(WHITE PLAINS, NY) Members of the Westchester County Board of Legislators Democratic Caucus attended various events throughout the County this weekend in solidarity with many of their neighbors. Hundreds of Westchester Residents came out in cold temperatures to show the peace and tolerance they believe are the true values of Westchester County.


“To see members of the community unite together was truly inspiring,” says Majority Leader Catherine Borgia (D-Ossining). No matter what divisions that some are trying to draw among us, we are one Westchester County. I was proud to join my neighbors in a bi-partisan, multi-cultural, and multi-faith showing of support for all who call our community home.”


“It was an honor to address a grassroots gathering of hundreds of my neighbors this weekend,” added Legislator MaryJane Shimsky (D-Hastings-on-Hudson). Westchester County is a tolerant yet vigilant place. We see what is happening on a national level and understand its implications for our loved ones at home. This weekend, residents banded together to say we will not accept that here and I was grateful to be standing beside them.”


“The current times call for all of us to come together and say ‘no more hate, not in our county’ loudly,” said Legislator Lyndon Williams (D-Mount Vernon). “What we did this weekend was exactly that. A feeling of pride in our County was present in everyone at these events and it is something that will not go away. We know what our values are in Westchester County and are not afraid to make them known.”
