Official Candidates for the 2019 STYP Election
||I have approximately 4 months experience on the board and chaired the bylaws comittee. I’m also on the board of the Greater Binghamton Hospitality and Tourism Association as the secretary. I am interested in running for secretary of STYP as well but am happy to be a returning board member if someone else is elected.
My vision for STYP is pulling it into the future. I think our membership needs access to the benefits readily at their disposal in order to make membership worthwhile. I want to support a diverse community and showcase Binghamton as a great community to live and work in.

||I see STYP as a catalyst for getting young professionals involved in the area and becoming invested in the area, whether its through professional networks made, service events attended, or simply making friends and meeting people we never would have met otherwise.I am running because I want to help other newcomers to the area have the same great experience making friends and connections like I had. I moved to Binghamton about 2.5 years ago and struggled to meet anyone who wasn’t a practicing criminal law attorney. STYP led me to great friendships that I wouldn’t have been able to develop otherwise and help made Binghamton more than just a pitstop on a career path. STYP helped make Binghamton a place I am glad to have the luck to be a part of.
I am currently an assistant district attorney with Broome County and have been a practicing attorney for 4 years. I have worked in professional fields, as a bartender and a waiter and in politics. I believe my combined work experience would help this group not only from the perspective of someone newer to the area but also in helping organize group events that will branch out to bring more members and grow the group.
||An organization like STYP is so important because it really gives it’s members a sense of community and belonging with other young working professionals that we otherwise may never have met! I also think that this organization with its sense of community is crucial to promoting and keeping young people in the Binghamton area. I’ve made a lot of friends through STYP and am excited to be able to be able to give back and to contribute to an organization that I truly believe in.|
