RYE BROOK, N.Y. - The following letter was sent to Harrison reporter Phil Corso detailing why Republican and Conservative candidate David Gelfarb would be a suitable county legislator for District 6. Gelfarb will run for the position in November's general election against Dan Brakewood (D).
District 6 represents Harrison, Rye Brook and Port Chester on the county Board of Legislators.
If you are tired of having the highest property taxes in the country, your only choice in the upcoming County Legislator race is to vote for David Gelfarb on Nov. 8. I have gotten to know David Gelfarb over the years as he led our Bellefair Homeowners Association. I continue to admire his accomplishments as a Rye Town Councilman.
Gelfarb is the consummate professional who has been attentive to the needs of his constituents and has had a laser focus on getting results.
As many of us in Port Chester, Harrison and Rye Brook are scratching our heads as to why our property taxes are so high, successful leaders with a record of cutting taxes, like David Gelfarb, are fighting the good and right fight to lower taxes and spending.
Gelfarb's results at the town level clearly demonstrate that what he did for Rye Town, he would do for Westchester County. As a Rye Town Councilman, Gelfarb voted to cut the tax levy by 50 percent. He increased the Town fund balance by 22 percent, and, he successfully fought to recover $1 million in unpaid real estate taxes.
Results like these combined with a good tax cutting record are what we tax payers need right now. David Gelfarb is the only candidate in this race who can claim that description. I urge you to endorse David for Westchester County Legislator, and to vote Gelfarb on Nov. 8.
