To the Editor:
I urge Woodbury voters to elect Anastasia V. Persico to the Board of Finance on November 2. Ms. Persico has years of direct experience in asset management based on her education and work. She has a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s degree in leadership and finance, both from nearby Post University. For the last several years, Ms. Persico has also been the principal of AVEDO solutions, a local accounting firm.
Beyond her professional qualifications, Ms. Persico is seriously committed to the Woodbury community. Her activities include being secretary of the Woodbury Chamber of Commerce, serving on local boards and active participation in town groups such as the Woman’s Club.
In addition, Ms. Persico is founder and president of the worldwide Rotary Network for Empowering Women.
In addition, I know her as my next door neighbor, and I can attest to her friendship and concern for everyone in Woodbury. She enjoys people and friendly gatherings. Ms. Persico is also a family person with a son in the U.S. Army and a daughter in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Based on her experience, her personality, her intelligence and her interests I believe she will be an excellent addition to the hardworking group that is our Board of Finance. Please select her to represent your interests for a two-year term starting in December 2021.
