White Plains, NY — On Tuesday the Westchester County Board of Legislators unanimously passed a measure that will give victims of domestic violence, as well as victims of human trafficking, the ability to take “safe leave” from their jobs.  The time off will permit them to deal with issues surrounding their situations, without fear of retribution from employers.

On Wednesday, April 17th, State Senator Alessandra Biaggi and County Legislator David Tubiolo hosted a joint ‘Town Hall’ meeting at the Riverside Memorial Chapel in Fleetwood for local residents and Fleetwood Neighborhood Association (FNA) & Fleetwood Citizens Society (FCS).

The communities of Peekskill, Cortlandt and Yorktown will receive funding to help deliver important services to those communities senior residents. Legislator Testa was joined by his colleagues on the Board of Legislators in approving an inter-municipal agreement (IMA) that provides up to $30,000 per community operate communications programs meant to inform seniors about the various services that are available to them through the Westchester County Department of Seniors Programs and Services. The IMA was passed unanimously at Boards meeting on Monday, April 8th.

“We have been informed, through a letter from PBA President Mike Hagan, that at the New Rochelle School Culture and Climate Committee meeting on March 27, 2019 Legislator Damon Maher publicly attacked the integrity of Westchester County Police Sgt. Amery Bernhardt. We are shocked to learn of the anti-law enforcement sentiments expressed and the hostility directed at Sgt. Bernhardt by our fellow Legislator.
