BW EXCLUSIVE: Former Mt. Vernon Mayor Clinton Young Sets the Record Straight on Memorial Field

Former Mount Vernon Mayor Clinton Young [Black Westchester]

Former Mayor of Mount Vernon who has been quiet up to his point, when it came to speaking up on this publicly about Memorial Field, but at the end of a community forum surrounding Mt. Vernon’s steadily decaying stadium, he finally breaks his silence and sets the record straight on the original plans, the nonexistent timeline of the highly speculated, debated and anticipated renovation, the finances of the plan under his administration and more.

As has been widely reported the current Mayor, Ernest D. Davis scrapped Young’s original plan in favor of a new revised plan to include a professional tennis court (the only thing to be completed to date) and how there is an extra cost of $5 million needed to complete the project, before the county will release the balance of the funds they have slated.
