Meet Kitley Covill

I am running for County Legislator because I want to stand up for what’s right, stand up for our values and stand up to the current climate in this country.

I believe we are better than this.

All politics is local, and it starts with the race for County Legislator. I want to fight to protect our most vulnerable: our beautiful natural resources and clean reservoirs, our children and families, our fire and ambulance volunteers, our neighbors. We have to fight to preserve our civil rights, our civil liberties, our opportunities for all to succeed.

I was raised in Pound Ridge and have lived in this area for thirty years. Today I work helping victims of gender based bias and volunteer in Katonah helping the neediest to get food and clothing. During my thirty plus years in public service I have learned how the County government works and how to get things done.

I will use my experience and passion to fight for everyone in our district.
