“She has a true gift in uniting people while maintaining a high level of integrity.”

I have known Cecelia for over 35 years as a respected colleague, dear friend, and advocate for justice and understanding the issues on so many levels. She has a true gift in uniting people while maintaining a high level of integrity. Her understanding and comprehension of issues gives her a unique approach in finding quick and respectful solutions. She is extremely articulate and always patient when presenting her rationale. Cecelia got her law degree while working as an active musician in the NYC area.  Her type of passion and dedication is what inspired me to move to NYC and join Local 802 in 1977.
