RYE, NY — April 11, 2017 — Five local Democratic committees have thrown their support to the election of State Senator George Latimer (D – Westchester) in his bid to become the Westchester County Executive. The committees are Rye City, Rye Town, Harrison, Mamaroneck, and North Castle. The committees cited Senator Latimer’s ability to win tough races, knowledge of the issues affecting Westchester, and his outstanding representation of his constituents.
“George has had some of the most challenging and expensive races in Westchester County history. His ability to overcome being outspent drastically, and the false negative attacks that his opponents have thrown at him show that he is the only candidate who can beat Rob Astorino,” said Harrison Democratic Committee Chair Frank Corvino.
“George has been and continues to be an outstanding representative for his constituents. He makes himself available to each and every one of them like no other politician I’ve ever seen, and his grasp of their needs – that is, our needs – is unrivaled,” Rye City Chair Meg Cameron said. “We are supporting George to ensure that all of Westchester gets the treatment it deserves from its County Executive when he defeats Rob Astorino in November.”
“We need a champion for the people in White Plains, and not someone who has consistently played politics with the county budget in an attempt to run for higher office. Without a doubt a race to unseat the current County Executive will be a difficult race and we believe that only George Latimer a champion of the people can beat Rob Astorino in November. That is why we wholeheartedly support George Latimer,” said Barry Malvin, Chair of the Town of North Castle Democratic Committee.
