2012 Grand Marshal – Maureen Basdavanos

Maureen is the oldest daughter of Michael and Mary Moran.  She has served as Deputy Mayor for the City of Glen Cove, for the past four years, appointed by Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi in 2008.

Maureen was born and raised in Sea Cliff, NY.  She received her education at St. Boniface Martyr School, North Shore High School and The Katherine Gibbs School.  She became a member of the Ladies AOH in 2010.  It seemed like a natural progression since the AOH has been a major part of her life since she was a child.  She is a member of St. Patrick’s Parish, but also keeps her childhood parish of St. Boniface Martyr close at heart.

Maureen is a member of the Board of Directors for Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. and a Board member for the Glen Cove Business Improvement District (BID), the Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Sounds Committee, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commission and is a long-time supporter of the Glen Cove Animal Lover’s League.  She was an active member of the Glen Cove High School Booster Club volunteering with her husband Bill to photograph and report weekly on all JV and Varsity sports.  She was also a long-time volunteer Cheerleading Coach for Glen Cove Jr. Football and Cheerleading and a Cub Scout leader.

Maureen is married to Bill Basdavanos, Ex-Chief of the Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Dept.  They have two children – Sean Michael who lives in Long Beach and owns a dessert café in Rockville Center and Kelly Anne who is a senior at Our Lady of Mercy Academy and is looking forward to college next year.
