White Plains, NY — Registered Conservative District Leader Harry Spreckman, husband to Westchester County Board Legislator Bernice Spreckman (R), is being pressured to vote the 13 1/2 weighted votes he controls during the reorganization meeting of the Westchester County Conservative Committee by the good offices of Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino’s Chief of Staff George Oros, from his past support of the Conservative Party Chairwoman Gail Burns to her opposition, led by Hugh Fox, Jr. To ease the verbal arm twisting, Mr Oros has offered Harry and Bernice’s son a higher paying position than the one he presently enjoys in the employ of Westchester County government. Proving once again that family and money matters when the agenda is nothing more than patronage.
Yonkers Tribune has gleaned that there may be an upset of present fortune at the initial ballot during Wednesday evening's proceedings. At issue now is how many arms were twisted, how many jobs offered, and how much will this cost the taxpayer?
As the demise of Gail Burns comes to be tabulated, Hugh Fox, Jr. will don Brutus' toga.
Perhaps all roads do lead to Rome.
Will Ms Burns pull a rabbit out of a hat or are congratulations heard among insiders for Mr Fox Jr.'s successful effort?
