Get to Know Julie Killian, Republican Candidate for Lieutenant Governor PDF Print Email

By Staff


Oct 24, 2018:  Long-time Rye resident and former Rye councilmember Julie Killian is the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor in New York. She is running with Marcus Molinaro, the Republican candidate for governor. They are running against Democratic incumbents Andrew Cuomo and Kathy Hochul in the general election on November 6.

Background

Julie Killian was born in Mount Vernon and grew up in Connecticut. The second of six children, she spent her summers in high school running a summer camp and waitressing to save for college. She went on to Notre Dame, received an MBA from NYU, and worked in the financial industry including as a Wall Street trader until the third of her five children was born.

At that time, Killian began volunteering and raising money for local causes. She was particularly concerned about drug use by young people and worked on a drug-free community grant for Rye, which resulted in education and training and “helped galvanize the community.” Killian served on the Rye City Council from 2012 to 2017 and was deputy mayor for two of those years.

Why Run for Lieutenant Governor?

According to Killian, she is running because she believes there are a lot of challenges in the state and there are solutions, but we “need people who have the guts to push on the status quo.”

What are the Key Issues and Solutions?

Killian thinks one of the key issues is the affordability of living and working in New York. “It’s become so expensive for people to live here and do business here,” she said. “Parents leave. Kids can’t come back.” She notes that the expense of living here or having a business here can be very stressful.

Killian’s ideas include: 1) lowering property taxes by moving Medicaid costs from the county to the state level, (2) lowering construction costs by getting rid of laws like the “Scaffolding Law” that result in huge costs, (3) reducing corruption across this state, (4) creating more accountability for taxpayer dollars and (5) helping small business. 

Killian is also interested in workforce development and education. She is concerned that the state doesn’t have enough skilled workers and is in favor of more vocational training and working with community colleges to train workers.

She is also against the legalization of recreational marijuana. Killian points out that it has had a very negative impact on states like Colorado, where teen usage, crime, and traffic fatalities are up.

Killian says she is coming at this “from the point of view of a citizen and mother looking for results."

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
