Extensive Experience

I am running for re-election in order to continue the work I have started, and to ensure that the people of Legislative District 2 have the voice they need.

Since starting my first term as a County Legislator in 2018, I voted for critical legislation to support our district including:

  • A ban on hiring questions regarding salary history, in order to ensure equal compensation for men and women
  • A sensible Immigration Protection Act to protect hard working law abiding immigrants in our community
  • A ban on Styrofoam containers, to better preserve our environment and open spaces
  • An end to gun shows on county property

I’ve also worked with all of our Town Supervisors and our Mayor to find solutions which make our towns more livable, our water safer, and our taxes lower. I have advocated for investments in our roads, our water infrastructure and our local county parks. I have helped our District find grants and creative funding solutions to help address problems and build our future, while remaining fiscally responsible by voting for a tax increase under the tax cap. I have worked for and with our non-profits, and found ways to better support our Veterans. I take my job as representing YOU seriously and have responded to your concerns and requests for help for everything ranging from the utilities’ responses to storms, to potholes on county roads and support for our volunteer first responders.

I hope to continue the job I have begun and ask for your vote this November.

Meet Kitley Covill

Kitley Covill grew up in Pound Ridge, and has been a Katonah resident since 1991. She was elected in November 2017 to the Westchester County Board of Legislators. She represents the county’s 2nd Legislative District, which includes the towns of Bedford (including Bedford Village, Bedford Hills and Katonah), Lewisboro (including South Salem, Cross River, Goldens Bridge, Waccabuc and Vista), Mt. Kisco, North Salem, Pound Ridge, and part of the town of Somers. Kitley chairs the Legislation and Social Services Committees, sits on six other legislative committees, and is a member of the Westchester County Board of Ethics and Police Safety Board.

Kitley served as an Assistant District Attorney in Nassau County, where she prosecuted organized criminal activity. She was then appointed to be part of an Organized Crime Task Force, serving as a special Assistant U.S. Attorney and a special Assistant Attorney General. She moved to Lewisboro in 1987 and became the town’s special prosecutor and an Assistant County Attorney in Westchester. Subsequently she became a planning board and then a zoning board member.

In 1991, Kitley moved with her family to Katonah and became a Legal Services attorney representing indigent families and children. She subsequently went into private practice in Katonah representing women and the elderly, as well as small businesses.

After ten years of private practice, Kitley went back to the Westchester County Attorney’s Office as the Chief of the Family Court Bureau, Supervising 35 attorneys and support staff. She then became the Inspector General for the City of Yonkers, the first ever woman ever to hold that position.

Kitley returned to the private sector in 2014, where she focuses on assisting victims of gender bias. She is also actively involved with the Westchester Women’s Bar Association, where she formerly Co-Chaired the Legislative Committee, served as Chair of the Criminal Law, Ethics and Domestic Violence Committees and was a State Director.

Kitley graduated from the Kenyon College and Vermont Law School and until late 2017, served as President of the Board of Directors for the YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester. She previously volunteered with the Community Center of Northern Westchester and the Katonah/Bedford Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
