Lisa Eidel is a Wyckoff Mom and an ad sales associate for Wyckoff Living Magazine. Lisa spent the majority of her professional career in marketing/advertising for the pharmaceutical industry before taking on her most challenging job; stay at home Mom!
As an Associate Director of a Multiple Sclerosis product at Bayer Healthcare, she gained financial expertise by managing a $14M budget, honed her negotiating and communication skills by leading multiple projects, and successfully ran her Pharmaceutical Sales Rep territory.
She graduated with a B.A. in Political Science, with a minor in History, from Long Island University. It was when she was offered the position of undergraduate assistant to the Chairman of the Political Science Dept., that she discovered her passion for politics.
Lisa’s major goal when elected to Township Committee is to focus on non-partisan and transparent leadership. Working across party lines in Wyckoff is something Lisa already has experience with. In July, 2019 despite legal and ideological pushback about flying the LGBTQ+ Pride Flag in front of Town Hall, Lisa proposed a solution that was amenable to both Democrats and Republicans. The proposal consisted of installing a new flagpole by Memorial Field (still within the Municipal Complex) on which to fly the LGBTQ+ Pride Flag. The resolution passed unanimously and the Pride flag will be raised in June, 2020.
Active in the Wyckoff Community, Lisa is a member of the Wyckoff Historical Society, Wyckoff Chamber of Commerce, Coolidge Elementary PTO and often volunteers within town (such as Economy Shop, Shredfest, Boy Scouts etc.).
Lisa believes that a key aspect to any great community is for residents to have their voices heard by non-partisan leaders and that those leaders make their decisions with transparency. This will be a focus of Lisa’s campaign. If you want Wyckoff to be even better than it already is because it operates with non-partisan leadership and transparency, she asks for your support in November.
Lisa has lived in Wyckoff for 15 years with her wife, Kelly and 2 sons (Hudson, 8 and Finn, 5).
