State Senator George Latimer’s campaign for Westchester County Executive continues to pick up steam…
“I’m pleased to have at least one major endorsement in 13 of Westchester’s 25 towns/cities so far,” State Senator George Latimer. “That speaks to the breadth of the support we are generating. We can’t win countywide if we don’t show strength in every corner of the county.”
His campaign raised $50k in the last week, and 5 local Democratic Committees have backed his effort, Rye Town, North Castle, Mamaroneck Town, Rye City and Harrison. Thursday, he announced elected officials/party leaders from a host of communities. “We are happy to have support of:”
Manny Quezada, Ossining Village Trustee
Blanca Lopez, Former Port Chester School Board President
Kathie Talbot, City Councilwoman, Peekskill
Drew Claxton, City Councilwoman, Peekskill
Dr. Chris DiGiorgio, Chair, Tuckahoe Village Democrats
Catherine Parker, County Legislator 7th CLD
Tom Nardi, Town Councilman, Rye Town
Barry Reiter, Town Councilman, North Castle
Jaine Elkind Eney, Town Councilwoman, Mamaroneck
Abby Katz, Town Councilwoman, Mamaroneck
The weekend has brought more endorsements for County Executive:
Dr. Peter Hoffmann, Chair, Pelham Manor Village Dems
Nancy Seligson, Supervisor, Mamaroneck Town
Keith Waitt & Victor Tafur, Mamaroneck Village Trustees
“… and previously, we’ve had individual endorsements from electeds in Bedford, Mt Kisco, New Rochelle and White Plains among others.
I met with a group, from We Persist, in Rye Brook, and whether it is grassroots Democratic volunteers or citizen activists recent to County advocacy, there is a deep hunger for change. Smart, tough, principled change.
The Sleeping Giant of Westchester has awakened.
State Sen. Latimer is up against County Legislator Ken Jenkins and David Spano, son of former County Executive Andrew Spano for the Democratic Nomination to challenge Republican Robert Astorino in his bid for a third term.
State Assemblyman Tom Abinanti, a Democrat who represents Mount Pleasant and Greenburgh is said to be still considering a run in this November’s election as well.
