WHITE PLAINS, NY — August 13, 2017 — “I want to thank Ken Jenkins for a hard-fought and principled campaign, and I want to thank all the people who voted today, upholding the best traditions of our democracy. The people of Westchester have spoken and I am humbled to now be the Democratic, Working Families, Women’s Equality, and Independence Party candidate for County Executive in the November 7th general election.
“We have a tough race ahead of us, but an important race. Westchester needs change, and our taxpayers deserve a government that tells the truth, cuts patronage and waste, and puts people over political ideology. For eight long years, Rob Astorino has worried more about his future political career, his allies and his campaign contributors while taxpayers get left holding the bill.
“Today, we start the campaign to take our County back from a politician who stands with Donald Trump and who is willing to risk our future and our children’s future for his own short-term political gain. We will offer an honest vision for our future; where we respect the rights of all Westchester residents, defend our values of inclusion and fairness, protect our environment, and root out waste and corruption.”
