When times are tough, Patricia Canzoneri-Fitzpatrick answers the call to serve and steps up to lead.
An accomplished attorney, small business owner, lifelong resident of Malverne and mother of four, Patricia was living her American Dream when the unthinkable happened: her husband Jim passed away suddenly.
Trusting Patricia to continue Jim’s legacy, Malverne’s Mayor Patti Ann McDonald named Patricia to complete his unfinished term on the Village Board and, later, to serve as Deputy Mayor, Budget Director, Police and Fire Commissioner.
In Village government, Patricia focused on quality of life issues, holding the line on taxes and public safety. She continues to serve as President of the Detective Steven McDonald Memorial Corp.
Once again, Patricia is answering the call of her community by running for State Senate. As our Senator, Patricia will fight against “Defund the Police” and to repeal the disastrous bail laws written by our current Senator.
As our voice in Albany, Patricia will push to protect STAR and deliver tax relief to Middle Class Long Island families, for more state funding for Nassau’s world-class public schools and more accountability and common sense in state government.
With taxes through the roof, criminals set free on our street and our suburban quality of life under attack, we need Patricia fighting for us in the State Senate more than ever.
Patricia is a graduate of New York University School of Law, St. John’s University School of Law and College of Business Administration, and Maria Regina High School and Malverne Public Schools. She has had an accomplished career at Deloitte & Touche, LLP and Morgan Lewis & Bockius. Patricia lives in Malverne with her husband, Kevin, and children, Thomas, Katherine, Elizabeth and Christina.
