BW 2023 Pre-Primary Issue


Welcome to our special Pre-Primary Edition We will be giving you one last look at every race in the June 27, 2023, Westchester County Democratic Primary. I know I said we would not be endorsing any candidates in the election, but as I was finishing up the issue, I made an editorial decision to make one exception. Black Westchester proudly announces Shanae Williams for County Legislator – District 16 as our SOLE endorsement. I agree 100% with Thomas Meier, Chairman of the Yonkers Democratic City Committee, when he said, “Shanae has been a fighter for her community as a councilwoman and will fight for Yonkers as a County Legislator.” We have endorsed her for council in 2019, for clerk in 2021, and we proudly endorse her for County Legislator in 2023.

We will release our regular June issue in a week or so but we wanted to put out this Special Pre Primary issue and give information on all the candidates. As well as all the information on election day, early voting dates, times, locations, and more.

As always, we would like to take this time to thank all the readers, listeners, supporters, sponsors, contributors, and advertisers for their support in our effort to deliver the “News With The Black Point Of View,” since 2014. We are always looking for writers, photographers, and interns, email to inquire.

Please send us your feedback and let us know what you think of this issue. Let us know subjects or topics you would like to see us cover in the future and send your letters to the editor to

Peace and Blessings
