Ellen McCollister

Ms. McCollister served two terms on Ithaca’s Common Council, devoting her time primarily to planning, zoning, economic development, and historic preservation issues. She was formerly director of external relations at the College of Architecture, Art & Planning at Cornell University, and later held a similar position at the Johnson Art Museum. Newly retired, she’s looking forward to spending more time on musical and artistic pursuits and engaging with the Ithaca community.
