At the December monthly meeting of the John D. Calandra Lodge #2600 of the Order of Sons of Italy in America (OSIA), at The Olde Stone Mill in the neighborhood of Crestwood, Yonkers, NY, actor Anthony J. Ribustello was invited by Legislator Tubiolo and spoke as the Lodge's Guest Speaker.

(WHITE PLAINS, NY) Westchester County Board of Legislators Majority Leader Catherine Borgia released the following statement on the County Executive’s announcement on the Federal Housing Settlement:

The seven Republican County Legislators and one Conservative member of the Westchester County Board of Legislators are proposing that a law be passed as quickly as possible that requires that any gun shows to be held at the Westchester County Center be mandated to follow the recommendations of the NY State Attorney General's office from its "Model New York Gun Show Procedures".

(WHITE PLAINS, NY) Upon learning of the proposed gun and knife show slated to take place at the Westchester County Center in January, members of the Democratic Caucus are outraged and committed to take action.

(WHITE PLAINS, NY) The Westchester County Board of Legislators adopted a budget today for the 2017 year that stretches Westchester County’s operations to the thinnest of all time and remains structurally imbalanced according to numerous independent opinions, including the League of Women Voters and the Citizen Budget Advisory Committee. Once again the County Executive has relied on accounting gimmicks, one-shot revenues and suspect revenue projections, including income from a proposed public-private partnership at the Westchester Airport. At a meeting earlier today, the BOL unanimously passed a resolution asserting a legislative leadership role in issuing an RFP to solicit other possible opportunities to increase revenue because of widespread dissatisfaction about the way the County Executive’s initial proposal was solicited and presented to the board. Democratic Caucus members of the Board of Legislators voted against the budget because of the continuing long-standing structural imbalance and fiscal irresponsibility.
