Take a quick look at the range of endorsements for Yadira Ramos-Herbert. I can’t remember any prior non-incumbent receiving such widespread — really just about universal — support in a primary election. These leaders and public interest groups, from the moderate center to the progressive left, know both candidates personally and have observed their skills and temperament up close. When people in the best position to make an informed judgment send such a clear message, it is worth listening. Yadira will be a dynamic, effective, and inspiring mayor, who brings people together and moves all of New Rochelle forward.
UPDATE: Add County Executive George Latimer to the list of supporters, with a powerful endorsement issued today.
