Letter: Verni an escape from partisan politics

To the Editor,
I am writing to endorse John Verni for county legislator for District Seven, which encompasses Mamaroneck, Larchmont, Rye and parts of New Rochelle and Harrison. Given the times we live in, when both political parties are constantly at odds, we need non-partisan leaders like John Verni to step up and help bring the community back together.

I have known John for many years and he is exactly the type of person that we should elect to the county board. John is well qualified. He graduated from Georgetown University and Fordham Law School. He has served the Sound Shore community as a Westchester County assistant district attorney. He is a natural leader and has a strong social conscience. John served with distinction as president of Habitat For Humanity of Westchester and has been a leader on many local non-profit efforts. He has given selflessly to our local community.

John Verni will be an excellent member of the county board. He will bring a non-ideological, results-oriented approach to government. I have seen John work with people from all walks of life bringing people together for the common good. Whether it is building houses for Habitat for Humanity, working with juveniles in the New Rochelle Youth Court, or restoring historically important buildings into community assets, John is smart, industrious and practical.

I am confident that John will bring this same can-do attitude to the county board. When elected, I know that John will put petty politics aside and reach across the aisle to make decisions that are based upon the best intereVerni an escape from partisan politics

In all my years of public service, I have witnessed the value of having individuals with John Verni’s attributes involved in the governing process. That is why I wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy for county legislator. Please join me in voting for John Verni on Election Day on Nov. 5.
