Harrison, Rye Brook, Port Chester


 

Nancy Barr was elected to the Westchester County Legislature in November of 2017. She represents District 6: Port Chester, Rye Brook and most of Harrison.


In her two decades in Westchester County, Nancy has demonstrated a clear and consistent commitment to investing in her community. Nancy is the current Vice President of the Council of Community Services of Rye Town, Port Chester and Rye Brook, a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring together local leaders and stakeholders to assess and meet the vital needs of the community.  She has been instrumental in finding local solutions to community challenges via advocacy and mobilization.


From 2009-2015, Nancy was a member of the Blind Brook Board of Education, including terms as Vice President and President. During her tenure she negotiated union contracts and oversaw yearly budgets of approximately $40 million. When Signature Flight took the Town of Rye to court to claim tax exemption—which would have cost local taxpayers millions of dollars—Nancy worked with representatives from the Village, Town and County to stop the action.


She also serves on the Facilities Committee for the Blind Brook School District. She is a member of the Rye Brook Airport Advisory Committee. And for over a decade, Nancy has been coordinating meals for the St. Peter’s Church Soup Kitchen in Port Chester.


After earning her Bachelor of Arts from Colgate University, Nancy worked for the American Kennel Club in their Education and Public Affairs department. She later graduated from Yale Law School where she volunteered in the Yale Law Immigration Clinic. She spent a summer at the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) Children’s Rights Project. Before moving to Westchester, Nancy was a Trusts and Estates attorney at the Manhattan law firm Milbank Tweed Hadley and McCloy.


Nancy was born in Queens and grew up in Stony Brook, Long Island. She and her husband Tom Kratochvil live in Rye Brook and have two children.
