About Deana Robinson
New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
My name is Deana Robinson and I am a 34 year old mother of two. I’ve lived in Yonkers for 27 years. When I think about District 1 and the city of Yonkers I think of my family, and the many families and people with whom I’ve grown up, the many businesses and business owners, new and old developments. District 1 is my home, and I’ve seen it transform over the years and look forward to being a part of the positive progression here in our city. Anyone who knows me, knows I love people and acts of servitude. Giving back and bettering our community has always been on my heart and instilled in me from childhood by my father Rev. William Norman Sr. and my mother Pastor Tamara Norman, and if elected I look forward to doing that on wider scale in my role as Councilmember of the first district.
I’ve worked for Councilwoman Shanae Williams in the first council district for the past 6 years, and I couldn’t be happier with the work that she’s done thusfar. I would be honored to continue serving you as your new council member for the first district. There are many important issues at hand, including housing, jobs, furthering job equality, diversity, education, the development, creation and sustainability of small businesses and so much more. I plan to continue addressing and fighting for all of these issues, while working hard to make sure that we, the people, continue to be heard, supported, and seen. My personal motto has always been to inspire, uplift, and inform and I will continue to do so to the best of my ability, leading with love and integrity while advocating for the best interests of the residents in the first district. One public servant cannot change everything, but a community on one accord can make all the difference.
