GREENBURGH ELECTED OFFICIALS TO BE SWORN INTO OFFICE AT NY SCHOOL FOR DEAF ON TUESDAY...WEDNESDAY CONCORD ROAD SCHOOL...THURSDAY GREENVILLE SCHOOL..
28 years ago (when I was first elected to the Westchester County Board of Legislators) I started a tradition. Every time I was elected/re-elected I held my swearing in ceremony at the NY School for the Deaf. It's inspiring to interact with the students at the NY School for the Deaf and to discuss local government with children who are overcoming physical challenges. I begin a new term of office as Town Supervisor in 2012 and the tradition continues!
Greenburgh has a new Councilman (Ken Jones), two new Judges (Delores Brathwaite and Walter Rivera) and a new Receiver of Taxes (Anne Povella). Town Clerk Judith Beville was re-elected to her job. Kevin Morgan was re-elected to the Town Council. Arlene Gordon-Oliver was re-elected as Town Judge.
We're holding a few swearing in ceremonies at area schools --beginning with the NY School for the Deaf on Tuesday. On Wednesday there will be a swearing in ceremony at the Concord Road School in Ardsley and on Thursday we will hold our ceremony at the Greenville School in Edgemont. Our elected officials have been invited to participate in these ceremonies.
Among the goals: to provide students with an opportunity to observe government in action and to learn about their town government. This years ceremony at the NY School for the Deaf is even more special --last year the school (which does so much for the deaf population) was in danger of closing -- due to NYS budget problems. An effective lobbying effort persuaded the state to save the school.
12:30 PM NEW YORK SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF (auditorium)-----this is a very moving ceremony before deaf students. I have been holding the ceremony here for over 24 years!
