Davie is an active, 16-year member of the Y, and is currently assistant town attorney for the Town of Kearny, as well as special counsel for the City of Bayonne and the Borough of North Arlington.
“The Y has always been active in our community,” said Davie. “Many of us either learned to swim through the Y and had our kids learn to swim at Lincoln School in Kearny, went to the Y summer camps at Camp Linwood in Blairstown or enjoyed the Y’s state of the art completely affordable fitness facility, which includes an Olympic size pool.”
“The Y, through its 2013 and beyond Strategic Plan, seeks to focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility in our West Hudson communities, and I am extremely grateful that this tremendous organization has allowed me to strive to accomplish these completely attainable goals,” said Davie.
Davie previously served as vice president of the Hudson- Liberty Boy Scouts of America and pro bono counsel for the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps, as well as a soccer coach for Kearny Recreation, Thistle F.C. and High Tech High School.
