The Census is coming! Come March 12th, start looking for a postcard in the mail urging you to participate in the Census.

Coronavirus hit Westchester last week and the number of cases throughout the county is growing. The New York State Department of Health has set up a hotline at (888) 364-3065 where Department of Health experts will be available to answer questions regarding COVID-19.

Ban Hybrid Voting Machines!
Experts agree these voting machines present serious security flaws – yet they are still an option in New York! Call your NYS legislators to co-sponsor S6733/A8597 to ban these flawed machines. Thank you to local Senators Shelley Mayer, Alessandra Biaggi and James Skoufis, and local Assembly Members Paulin, Buchwald, Abinanti, and Sayegh for signing on.
If your elected isn’t on the bill yet- ask them why not!
