and, I like most everyone else in Ramapo am concerned with the existing congestion, high taxes, potential town land sales and the lack of comprehensive planning.

I am not anti-development. I am a pragmatist who recognizes there remain opportunities for new development and redevelopment, and even rezoning, but only after undertaking the long overdue significant analysis to will determine the environmental constraints we are facing, and to figure out the right places and right ways to incorporate changes while protecting existing homeowners and their home investments, and not ignoring the real need for affordable housing that has largely been ignored for far too long.
