Prior to moving here, Steven had spent 25 years enjoying the great Town of Yorktown with his wife’s family. Steve’s career as a Project Manager and Corporate Trainer for the largest legal solutions firm in the world has brought him experience in collaboration, accountability, transparency, and compromise. Over the years he has been tasked with managing global projects for some of the largest law firms, acting as a subject matter expert in various areas, and developing and implementing internal certification programs. In addition to these skills, Steve brings valuable leadership experience he developed as an Eagle Scout. Steve has always believed in public service, and living here has inspired him to serve the people of Yorktown.
Tom is a 20-year resident of Yorktown. He and his wife Marni moved to Yorktown for its beauty and open spaces and are proud parents of a Yorktown High School student.

In addition to teaching, he also serves as a Building Representative for the Graham School Federation of Teachers and is a member of the Union’s Executive Committee. Tom has always been a passionate advocate for union membership and engagement. Tom has a robust record of community service and leadership within the Scouting community in Yorktown, serving as a Scoutmaster and is currently an Assistant Scoutmaster for a local Yorktown troop. In that role and as part of his love for the outdoors, Tom can often be found hiking the local trails that are so much a part of our beautiful area.
YDC Co-Chair Mark A. Lieberman said: “The election of these candidates will mark a significant change of direction for our town’s government by electing people that bring a fresh perspective, new ideas, compassion, and the energy needed to meet the challenges we face in 2023 and beyond.”
Town Clerk Diana Quast is seeking re-election to the position of Clerk for the Town of Yorktown. Having previously served as Deputy Town Clerk in the Town of Yorktown since 2003 and elected as Town Clerk in 2016, Quast has been helping others over the past 23 years of her public service career. As a 40-year plus resident of the Town and serving the people for 20 years, Quast is eager to show voters why she should be given the opportunity to continue to do so. With constant changes to law and procedures that make the Town Clerk’s office an important office for all residents, there are initiatives and programs begun during Quast’s tenure she is looking forward to continuing and expanding on.
