MEET THE PRESIDENT: DR. UNA.S.T. CLARKE

The Hon. Una S.T. Clarke, the first Caribbean-born woman elected to the New York City's legislature, is a proven and dedicated leader whose hard work and tireless advocacy have brought remarkable changes to her community.

Born in the parish of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, West Indies, Dr. Clarke migrated to the United States as a foreign student in 1958. She was elected in 1991 and during her 10 years tenure she sponsored more than 300 pieces of legislation on a wide range of issues including child welfare, education, health and mental health issues, economic development, public safety and transportation.

Her portfolio in the Council included committees on Aging, Youth Services, Economic Development, Health and Mental Health, and General Welfare. She also chaired the Council's committee on Mental Health, Mental Retardation, Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. She was an active member of the Council's Black and Hispanic Caucus.

Dr. Clarke directed millions of dollars for education, health and mental health, economic development to her district, and pursued the implementation of critical projects and programs through her ability to win help and support from labor, government, community and business leaders. An educator by profession, she has leveraged millions of dollars to upgrade schools in her district, and have made them technologically ready for the 21st century with computer labs in every school and a model program for multi-media instruction. Dr. Clarke also fought to expand services for the elderly, rebuild parks and playgrounds and increase quality childcare programs.The Progressive Democrats Political Association is an active group of concerned citizens and community leaders.
