White Plains, NY -- The political climate in America has reached a fever pitch in the latest assault on women’s reproductive rights. To have a federal abortion ban introduced by Senator Lindsey Graham, a person who will never have to personally choose whether or not to terminate a pregnancy, is evidence that conservative politicians will stop at nothing to regulate women and their choices. The decision to carry a baby to term or not should be a personal, private matter and not dictated by the government.

White Plains, NY — In response to the economic constraints of seniors living in Westchester County, Legislator Vedat Gashi (D – New Castle, Somers, Yorktown) and Legislator David Tubiolo (D – Yonkers, Mt. Vernon) have sponsored an amendment to our current local law which will expand the eligibility for property tax exemptions for seniors. Residents 65 years of age or older whose combined annual household income is $29,000 or less now qualify for a property tax exemption. Under the proposed amendment, the combined annual household income would increase to $50,000, benefitting more seniors across Westchester.
