In Term-End Report, Board Chair Ben Boykin Reflects on Four Years of Achievements
White Plains, NY -- Westchester County Board of Legislators Chair Ben Boykin (D – White Plains, Scarsdale, West Harrison) has issued his end-of-term report, looking back on the Board’s achievements over the two terms.
Boykin said, “The last four years have been historic and consequential for this Board. As Westchester County elected officials, our greatest responsibility is to work towards a County that is improved in every way from the one we inherit. When people look back on the last four years, they will see that we have done that, and more.”
“We have restored the County’s financial health; passed historic legislation to support Westchester’s working families; taken action to respond to the climate crisis; invested in our roads, bridges and infrastructure; preserved and improved our parks and historic buildings; increased affordable housing access for thousands of seniors and working people; strengthened County government ethics and transparency; supported small businesses and consumers; embraced and protected Westchester’s diversity; and confronted a once-in-a-century pandemic.”
“While I am extremely proud to have led the Board during these historic times, the Board’s achievements are not mine, they are the result of the committed, focused and collaborative work of all Legislators during these last four years, the outstanding work of the Board’s dedicated staff, and the support and leadership of our partner in County government, County Executive George Latimer and his staff.”
