At a press conference today in Yonkers, New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson was endorsed by fellow Mayors Mike Spamo, Tom Roach, Mary Foster, and Ernie Davis. With the endorsements, Mayor Bramson has now been endorsed by the mayors of every urban center in Westchester County, collectively representing nearly half of Westchester’s population.
“I’m proud to endorse Noam Bramson as Westchester’s next County Executive,” said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. “Noam understands the issues we face here in Yonkers and across the county, and he knows that creating jobs is our number one priority.”
“Noam Bramson understands the needs of Westchester’s urban centers and the challenges of governing a city,” said White Plains Mayor Tom Roach. “As a Mayor himself, Noam knows firsthand how important smart growth, public safety and parks are to our communities. He has governed successfully through challenging times. As County Executive, Noam will bring this front line experience to the county level.”
“As a fellow Mayor of one of Westchester’s cities, Noam understands the challenges I and other Mayor’s across the County are facing,” said Peekskill Mayor Mary Foster. “One of my top priorities as Mayor has been to work to revitalize our downtown and create jobs. I know Noam has faced similar challenges in New Rochelle. That gives him an important understanding of the constructive role that the County can play in improving our economy. I look forward to working with Noam to continue attracting businesses and jobs to our main streets and downtowns.”
“It’s vital that we attract jobs to Mount Vernon and other cities where they are desperately needed,” said Mount Vernon Mayor Ernie Davis. “Westchester County can play a vital role in attracting new businesses to downtowns like Mount Vernon. Our citizens need active help from the County to let them hold onto those jobs once they get them. So let me be clear that although as Mayor of The City of Mount Vernon I take pictures with many people, I endorse and wholeheartedly support the candidacy of Noam Bramson.”

“Together, we understand through direct experience what it takes to attract private investment, create jobs, and grow a local economy, so that businesses and residents can succeed,” said Mayor Bramson. “It takes good planning and active leadership, and it’s not getting done by this County administration today.”
