YONKERS, NY — February 6, 2019 — I’d like to begin by thanking Yonkers City Council Majority Leader Michael Sabatino for all the efforts he has put forth over the past 7 years in office.
He has been a good partner to me as a resident, community leader, business owner and volunteer in police service.
We have been able to get a lot done for the area where I live; north west Yonkers, much more needs to be done, as more challenges are recognized on the horizon.
Following Majority Leader Michael Sabatino’s announcement last week that he would not seek another term, I was prompted to take a more serious look at a possible run for office.
I am confident that I would be a strong candidate and know that I would work hard for the best interests of the residents of the 3rd District.
There are many issues at hand and I feel that a fresh perspective from a non-career politician would be valuable.
Someone who embodies community and public service and is willing to take a stand for our neighbors defines my past and informs by intended service to the 3rd District.
We need a motivated solutionist who is out there in the community, ready to take on the challenges and willing to put in the required effort to do just that.
Mr. Simpson advised, “I’ve launched an exploratory committee to report back to me on the feasibility of my run for office and the prospect of earning enough support to win the trust and vote for City Councilman to Yonkers City Council District 3”.
