Donna, a Troy, N.Y. native, attended Junior College of Albany (now part of the Sage Colleges system). After college she trained as a legal secretary for Troy attorney, Seymour Fox, Esq. She moved to Boston in 1973 and worked as a real estate para-legal in the law firm of Choate, Hall & Stewart, Esqs. She changed careers, and with her chef partner, opened the restaurant L’Espalier in Back Bay Boston until 1988, when she moved to horse country in Charottesville, Virginia to raise her children. With her children grown, she and her husband decided to move to Mexico to experience that dream of living in a foreign country. They bought a fixer upper in the Pueblo Magico of Todos Santos, BCS, MX, where they lived for thirteen years. During her time in Mexico Donna volunteered with a Mexican non-profit, The Palapa Society of Todos Santos, A.C., as a board member, and went on to develop and direct an after-school English language program for community children. In 2016 she and her husband relocated to Schenectady, NY to help care for a family member suffering with dementia. Donna is the recording secretary for the Stockade Association; a board member of the Riverside Condominium Association, where she and her husband reside; and serves as an Election Inspector with the Schenectady County Board of Elections.

Keith has been a native to the Capital Region his entire life. Born in Schenectady, he has lived all over the region, including Clifton Park, Saratoga, Greenwich, Wilton, Duanesburg, Glenville and Elsmere, but moved to the Stockade in 2008. In a real sense, the move to live in Schenectady's Stockade District felt like coming home. A graduate of Clarkson College, Keith has had lengthy careers in Atmospheric Sciences and Broadcasting, both in an engineering capacity. Since retirement, he has furthered his interests in filmmaking, photography and local history. He is a current member of the Board and heads the Infrastructure Committee which has been instrumental in initiating the Streetscape Study. Keith has kindly offered his expertise for another term.
