Statement: Legislative Inaction Puts Hundreds of Jobs at Risk

I am extremely disappointed by last night’s complete lack of action by the Democratic Majority members of the Rockland County Legislature. Their vote of disapproval on the financial plan we submitted now puts at risk hundreds of County employees jobs and raises the specter of a double-digit property tax increase. Passage of my plan would have likely resulted in a 2021 County Budget with no layoffs and no property tax increase, but these are the dire alternatives we now face because of their vote and lack of action.

Statement: Storm Damage

Rockland County has once again been a victim of severe weather with an unexpected turn of Tropical Storm Isaias bringing damaging wind instead of the heavy rain which was forecast. The damage done in the hours when Isaias moved through our area is devastating and is second in my mind only to what we suffered during Superstorm Sandy.
