YONKERS, NY – September 6, 2019 – Yesterday Councilman John Rubbo announced his intentions to change party affiliations and join the Democratic Caucus.
Minority Leader Mike Breen stated, “while I am disappointed that Councilman Rubbo has decided to leave our caucus I am certain he will continue to act in the best interest of his constituency. In his time serving, I have seen John act as a tireless advocate for the 4th District and fully expect that will continue. I look forward to continuing to work with the entire Council and Administration in a bi-partisan way as I have since I took office.”
Councilman Anthony Merante said, “as frustrated as I am that Councilman Rubbo has left the Republican caucus I will remain grateful for our time together and continue to wish him well. I am confident that we will work as well together on opposite sides of the political aisle as we did when we caucused together.”
