Councilwoman Dina M. De Giorgio (6th District)
First elected in November 2011, and re-elected in November 2015, Councilwoman Dina M. De Giorgio represents the 6th Council District of the Town of North Hempstead. This area comprises Port Washington, including the villages of Baxter Estates, Manorhaven, Port Washington North, and Sands Point. It also includes the villages of Flower Hill, Munsey Park, Plandome, Plandome Heights, and Plandome Manor.
The Councilwoman has been a resident of the Town of North Hempstead for 22 years. She and her husband, Joe D’Alonzo, have two children, both of whom graduated Paul D. Schreiber High School in Port Washington.
She graduated from Fordham University, Rose Hill Campus, Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Psychology in 1989 and graduated Fordham University Law School in 1992 and was admitted to the Bar in 1993. In 1995, Dina established her law practice, and from 1996 through 1999 she served as an adjunct professor of law at the New York Institute of Technology.
Dina formerly served as a member of the Legal Resource Network where she served the public as a pro bono attorney for the Nassau County Coalition for Domestic Violence. Dina is also a member of the New York State Bar Association and the Nassau County Women’s Bar Association.
A motivated, candid, and synergetic professional with over 25 years of experience working in law, Dina De Giorgio is a well-respected and enthusiastic public servant achieving distinct positive results around Port Washington and the Manhasset Peninsula. She has taken steps to promote efficiency, such as launching Portal 2 Port, the first of its kind website which lists information and recent events that is useful for residents and visitors alike. In an effort to promote transparency Dina successfully pushed for the public streaming of all town board meetings. To foster accountability within government, Dina advocated for budget voting being done before Election Day.
In 2016, after many years of Dina’s advocating and collaboration with the community Alvan O. Petrus Park was built. Tobacco 21, a vital piece of legislation to the community, was set in motion by Dina’s efforts to address youth vaping. After Dina learned from her community that ATV riders were destroying the local natural preserve Hempstead Harbor Woods, she took action and successfully worked to ban ATVs within the Town of North Hempstead. Later, Dina revitalized the natural preserve through her collaboration with C.L.I.M.B., a grassroots organization dedicated to protecting and sustaining the environment and created mountain bike and hiking trails in the natural reserve. This successful public-private partnership has allowed for the development of around 5 miles worth of new hiking and mountain biking trails for public use without the expenditure of public funds. Dina is an active part of the bipartisan effort to oppose New York City’s reopening of the Queens Wells, which could adversely affect the water quality of Port Washington and Manhasset.
Dina considers public service to be a privilege and a responsibility to the community, and she is committed to ensuring the transparency and accountability of government. She is honored to serve the Port Washington and Manhasset Peninsula communities.
