About Yvette

Yvette Valdes Smith for State Senate bio image

Raised in Puerto Rico by her mother, a school teacher, and her father, a small business owner, Yvette Valdés Smith learned early on the value of service and giving back to her community.

As a former public-school teacher and proud union member, Yvette currently serves her neighbors as Minority Leader of the Dutchess County Legislature. She has proposed legislation to reduce the county sales tax, to cut property taxes and to protect our environment. Yvette is committed to making government accessible for all and to pass legislation that improves everyone’s quality of life.

In addition to her work in the legislature, Yvette also serves on the Executive Board of Directors for Stony Kill Farm and on the Advisory Committee for Vote Mama.

Yvette lives in Fishkill with her husband and two sons, who are enrolled in local public schools.
