Tonight I attended a Democratic Delegate's meeting. We were fortunate to hear from one of our potential Democratic candidates running for County Executive of Westchester. Mayor of New Rochelle Noam Bramson put his bid in to be the party's possible candidate. He would be running against the incumbent Republican, Rob Astorino, if he gets his party's nod.
The office of Westchester County Executive was created in 1937 when voters approved a new county charter giving the county an executive branch to complement the County Board of Legislators.
Yes, I wiki-ed that! I did it for all of us. When I look at that definition it brings home, all the more, why I support my New Rochelle leader and neighbor, Noam Bramson. His vision, as he stated, is to help all residence of Westchester bring out the best of all of us toward achieving our best. As a leader in New Rochelle, he has shown tremendous leadership through compassion and action. He wants to bring that energy to the County level. I believe he can do it. Here are some quotes from tonight's remarks...."All of us are better off when our community is healthy.....What matters here, Matters everywhere...We need to budget reform...we need to plan for the future..Too easy to forget the future and the big picture...Sustainability and the Quality of our plan is essential for our future
...a Vital economy is needed to move forward"
For me these are all inspiring thoughts. We nee to re-invigorate our government, especially at the regional level. As, was note, "regional government matters."
I believe public service is a noble cause and occupation. Bramson is proof if that.
He knows what it means to govern a diverse economic and culturally
Smart people listen and that's what he does.
He was brought up in a true American household. His parents were immigrants who had to flee for their lives from their European birthplace. He knows his and his brothers lives were easier because of their strife.
He was taught to understand the world is a big place and he in his path through life can make the world a better place. He is a leader who inspires others to do the same. Noam Bramson is honorable and sincere in his pursuit of being the county exec. And although will miss him as our immediate leader here in New Rochelle, if he should win it all, we can feel reassured we will always have him to rely on as an executive leader.
