Community activist Vicki Walsh took her Oath of Office as an Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman in January 2020. An East Norwich resident for 20 years and mother of three children, Vicki has great love for our community and programs that benefit young people. Although she is a communications professional and real estate agent, Vicki is best known in our community for successfully expanding programs available to children and teens while also nurturing relationships between residents of all ages.
As a Councilwoman, Vicki Walsh has voted consistently to hold the line on property taxes – never raise them. She has pursued cost-saving initiatives, increased funding for road repaving and approved historic reforms to protect taxpayers’ wallets. To improve the quality of life in our community, Vicki has delivered beautification projects for our downtowns, removed eyesores from local neighborhoods, and invested in park upgrades for seniors and families to enjoy.
Vicki believes in giving back to the community she loves so much. She serves as an adviser to Youth Club 4:12 at St. Dominic Roman Catholic Church and to the Girl Scouts of Nassau County. Vicki is working with the America’s VetDogs to raise awareness of this non-profit organization that supports disabled veterans and first responders. She has long supported our hometown heroes through a Veterans Day Dinner in Oyster Bay which recognizes the brave men and women of our United States Armed Forces for their sacrifices.
Volunteerism is a passion for Vicki Walsh. She is a past president of her local elementary school Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) and served on both the high school Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) and PTA Council Board. Through her past volunteer efforts with the Boys & Girls Club of Oyster Bay-East Norwich, Vicki spearheaded new programs to benefit children and increase awareness of the facility. She continues to act as a liaison between residents, schools, groups and businesses. Vicki loves the Town of Oyster Bay and is proud of all it has to offer. She is a firm believer that each day we are given an opportunity for positive change and improvements and she prides herself with being the ‘go-to person to help get the job done.’ Vicki brings these positive traits to the Oyster Bay Town Board.
Vicki is a graduate of St. John’s University and worked in the investment banking industry before entering the world of communications. She spent seven years as an Assistant Director and Event Management Coordinator at a public relations firm before entering the field of real estate.
