Peter DeLucia has dedicated his career to public service. Since his initial election in 2005, he has brought an extensive knowledge of public administration, environmental regulations and code enforcement to the Town Board. With his commitment to the practical, fair and effective enforcement of Town regulations, Peter has been regarded as one of Lewisboro's most experienced and hardest working Council members. During the multiple Hurricane's and major storm events that have left many Lewisboro residents without power Peter has not only tirelessly advocated on residents behalf for quick restoration and for NYSEG to provide adequate resources to our Town, prior, during and after the events but personally goes out in the field to asses damage and speak directly with crews on the scene. His unique combination of educational, professional and volunteer experience along with a never ending drive to support our community makes him an invaluable asset for our town government.
Peter’s efforts over the past 11+ years were key to the successful completion of projects including the Town Pool renovations, ADA compliant construction at the Little League field in Town Park including the Press Box and Snack Bar, the implementation of a more user-friendly regulatory process for both homeowners and local businesses, spear-heading the private fund raising campaign to save the Town Fireworks display that continues to offset the cost of the event year after year, facilitating the installation of environmentally friendly waterless urinals and a composting toliet facility at the Town Pool and our Town Parks, and fostering the legislation for a construction of a cell towers on Town land where the revenues are a direct savings for the tax payers of Lewisboro! Peter continuously takes a leadership role in the budget process supporting fiscal conservatism. He also suggested and helped implement a budget and a professional engineering plan that has delivered a phased approach to repair and maintain our Town roads. Peter has been instrumental in bringing in new sustainable revenue streams such as mobile communications, Lacrosse and soccer tournaments and our first ever Sunday Morning Car Show at Onatru Farm. With a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and over 20 years in County Government, Peter pledges to use his knowledge and expertise to make sound decisions for Lewisboro.
In January of 2006 Peter began the first year of a 4 year term as Councilman and has continually garnered respect from his constituents, Town Officials, Supervisors, and fellow Board Members. Peter was re-elected in 2009 to serve a second term as Councilman and again for a third term in 2013. In 2010 Peter was appointed Deputy Supervisor by Supervisor Charlie Duffy and has retained that title during the entire term of the current Democrat Supervisor Peter Parsons.

Before his election to the Town Board in 2005, Peter served on the Town’s Conservation Advisory Council from 2002 to September 2003. From 2003 to 2006 he was a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals, where his fairness, dedication and common sense garnered praise from both colleagues and the homeowners who appeared before him.
When West Nile Virus initially became a public health hazard, Peter was a Team Leader and Quality Control Supervisor during the seasonal West Nile Larviciding and Surveillance program. Peter responded to sensitive community complaints, including from lake associations concerned about larviciding in storm water catch basins close to their lakes. As a media spokesperson for the program, he has appeared on Inside Edition, CBS, ABC, and Channel 12. In addition, he has supervised the Administrative Hearing Office, Lead Primary prevention, West Nile Virus & Adolescent Tobacco Use Prevention Act Programs of the Westchester County Department of Health, & trained Food Service and Children’s Camp Inspectors.
Peter also enjoys promoting local events and businesses by hosting various informational shows on Lewisboro's own public access Cable Channel LCTV channel 20. You can see him host such shows as "Dining Out in Lewisboro" and "Inside Lewisboro Town Government". In the fall of 2010 Peter had the opportunity to appear on the Dr. Oz Show in a segment called "Would your Kitchen Pass Inspection?" as a seasoned Westchester County Food Service Inspection Officer. Dr. Oz invited him back for a second appearance in the spring of 2011 to discuss "Second Hand Health Hazards" and how to avoid them. Peter teamed up with Dr. Oz once again in October of 2011 to uncover "Hidden Hazards in your Home". Since then Peter has become a regular recurring guest on the Dr. Oz Show and enjoys having the opportunity to promote public health topics to a national audience. Peter is routinely called upon by the major networks as an expert to discuss current issues pertaining to public health.
Peter and his wife Kim have lived in Vista for over 22 years, where they have pursued their passion for sports and the outdoors, and have been active members of the community.

"I am pleased to lend my voice in support of the candidacy of Peter DeLucia for re-election to the Town Board of the town of Lewisboro. On the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) we were fortunate to have Pete as a ZBA member. He served with distinction on the ZBA, lending his keen insight and calm analysis to our deliberations.
I have followed his career since he left us to become a member of the Town Board. Once again he serves with distinction. Though Town Board issues differ in many respects from ZBA issues, Pete DeLucia’s voice of reason is clearly evident in his continued service to the people of the town of Lewisboro.
His record speaks more eloquently than I. He deserves our support and re-election to the Lewisboro Town Board."

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
