Veronica Lurvey Town of North Hempstead Receiver of taxes Democrat

A native of the North Shore, Veronica Lurvey is now a councilwoman representing District 4 of the Town of North Hempstead, having been elected to a four-year term in 2019. She is running for the receiver of taxes.

Lurvey’s parents immigrated to the United States in 1965 as political refugees from Czechoslovakia. She and her husband are raising their children in Great Neck.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of Chicago and graduated on the Dean’s List of the Georgetown University Law Center.

Lurvey worked at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP from 1994 to 2012, first as a legal assistant, and then rising to the position of counsel, while raising two sons.

At Skadden, she led teams on a variety of corporate finance, banking, and restructuring transactions, as well as advising companies on their disclosure obligations to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

She was a member of the Village of Kensington Zoning Board of Appeals. She also served the co-founder and former co-president of North Shore Action, a non-partisan community action group that advocates on local, largely bipartisan issues such as pedestrian safety, mental health, gun safety and protection of the local environment.  

She served Temple Israel of Great Neck as a member of the executive committee and as vice president of programming.

Before moving to Great Neck, she was also elected co-president of the Parent Teacher Association of the Solomon Schechter School of Queens where she also served on the board.

After moving to Great Neck, she has been involved in the PTA and was part of the team redrafting the mission and vision statements of the Schechter School of Long Island. 

Lurvey said as receiver of taxes she would:

  1. Prioritize making the receiver’s office more accessible for residents
  2. Expand tax workshops for non-native English speakers
  3. Mobilize tax collection units throughout the town.
