Legislator Tubiolo Supports Veterans

(L-R): Westchester County Board Legislator David J. Tubiolo – R – District 14 (Yonkers and Mount Vernon, NY), and Westchester County Executive Director of Veterans Affairs Hon. Ron Tocci.

WHITE PLAINS, NY — November 20, 2017 — In a unanimous vote last Monday night, November 13th, Westchester County Legislator David Tubiolo (R-District 14-Yonkers & Mount Vernon), Chair of the Westchester County Board of Legislators’ Committee on Seniors & Constituencies, joined with his colleagues in passing a Local Law that will extend the County’s property tax exemption for Cold War Veterans.

“Our brave men and women served us proudly, the very least we can do is help provide some financial relief,” said Tubiolo. “This law provides some tax relief as well as the acknowledgement and recognition our veterans deserve.”

According to Tubiolo, the property tax exemption will continue to apply to Cold War Veterans as long as they remain qualifying owners. “I am grateful to all the Legislators for supporting our County’s Veterans and passing this important measure,” said Hon. Ron Tocci, the County Executive Director of Veteran Affairs. “I encourage everyone to do something to help our veterans, so I am happy to see our County’s legislators lead by example.” Mr. Tocci is a veteran and former New York State Assemblymember. Veterans Day is an official U.S. public holiday, observed annually on November 11, which honors military veterans. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I, with major hostilities formally ending at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

This Local Law takes effect immediately and applies to assessment rolls based on taxable status dates occurring on or after January 1, 2018.

    1. Shame on you. Mr. Tocci has devoted his entire for public good; after fighting to defend the very freedoms offered in America on the battlefields alongside his fellow Veterans, he now seeks to ensure our heroes receive proper care and support sometimes and too often required upon their return to civilian life. He is a gentleman, a family man, a public servant and hero. I can only hope my sons grow up and learn integrity, honor, loyalty and respect; the tenets of what comprise the man, Ronald Tocci.
