Rockland County Legislator
I enthusiastically endorse Nita Lowey for Congress in the 17th CD. When I was appointed to the Rockland County Legislature, Congresswoman Lowey was right there to greet me and offer to work together in the fight for fiscal solvency for our great County. I am proud to call her my colleague and a friend. No one fights harder for Rockland and her constituents.
