LD 2 MapBiography:

Siela A. Bynoe became Nassau County Legislator for the Second Legislative District after winning a February 11 special election to fill a vacancy left by Robert Troiano in early 2014. Siela is a 40-year resident of Nassau County and Westbury resident.

Legislator Siela Bynoe is a graduate of Westbury High School, has an Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts from Nassau County Community College, Bachelor's in Psychology from Hofstra University and Master's in Public Administration from C.W.Post, Long Island University. Siela has a diverse career background that has allowed her to work in the private and public sectors, as well as not-for-profit.

Siela's work in the private sector included workings as mortgage loan consultant and a credit loan officer, where she administered her bank's commitment to the Community Reinvestment Act. She then moved on to work for the Long Island Housing Partnership and established their Nassau County branch in Hempstead. It was there that Siela helped secure and disburse $3 million in aid for first-time home buyers over three years, and began to be a housing advocate. She then entered the public sector, where she became Assistant Director of the North Hempstead Housing Authority, and then moved on to become Executive Director of Huntington Housing Authority in 2006. Siela also served until recently as a Commissioner for the North Hempstead Housing Authority. Working in housing, Siela has worked with her colleagues to secure over $40 million to rehabilitate some of Long Island's oldest affordable communities.

Siela has not only worked for better housing for all, but she is also an education advocate in her community. Legislator Bynoe was twice elected as a Trustee for the Westbury School Board where she has been committed to providing better educational opportunities for the youngest members of her community. During Siela's tenure on the school board, she has helped to implement smart fiscal policies which have saved Westbury taxpayers $3.8 million. Such savings kept the district's quality standards while also helping to keep working families in the Westbury community. Also, during Siela's tenure, graduation rates increased by 10 percent. Legislator Bynoe was ceremonially sworn in as Nassau County Legislator by local Bishop Lionel Harvey on February 24, 2014.

Legislator Siela Bynoe is excited to serve following in the footsteps of her predecessor Robert Troiano. Siela intends to make health issues, government accessibility, economic development and affordable housing a priority focus. She looks forward to serving the great communities of Hempstead, Lakeview,Westbury, New Cassel, Hicksville, Uniondale, Rockville Centre and East Garden City. Legislator Bynoe serves on the following legislative committees; Minority Affairs (Ranking), Health & Social Services, Government Services & Operations and Economic & Community Development.
