YONKERS, NY — Yonkers Tribune’s cadre of acid-tongued bloggers have learned Bernice Spreckman, Westchester County Board Legislator representing the 14th District will step down after completing this her final term in office since 1995. She is expected to make her intentions known within days. Her prowess as an advocate are well respected throughout Westchester.
Ms Sprechman was inducted into the Westchester County Senior Citizens Hall of Fame in 2002 and designated “Woman of the Year” by the Westchester County Federation of Women’s Clubs in 2003. She was selected as the 2004 recipient of the Rose Kryzak Advocacy Award by the NYS Senior Action Council.
In the wings are former Yonkers City Council Minority Leader Liam McLaughlin, justin Tubiolo, prominent member of the Hyatt Neighborhood Association, and 5th City Council District candidate Joe Crotty.
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has impressed Ms. Spreckman to retire but has now demanded Ms Spreckman renew her efforts for re-election because Mr Astorino is displeased byu the potential candidates being proposed. Most interesting. The ever reluctant Ms Spreckman is playing the game by switching positions. One day its yes, next it's no. She has survived on maybe. Yonkers might as well give her more time to survive the telling of her conduct herein. We will eventually learn what her payoff will be to stay or depart. Its all about Bernice and Harry and her family. ANother "nice" person in politics who cannot tell when it is propitious to depart the scene. Beides, what has she delivered in the almost decade and a half in office. Does anyone know?
