Rosemarie Mangano Cavanagh joins Historic Richmond Town Board

July 1, 2017 - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has named Rosemarie Mangano Cavanagh as the Mayor’s representative on the Board of Directors of the Staten Island Historical Society at Historic Richmond Town.

Ms. Cavanagh comes to the Board of Directors with a long list of community service: US Air Force Family Services; Staten Island University Hospital; Board of Governors; American Committee of Italian Migration; Teamsters Union local 832 and 237, as well as the South Shore Democratic Club to which she was elected as the first female President. She is currently a member of the executive board of The New York State Women’s Organization, president of the South Shore Democratic Club, and a district leader for the Democratic County Committee.

 Ms. Cavanagh is a retiree from the New York City Office of School Food, culminating more than 20 years of service to the City as Supervisor, Staff Dietitian, Educator and Manager, where her primary goal was always the welfare of the children. Ms. Cavanagh is a graduate of the New York Institute of Dietetics, and author of a monthly periodical in the Air Force newspaper called Diets and Delights.

Ms. Cavanagh is the founder and president of Staten Island 4 A Cure, which dedicates its service to critically ill children on Staten Island, and is active with the ALS Association. Fundraisers are organized to help defray the cost of the medical expenses which are incurred by the families who are dealing with critical care, and provides free baseball tickets to local Public Schools every year since her husband passed away.

Ms. Cavanagh has received several awards for her outstanding community contributions: YMCA Volunteer of the Year; Democrat of the Year Award; SIDA Political Action Award; and first and second place for Public Relation’s Publications for the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Staten Island.

Historic Richmond Town is New York City’s only living history museum, where centuries of American life are preserved, presented and celebrated. The 100-acres are comprised of four separate sites on Staten Island, the greenest borough of New York City, and houses 27 historic structures, an archives and research library, and more than 60,000 artifacts. A designated not-for-profit cultural institution of the City of New York, Richmond Town is supported through corporate, government, and private philanthropy.
