“I enthusiastically endorse Noam Bramson for County Executive.
“Having run for and served as a town councilman, county legislator, and assemblyman, I‘ve come to understand what our diverse county demands from candidates and public officials. I know all three Democratic candidates for the job very well. Noam Bramson has the talent and the experience to win in November, and the vision to lead our county.
“As Mayor of New Rochelle, Noam has guided a large and diverse community through tough economic times, forging partnerships that link community to community and neighbor to neighbor. Governing Westchester effectively will require the same spirit of coalition. I’m confident in Noam’s ability to meet our regional challenges with focus and determination.
“Winning against a well-funded, well-spoken incumbent will require a skilled candidate and a professional campaign. Noam has the ability to stand up for our Democratic values in a way that appeals to a broad spectrum of people. He exudes energy, intelligence, and integrity. He is approachable, likeable, and reasonable. His strong organization is already firing on all cylinders.
“I’m honored to add my name to Noam’s growing list of supporters, including Congresswoman Nita Lowey, Assemblymembers Sandy Galef and Amy Paulin, and local leaders from all over Westchester.
“I urge you to join me in supporting Noam Bramson for Westchester County Executive.”
