Bernice Spreckman

Bernice SpreckmanDistrict 14

Yonkers, Mount Vernon

 


Bernice Spreckman is a longtime resident of Yonkers. She was first elected in 1995 to the 14th District’s County Legislative seat.  Prior to becoming a County Legislator, Bernice served in several posts in Yonkers city government, including three terms as 2nd Ward Councilmember, Councilmember-at-Large, Vice Mayor and Chair of the City Council's Committees on Rules and Real Estate. Bernice was also elected the first female president of the New York State Councilman's Association.

 

Bernice is currently Chair of the Board’s Committee on Generational, Cultural and Ethnic Diversity and serves as a member of the Committees on Budget and Appropriations, Housing, Planning and Government Operations, and Public Safety and Security. 
A tireless advocate for senior citizens, Bernice was the Chair of the Board’s former Committee on Seniors.  In that role, she has initiated several successful and innovative programs, including the Shopper's Shuttle and the Adopt-a-Senior Citizen Center Program. HMO reform, expanding the EPIC program to the disabled and lowering prescription drug prices remain Bernice’s top priorities. She leads an annual lobby day in Albany for Westchester citizens to express their concerns to state lawmakers. She also organized an information drive to make seniors aware of the "Balanced Billing" law, which protects them from being overcharged by their doctors. Bernice works closely with the New York State Attorney General's office on other ways to combat elder fraud and abuse.

 

Bernice was inducted into the Westchester County Senior Citizens Hall of Fame in 2002 and designated “Woman of the Year” by the Westchester County Federation of Women’s Clubs in 2003. She was selected as the 2004 recipient of the Rose Kryzak Advocacy Award by the NYS Senior Action Council.

 

Legislator Spreckman and her husband Harry have been married for over 40 years. They have three adult children and seven grandchildren.
