About Damon Maher
County Legislator Damon Maher is running again to represent the people of Eastchester, Tuckahoe, and half of New Rochelle for a third term.
In his first three years in office, Damon helped to enact laws, policies, and budgetary appropriations that made big improvements for his constituents. Damon worked hard to increase equitable availability of housing for all demographics, protect low wage workers and immigrants, reduce access to guns, improve roads, bridges, and wastewater recovery facilities, and increase investment in quality daycare, and provide for those most impacted by the pandemic.
His priorities in 2021 and beyond include preserving our majestic park system and promoting environmental protection in general. In every budget, Damon is committed to maximizing our precious county resources for residents in Eastchester and New Rochelle. Overall, Damon is focused on taking measures to make public safety a reality for all county residents!
Damon is a lifelong Westchester County resident, born in Yonkers, and has lived in Hastings-on-Hudson, West Harrison, Larchmont and, since 1994, New Rochelle. He is a managing partner in a small law firm that concentrates on employee rights and civil litigation.
