Olivia Drabczyk

New York City Council, District 51, NY

Olivia is a single mother and special education teacher with a background in mental health counseling and inclusive education. She lives in one of many multi-generational homes on the South Shore of Staten Island with her parents, sister, and son.

Olivia's public service has been in the classroom and her vision for New York City is one in which those mean something. She is committed to ensuring the South Shore of Staten Island receives its fair share of resources, representation, and support from City Hall, and is dedicated to developing greater political engagement and civic literacy across the district.

Olivia's top priorities include revitalizing restaurants and small businesses, increasing investments in free and affordable childcare and disability services, greater access to transportation and safer roads and sidewalks, and prioritizing trauma-informed approaches to addressing addiction, mental health struggles, and domestic violence.
