Congratulations to....
Westchester County Legislator Alfreda Williams, former Greenburgh Town Clerk, on assuming her new post as Legislator representing the town of Greenburgh--effective January 1, 2010.

County Legislator Tom Abinanti who was elected Majority Leader of the Westchester County Board of Legislators.

Kevin Plunkett, a Greenburgh resident (he resides in one of our villages) on being appointed Deputy County Executive. Kevin is an attorney who represented the town of Greenburgh in a land use case in federal court.

George Longworth, former Dobbs Ferry Police Chief, on being named the head of the Westchester County department of Public Safety. George Longworth, a former Greenburgh resident, played an instrumental role in the creation of joint initiatives between Greenburgh and village police departments including the drug task force. He also suggested that the Greenburgh police dept and village police dept share dispatchers during the midnight shift, when there are few calls. This initiative, if implemented, could save taxpayers money and move a police officer from a desk job to patrol responsibilities.

Ned McCormack, new communications director for the County Executive. Ned is a former President of the Mayfair-Knollwood Civic Association.

Francis Sheehan & Diana Juettner --on beginning their new terms as Greenburgh Town Councilmembers. David Dwinell on his re-election as Receiver of Taxes. Town Clerk Judith Beville on her new term as Town Clerk.

Francis, Diana, David, Judith & I will be sworn into office on Wednesday at 9 AM at the NY School for the Deaf. We will also hold a swearing in ceremony at the Bailey School on Thursday at 9 AM. It's been our practice to hold swearing in ceremonies at local schools--providing students with the opportunity to witness & participate in an important government ceremony first hand. At the swearing in ceremonies we discuss our responsibilities and answer questions from the students.

Have a happy and healthy new year!


Fed Up With Feiner said...

Do you tell these young impressionable minds how you have no respect for the law and that your oath of office has no significance? Maybe you should consider not tainting these young minds!

Dear Fed Up:
He's gotten away with it for over a quarter of a century, so why should he change now?

The only way to change IT, is at the ballot box. But, alas the "young minds" pulling the levers have been conned well.

Can you imagine five less qualified people in charge of spending more than $75 million and being rewarded by being given the oportunity to do so again and again and again.

Now they- lead by Feiner- are going to waste more of our money suing the Hartsdale Parking Authority because the Authority is abiding by the law and not accepting a Board (Feiner) appointee who doesn't meet the legal standards.

They can't win for winning...even after they win in court, the PA will be out legal fees. If they collect their legal fees because of the frivolous nature of the suit, the taxpayers of Greenburgh will have to foot the bill.

What a great Town we live in,#80. I wonder how BAD #81-100 are.
