HARRISON, N.Y. Harrison Mayor/Supervisor Ron Belmont was only one of the various local and county politicians who passed through the local library Sunday, creating a hub of discussion.
"This is a lovely event," Belmont said. "We should do something like this every year."
The League of Women Voters of Harrison hosted the political meet and greet Sunday afternoon, hosting members of the Harrison Town Board, including Belmont, Council members Marlane Amelio, Steve Malfitano, Joe Cannella, Town Clerk Jackie Greer and Town Justices Marc Lust and Nelson Canter.
County politicians at the event also included Assembly member Robert Castelli (R District 89), Rep. Nita Lowey (D District 18), and retirees Sen. Suzi Oppenheimer (D District 37) and Legislator Martin Rogowsky (D District 6).
The League of Women Voters of Harrison hosts the political meet and greet every election year. President of the group, Lola Geiger said she was glad to see so many political figures in the same place.
"This is an event we hold every couple of years and it's always pleasant," Geiger said.
Rogowsky was honored at the event and received a citation from Belmont in recognition of his 13 years of service in the county government.
Others in attendance also included retiring Harrison Chamber of Commerce President Ada Angarano and members of the Friends of the Harrison Public Library. Angarano announced last week that she will step down from her position in anticipation of a new grandchild.
