Maribeth’s Story

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Maribeth and Dan (Vietnam era veteran) moved to Brooklyn, NY with their newborn son in 1986.  With two young sons in tow, Kyle (two tours Afghanistan and one tour Kenya) and Ryan, the family moved to Highland Mills in 1988.  Two more “kinglets' ' were added to the brood, Colleen and Tom and the family remained in Highland Mills for the next 32 years.  Maribeth worked as the night nursing supervisor/hospital administrator for 23 years at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer. In 2011 she moved to the outpatient department at their 53rd St location.  In 2013 she assumed responsibility for the Westchester portfolio which included the Sleepy Hollow and the newly opened West Harrison locations as well as the contracted services at the Westchester Medical Center.   ​ In 1988 Monroe-Woodbury in Orange County, NY offered a good school system, affordable housing, commutable to the city, fresh air - simply a great place to raise a family.  There were no traffic signals on Route 32 or really in the town itself.  The area had lots of farmland - kids looked out at cows and horses as they rode the bus to school.  When we moved away 32 years later, it was a traffic nightmare, no farmland, expensive housing, and higher taxes to support new schools, expanded police force, etc.  Despite the growth in businesses and housing, our taxes never went down and quality of life improvements, well, were questionable.   ​ We moved to Marlborough in 2020 seeking that same rural environment with accessibility to a city and with a good school system  (even though all of their kids are way beyond that).  Becoming knowledgeable and involved in the town was a challenge during Covid.  Maribeth attended the Town Board meetings remotely and eventually in person.  She became an active member of the Marlborough Democratic Committee, elected to the position of Recording Secretary in 2022.  She accepted an appointment as a Trustee, Board of the Sarah Hull Hallock Free Library in 2019.  She is the Co-Chair of their capital campaign “Brick Fundraiser”, project manager for the current renovation and elected to the position of Vice-President in 2023.  This year Dan and Maribeth King are donating a three bay garage and a portion of the land adjacent to the Sands Avenue park to the town. ​ Maribeth is committed to preserving our legacy while planning for our future.   Highland Mills is only two exits away on the Thruway - let us not be priced out of our future.  Maribeth has the skill set, negotiating skills, and the energy needed to preserve our identity as we prepare for the future with a plan for calculated growth and development that benefits all members of our community.
