Today on the first day of early voting Black Westchester is proud to announce our Endorsements. We are only endorsing two candidates in this primary Election, Tasha Young for Greenburgh Town Supervisor and Shanae Williams for Westchester County Clerk.
Tasha D. Young For Greenburgh Town Supervisor
Black Westchester proudly Endorses advocate, educator, social worker and leader, Tasha Young for Greenburgh Town Supervisor. While we have had a great relationship with Paul Feiner, we believe 30 years is a long time and feel its time for some new blood in that office. If Tasha Young wins she will make history as the first Woman and first African-American to run the Town of Greenburgh. That alone is not enough reason to vote for her though. Black Westchester feels she has the qualifications, the passion and the out of the box thinking that will greatly benefit the Town of Supervisor and help move the municipality forward. We believe Ms. Young’s experience as Chief of Staff to New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo and her style of leadership which is rooted in her calling to empower and guide her community through difficult times and uplift those around her to find their ultimate success makes her the best candidate to become the next Town Supervisor of Greenburgh. you can view our interview with Tasha Young here.

Shanae Williams For County Clerk
Shanae Williams, currently a City Council Woman in the City of Yonkers District 1 would also make history as the first African-American Woman County Clerk if elected. Again we would like to state while that is exciting that is not good enough reason to vote for a candidate in itself. But from our interviews and our coverage of her at her current role we find her to be a very capable and qualified candidate and believe she would bring much needed positive change and progressive leadership to the County Clerk office. We believe she has a good understanding of the office and will make the office more available to persons of color, which is very important to us and our readers. In her interview she educated many of our listeners to all the things the office offers that they did not know and has many idea to keep all the residents of Westchester informed and engaged. The Westchester County Clerk is the oldest elected office in Westchester County, having been established in 1683. The County Clerk’s responsibility is maintaining and preserving the official documents and records. The current Clerk has served for 15 years and the office can use. We believe Ms. Williams is the right candidate to serve as the next Westchester County Clerk. You can check out our interview with Ms. Williams here.

We proudly endorse both of the women of color and encourage our readers to consider voting for them when you cast your ballot. Early Voting started today, Saturday, June 12, click here to see all early voting locations and hours.
