Dawn Mackey has long been active in her community. From her days growing up in Brooklyn, to living as a young mother in Hoboken, to spending the last 12 years in Westfield as both parent and local entrepreneur, Dawn has stepped up time and again. Now, she will step up once more to run for Town Council, Fourth Ward.
In addition to running her own businesses and raising her kids, Dawn has immersed herself in volunteer work in Westfield. She’s chaired annual committees for the YMCA Preschool, Lincoln School and McKinley Elementary School. As an active parent in PAL cheer and flag football, she spends most Saturdays on the field selling pretzels and collecting for coat and food drives. This year, Dawn helped PAL renegotiate practice space, saving almost $2,000.
