Team Assembled to Win in November
YONKERS, NY — March 2, 2017 — The Jenkins campaign today announced two significant additions to his team for election as the next Westchester County Executive. The campaign has hit its stride, making pivotal new hires with the election still eight months away.
Joe Montalto has joined the team as Campaign Manager. For more than thirty years, Joe has served New York City, New York State and Westchester County governments. Before he spent time as a New York State Senator representing Brooklyn, Joe began his career serving the Koch Administration in New York City. He then made a move to the New York State Housing Department. Joe left the Housing Department to become a Senior Advisor to two state senate minority leaders and director of the New York State Senate Campaign Committee.
Montalto made the move to Westchester to serve as the deputy commissioner of the Westchester County Parks Department, and worked as the director of Rye Playland. Joe also brings to the table his vast experience in political campaigns at all levels throughout the state.
“Joe’s expertise is unparalleled,” said Jenkins. “He’ll come in and take the campaign to the next level. His political and governmental experience in Westchester helps us in all areas – strategic, tactical, and operational. He’s the right guy for the job.”
The campaign also announced the hiring of Peter Brown, a partner at BrownMillerGroup, to handle the campaign’s press operation. Peter, a national-level political operative, brings to the campaign laser-like focus on direct voter contact and targeted communications.
“Peter has won huge races. He has the breadth of experience we need to get the message out,” Jenkins said. “My campaign will be the most sophisticated grassroots campaign Westchester County has seen,” he added. “With the leadership in place, we are ready to go.
