A lunchtime talk and demonstrators — with an update


Rep. Nan Hayworth, R-Mount Kisco, stopped in her backyard today to speak before a joint meeting of the Mount Kisco Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and Lions Club inside the Holiday Inn.

She was greeted outside the Holiday Inn by about 30 demonstrators (not all are visible in the photo) from the Working Families Party; Take 19, a group of activists based in the 19th Congressional District; and Billionaires for Nan, a tongue-in-cheek protest group that highlights its opposition to Hayworth’s politics with mostly sarcasm satire.

The demonstrators were positioned on the road in front of the hotel, a good distance from the building’s entrance. So it’s unknown if the first-term congresswoman heard any of their chants, which included things like, “What do we want? Jobs! When do we want them? Now!”

Hayworth spent part of this week touring storm damage throughout the district. She was also scheduled to tour a new cancer care center at Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt earlier today.

UPDATE — At the hospital, Hayworth was briefed by officials on the progress of the $25-million cancer care facility and toured the recently expanded emergency room, among other stops in the building.

After the tour, Hayworth, who is a doctor, said she was impressed with the expansion and the fact that Hudson Valley Hospital Center would now offer cancer services, according to the hospital.
“I was particularly fascinated by the “No-Wait” Emergency Department and the changes that have gone on there,’’ she said in a statement. “The hospital has really grown and has so much to offer the community.’’

  1. Mike –

    The word you were looking for is “satire” not “sarcasm”. Look it up. And it is “all” not “mostly”. Thanks for the coverage. Billionaires need all the love they can get.

  2. Ronald Roentgen on

    The radiation sign is lit and all but one wear a hardhat presumably so that the rays will bounce off their heads. All, that is, except the woman on the far left who seems well- protected by the thick red mop.

  3. I guess all these people have “Jobs” and are taking the day off or are they unemployed and collecting benefits ?

    If they are collecting benefits how are they going to report today as looking for “Work” ?

    These protesters are a “Joke” PERIOD.

    The Democ”RATS” lead by “Big Brother” Obama have failed plain and simple and it 2012 they will join those protesters looking for “WORK”
