Westchester exec brings town hall to Yonkers


Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino will bring his ‘Ask Astorino’ town hall forum to Yonkers on April 2 at 7 p.m. at Yonkers Middle/High School Arena, 150 Rockland Ave.

“The county executive will provide an overview of the 2013 budget, which was approved by a bipartisan coalition of the Board of Legislators,” the county statement announcing the event says. “He will also give an update on the progress his administration is making in delivering on his three major goals: providing tax relief, preserving essential services and promoting economic development.”

Residents can ask questions there or submit questions in advance at askastorino@westchestergov.com.

    Residents should ask for a list of the current political patronage hirings now on the Westchester County payroll
    and about
    65 others

  2. fool me twice on

    Residents who remember the fallout with the Yonkers affordable housing disaster should ask Astorino why he is making the same mistakes. Why is defying a court order such a good idea? How is the prospect of losing federal funding, and possibly incurring fines good for economic development????

    Fool me, 2 wrongs don’t make it right and I’m thankful Astorino’s drawn a line in the sand on this BS.

    What a joke! “providing tax relief” – the Board of Legislators provided tax relief, not him. “preserving essential services” – that’s why the working poor have to quit their jobs and go on public assistance because they can no longer afford quality childcare. And “promoting economic development” – sure, holding up every capital project and putting the county in jeopardy by flouting federal law, that’s really promoting economic development in Westchester. This guy is a fraud, and those that buy his line of BS deserve another 4 years so he can REALLY destroy this county.

  5. Amanda your way off base. If Andy Spano were still CE, the budget would be well over $2 billion instead of the $1.7 billion we have today and the BoL has been a hindrence to the process. Time to face facts, Astorino’s done a good (if not great) job running the county. You sound like 1 of those people who believe bigger government is the answer to all of our problems when that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

    The bottom line is that Mr. Astorino is not getting this done, not even close. Perhaps he should spend more time on this issue, instead of focusing on his re-election campaign. Regardless of where we live, and who we are – This needs to get done.
