Yonkers Insider Editorial.

Michael Khader aids and contributes money to the campaign of Westchester County Legislator Virginia Perez, Now The Yonkers Insider Newspaper rescinds our endorsement of Michael Khader for Yonkers City Council President.

We write this editorial to inform the public that Democrat running for Yonkers City Council President Michael Khader has given a campaign donation to the campaign of Westchester County Legislator Virginia Perez of $100.00.

We feel it is showing Khader that stands with County Legislator Perez 1000 percent and supports her agenda of a being a Democrat in name only and also of Legislator Perez being supportive of her agenda along with her partnership with County Executive Rob Astorino, also Khader's sister Lauren gave a donation of $125.00 to County Legislator Perez as well.

London Reyes, Democrat running for Westchester County Board of Legislators - 17th District.
London Reyes is the voice needed on the Westchester County Board of Legislators - 17th District.






I write this letter to express my strong and unwavering support for a candidate running for Westchester County Legislator in the 17th Legislative District. His name is community activist, London Reyes and I strongly support his candidacy for the county board of legislators.




I feel he would be a voice for the people on the county board of legislators, which I feel is sorely needed in these times. London will be a breathe of fresh air if he is elected to the county board. His movement is a call to arms for a political revolution, I feel he is the right person needed in these times.




We need a champion for south Yonkers and for our city of Yonkers on the county board of legislators. In terms of London's community activism he has done much in the last fifteen years to energize and galvani…

The question arises as Deputy County Attorney for the County of Westchester,  James Castro Blanco's involvement in the political activity of County Legislator, can Castro Blanco do political activity as a Deputy County Attorney?
