OSSINING, NY — AUGUST 19, 2019 —Connecting in Spanish & Future Planning: Thank you to Ossining Padres Hispanos for inviting me to participate in another Facebook Live program last week. It had been quite a while, and I enjoyed the opportunity to respond to questions about things happening in village government. As we continue to expand communication with Spanish speaking residents, forums like this are valuable opportunities for connecting. Though Spanish was my minor in college, it is speaking with residents that really helps improve my skills. Still, I was very grateful for the help with translation, and for the patience of participants.
Last week’s village board work session included a presentation from Village Manager Karen D’Attore with an overview of the priorities she has identified during her first two months in this role. Two months from now, Manager D’Attore will provide us with a status update as she presents her proposed 2020 budget.
