Susie Veglia, Independent Candidate for Council at Large in Bay St. Louis
As a CPA of 24 years with 17 years of governmental experience, I can do this job and I want to help. My background includes financial and human resources management, and economic and community development. I know the authority and limitations of a governing body and our duty to proceed ethically and transparently. That way the many are deciding instead of the few alone.
I was raised with my seven siblings in Long Beach and know what it means means to share, to be close and supportive. In family as in community, we need each other! With a desire to give back, it has been my pleasure to share my talents on five local nonprofit boards.
After college and traveling abroad, Hancock County became my home in 1984. My work with Port and Harbor Commission from 1999 – 2016 solidified my strong commitment to work in and for the community. As with many others, it was scary to build in the Bay after Katrina, but I had a vision and stayed the course.
I love this strong, diverse city and claim all of it with pride. Please vote for me on June 6th for council at large.
