Meet Carm

A lifelong Trojan, Carmella was born in the North Central, before her family moved to Lansingburgh where she attended high school.

While her career in public service took her to communities throughout the state, Carmella has never left Troy. Today, Carmella and her husband of 30 years Paul Laviano live in Sycaway and are the proud parents of two boys Pauly and James.  

As the proud daughter of a decorated Troy Police detective, Carmella has always had a deep appreciation for the importance of public safety and an abiding respect for the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. “Public safety is the first and most important responsibility of the government and as Mayor, I will work day and night to ensure that our police and fire have the personnel and the resources to get the job done,” Carmella says.
