Eleanor Ryan

Candidate for Region 8 Regional Coordinator on the New York Union Proud Slate

Eleanor has been a PEF member for 22 years working at the Department of Tax and Finance currently serving in the title of Tax Regulations Specialist Ii. She has been a convention delegate for almost 10 years. She became more involved in union issues 3 years ago when she actively called for her departmental caucus meeting to be reconvened after delegates were bullied into voting without proper information in order to vote intelligently. She coordinated the effort to reach out to department delegates and was successful in obtaining the necessary 2/3 signatures of the delegates needed to reconvene the meeting. At the reconvened meeting the fellow delegates once provided with the facts overwhelmingly voted to change the original vote they were railroaded into making.

As a regional coordinator Eleanor will continue to be a voice for the members, she will keep members informed, and will be there to assist and represent them. She believes it is time this union's leaders to act as a unified force against opposition rather than the internal strife and squabbles that keeps representatives from doing the work of the members. Her educational background is in accounting which includes a BS in Accounting from Siena College and a MS in Accounting from The College of Saint Rose. She will account for member's monies efficiently, effectively and with transparency. Eleanor served on the board of the Association of State Tax Examiners for 5 years, serving as President for 2 years and Vice President for 1, planning and organizing the annual 3 day conference for 100-150 members. She is a vocal, honest, hardworking leader who will work with integrity for you the members. Vote for Eleanor and NY Union Proud to bring a unified leadership with integrity to PEF to represent YOU!
