Hello New Paltzians!
I'm Maria (Davila), and the newest Gadfly. I'm pretty amped about it. In January 2010, I celebrated my three year anniversary of living in New Paltz. However, I celebrated by moving to Gardiner. I find myself overly involved in the politics of New Paltz, and involved just the right amount in random community goings-on. I'm a Senior at SUNY New Paltz, Majoring in Political Science (concentrating in Political Theory) and Minoring in Environmental Studies. You'll see a lot of the philosophical influence in my posts. Once I graduate in May, I'm going to stay in Gardiner, and work in my field.
I consider myself centrist. This means that when it comes to local issues, I'm likely to examine all sides (the left AND the right), and play devil's advocate. Chances are, that means every reader will love me AND hate me at different points in our strange internet relationship. It's a roller coaster, baby!
I'm looking forward to engaging in my civic duty here at Gadfly. See you all in the blogosphere!
