Sabatino on Robertson’s Yonkers City Council change of heart

0

Former Yonkers Councilman Dennis Robertson has re-entered the race for the council’s Third District seat despite saying that his heart wasn’t in the race after he was nominated on May 23.

Third District candidate Michael Sabatino, one of several Democrats seeking the seat, said today in a press release that he will run against Robertson in the September primary.

I am optimistic and confident that the voters of the diverse Third Council District will make the best choice in the Democratic Primary for the Democratic Candidate, and that in the end, I will be selected as the next Councilmember.

I think it’s unfortunate that Dennis Robertson – who after saying his heart was not in the race and was not going to run, does not seem to really want to serve on the Council – as he has now reentered the race one more time.

I believe that the City and our district will be well served by my commitment, experience and energy to the community. My priorities are improving the our education system,  strengthening our city with responsible development and encouraging business and job growth.

I have been honored to receive the endorsements of the Working Families Party and the Independence Party.  I look forward to the September 13 primary and the opportunity to serve.
