Woman of the Year Honorees 2011
Women of the Year 2010 Honorees:
Ann R. Ocker and Linda Mangano
The former Town of Oyster Bay Councilwoman and Town Clerk Ann R. Ocker and the energetic wife of our new County Executive, Linda Mangano, were both honored as “Women of the Year” by the Nassau County Federation of Republican Women on April 29, 2010, at a sumptuous dinner held in the private party room of Jonathan’s Restaurant in New Hyde Park.
In celebration of 90 years of their dedicated service to the Nassau County GOP, the Republican women have triumphantly named two outstanding women to represent the Greatest Generation and the Next Generation of Republican Women to be our role models for this year’s most critical elections. Beginning with the leadership and trailblazing example of Ann R. Ocker, today’s Republican woman would be hard-pressed to keep up with Ann’s go-give attitude and service to her family, neighbors, Town and Country. The “battery-name” bunny would also have a hard time keeping up with the demanding family/work/ community service schedule of Linda Mangano. Both women pay homage to their volunteer organizational roots in the community, be it helping the air warden or fire department, or volunteering in the PTA and not-for-profit organizations. These courageous and hard-working women are the high standard which we all hope to achieve as optimistic and accomplished Republican Women.
Mrs. Ocker’s daughter, Jean Vogeley, and County Executive Ed Mangano and their sons, Sal and Alex, were all proud to witness the great women in their lives receive the honors they so deserve. Floral bouquets, lucky elephant watches and winged– eagle statues were formally presented by NYSFRW President Annette Collins-Ferrara, President Jodi Hollingshead and Federation Town of
Hempstead Chair Angela A. Powers. Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto and Councilwomen Beth Faughnan and Rebecca Alesi, together with other County Officials and candidates, came by to offer their congratulations and say hello to the Federation women.

Cell Phones for Soldiers Collected by Nassau County Federation of Republican Women
The Nassau County Federation of Republican Women continually collects cell phones for Cell Phones for Soldiers. Proceeds from donated phones are used to purchase prepaid calling cards for American soldiers. Rose Pelletiere of the federation has been spearheading this effort to help the thousands of men and women in our armed forces who are often called away from home for great lengths of time. The phone cards help make it easier for soldiers to connect with family and friends while serving our country.
