New Rochelle the Chamber of Commerce of New Rochelle and the Rotary Club of New Rochelle will be honored to have Mr. Robert P. Astorino the County Executive of Westchester as our keynote speaker.
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino is part of a new generation of American leaders who believe in facing our nation’s challenges head-on. Unsustainable spending, punishing taxes, and dangerously high debt levels threaten the economic foundation of this country and they must be dealt with before they grow worse.

Astorino was first elected to public office at age 21, serving as a member of the Mount Pleasant Board of Education. During his tenure, he also served as the board’s vice president. He went on to serve for 12 years as a councilman on the Mount Pleasant Town Board, including six years as deputy supervisor. In 2003, he was elected to the Westchester County Board of Legislators.
As in the past Rob will discuss the state of the county, open the floor to questions and will also discuss the newly approved coalition budget.
