2 Candidates Endorsed for the TA Board; Other TA Members May Petition


The Board of Directors of the STPCV Tenants Association endorses two candidates for positions on the board as recommended by the Nominating Committee. The election date is May 23, 2023.

Candidates endorsed by the Board include:

Ana Lombardo: A longtime STPCV resident and a Building Leader for the TA, Ana is proud to have been part of the effort to shut down the fossil fuel Combined Heat and Power plants management planned for the property. Most recently, she co-founded ARRFF (Association of Responsible Residents & Furry Friends of STPCV) to try to address the needs and assimilation of the rising number of households that include pets into the STPCV community. Ana is a filmmaker and prop and set dressing foreperson for television and major motion picture studios, including HBO, Showtime, Netflix, Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., and Columbia Pictures.

Susan Steinberg (incumbent): Currently president of the Stuyvesant Town–Peter Cooper Village Tenants Association, Susan spent her career as marketing director for major architectural and engineering firms in New York City. Elected to the board of the TA in 1996, she served in several officer’s roles before being elected president in 2015. Susan is a member of Community Board 6, serving on the Housing and Homeless, Business Affairs and Licensing, and Land Use and Waterfront Committees. Other community activities include the East Side Coastal Resiliency Construction Advisory Committee and the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center Community Advisory Committee. In 2013, Susan received a Woman of Distinction award from New York State Senator Brad Hoylman, and in 2019 and 2022, from New York State Assembly Member Harvey Epstein.
