Martha Lopez-Hanratty, who was Westchester County’s Hispanic liaison for eight years up until this month, may be reappearing in a new community role in Port Chester.
Mayor Dennis Pilla introduced her this morning during a meeting of clergy and community groups discussing Census 2010. The village is about to hire a bilingual coordinator to help educate voters about the June 15 election, which will fill all six trustee seats under a new, court-ordered cumulative voting system.
Pilla said it wasn’t official, but his comments made clear that Lopez-Hanratty was a leading choice for the job. A Mamaroneck High School grad and resident of New Rochelle, she was liaison under Andy Spano before Rob Astorino took over as county exec.
