NOW: After running for the State Senate from eastern Long Island, she was appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo as Executive Director of a Moreland Commission to look at corruption in Albany.
Most recently, she has written her life story, Etched in Sand. Here is a video trailer about the book.
I met her on Saturday evening, August 9, at the Authors Night in East Hampton.
The subject of her book reminds me of the new book by my sister Brigid Marlin, The Box House, also about a girl who takes charge of her siblings.
Another "Then and Now" post on what happened to people who worked at the NYC Comptroller's Office in the 1990s is here.
