Changes in Independent Party Roster for Village Election
Following the decision of Trustee Jack O’Brien not to seek reelection, the Independent Party
of Malverne announced that their slate for the 2021 Malverne Village Elections will be Deputy
Mayor Perry Cuocci and former Deputy Mayor Patricia Canzoneri-Fitzpatrick.
Mayor Keith Corbett stated that, “The Village is very grateful to have had the dedication and
expertise of Jack O’Brien as Trustee for the past 12 years. We are fortunate to have Perry and
Patricia willing to serve and continue the high level of professional skill that residents expect.”
Deputy Mayor Perry Cuocci, who is running for re-election as Trustee, was originally elected
in 2017 after being appointed by Mayor Patti McDonald. In addition to acting as Board liaison to the
Office of Emergency Management and the Malverne Merchants & Professional Association, Perry is
a long serving officer of the Malverne Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Following a 20-year career with
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), he recently joined the security department of Con Edison.
“Malverne is a special little place, a refuge in the middle of a much chaos. All of the community
involvement and dedicated volunteers we have help to keep Malverne strong. I’m eager to continue
to work hard for all of our residents and continue our many accomplishments.”
Patricia Canzoneri-Fitzpatrick brings extensive financial and municipal experience to the
position, having been both a member of the Nassau County Sewer and Storm Water Finance
Authority and Trustee and Deputy Mayor under Mayor McDonald. In Malverne she has held
positions of Police and Fire Commissioner, in addition to Youth Board and Merchants liaison.
Patricia is a Certified Public Accountant and a partner in the Canzoneri & Canzoneri law firm. “I
look forward to continuing to serve my community. Each of us has skills that complement the others
on the Board in order to achieve great results. Malverne is a great place to live and I want to ensure
that it remains that way for my four children.”
Past Mayor Patti-Ann McDonald said, “After working with Perry and Patricia for many
years, I am proud to support them in this election.” She continued, “It’s great for the Village to have
their knowledge, passion, and integrity to help keep Malverne strong for the future.” She added, “I
join with Mayor Corbett, Trustees O’Brien, Touchard, Sullivan, and Judge Frankie in offering our
Malverne Village Elections will be held on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at the Malverne Fire
Department on Broadway.
