WESTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Over the past year Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has visited 22 municipalities across the country for "Ask Astorino" town hall meetings. This week he released a new video highlighting some of the most frequently asked questions of the meetings.
"It's not always easy to find the time to attend a town hall meeting," said Astorino. "This video is an alternate way to find out how county government is working for you. I welcome your feedback."
Hundreds of Westchester County residents have attended the town hall meetings, where Astorino has addressed topics such as taxes, housing, Playland and crime. In the new video, Astorino addresses topics such as the role of the county government, his efforts to reduce taxes and promote business, and his motivations for running for county executive. He highlights accomplishments such as reducing the budget from $1.8 billion to $1.7 billion, and how the county dealt with Hurricane Sandy. It also includes scenes of his home life as he takes viewers through a typical day in his life.
"I'm still in awe of what this job is and what it means," Astorino, who is running for re-election in November, says in the video.
