The New York Post today endorsed Rob Astorino for county executive. In its editorial, the paper owned by Rupert Murdoch cited high taxes and spending as reasons for ousting County Executive Andrew Spano, a Democrat.
They liked Astorino, a Republican, because of his plans to have employees kick-in for health-care and pension costs, merging duplicative agencies and consolidating government services.
“Having a fiscally responsible executive to attack Westchester’s out-of-control tax burden could take a huge load off taxpayers’ shoulders. Which is why Westchester voters should pull the lever for Rob Astorino next Tuesday.”
