Dorey Houle

My husband, Anthony, and I moved our family from Staten Island to Monroe in 2014.

Prior to our move, I was a full-time lecturer and director of the American Sign Language (ASL) program in the Department of World Languages and Literatures at the City University of New York/College of Staten Island. As director of the ASL program, I researched, authored, and attained approval for the academic minor in American Sign Language.

As a solution-oriented person, I became involved in the politics of the Town of Monroe, walking my neighborhood to collect signatures for qualified candidates and attending United Monroe fundraisers.

I was raised with the belief that each of us has a responsibility to give back to our community. Working with children at the Monroe Free Library teaching sign language and supporting our parish, Sacred Heart, and the veterans at the American Legion Post 488 are just some of the ways I do this.

Monroe has a natural beauty that is unmatched in any other community. I believe that with thoughtfulness and careful planning we can continue to make the Village of Monroe a place each of us is proud to call home.

As the wife of a retired combat veteran, I have learned to manage many responsibilities. With my personal and professional experiences, I am certain I can serve the Village of Monroe as a Trustee with professionalism and vigor.
