Grand Marshal

I am honored to have been chosen as the Grand Marshal for the 2024 Eastchester Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. I will be joined by the 2024 honorees, Billy and Patty George, and accompanied on the parade route by my aides Kevin McGahren-Clemens and Judy Fix.

The parade is on March 10 2024, and the celebration gala is on March 2 2024 at Lake Isle Country Club. As part of the celebration we will be brewing two special beers in collaboration with Broken Bow Brewery in Tuckahoe. Stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, I am sharing two sponsorship forms for the gala and parade. There are great opportunities for businesses to get their name out in front of parade marchers and attendees as well as to be featured at the gala. For individuals, it’s an opportunity to support the parade committee and the event.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Stick A Fork In Cancer

Dine out around Eastchester and Tuckahoe during March and support the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life during our annual Stick A Fork In Cancer event. Participating restaurants will donate 10% of the night’s proceeds to Relay For Life. Dine in or take out, either way your purchase will support cancer research.

Election Day

Friends & Family in BET (Bronxville, Eastchester, Tuckahoe):  Election Day is Tuesday, Nov 8 and early voting started today.  Alternatively, you can vote by mail.  We certainly have lots of options on how to vote.

My favorite resource for voting is Vote411. It’s a user-friendly interactive website that efficiently shows you who and what is on the ballot. The service is sponsored by the League of Women Voters, a reliable and trustworthy source for election information since 1920.

Of course, both our County and State level governments are important resources as well:

It’s always our civic duty to vote; however, these are especially challenging times.

An important vote for our Town is the NYS Assembly position representing the 88th Assembly District which includes Eastchester, Bronxville, & Tuckahoe.  I heartily endorse Amy Paulin as our NYS representative. I’ve known Amy for more than two decades, and I can tell you that Amy is a hard-working and dedicated public servant.  What’s inspiring to me about Amy is that she is a warm and authentic person, yet is so incredibly intelligent and productive in her role. 

Amy has an incredible track record representing our Town and surrounding regions. This is proven by the fact that, in the Assembly, Amy Paulin has passed over 300 laws — lowering taxes, protecting reproductive rights, suspending the gas tax, and getting illegal guns off our streets.  Click here for Amy’s long list of bills and how she’s advocated for us:

Amy is very successful at reaching across the aisle and working well with all different types of people.  She has made a special effort to get to know me, personally, and many of my family and friends.

Independent of a political party, don’t you want someone representing us who has a proven track record?  Local elections can be decided by a few votes, so it’s extremely important we all vote for candidates who can get the job done.  And that’s why I am voting for Amy Paulin for Assembly.

Let me know if you’re interested in helping to get the word out for Amy Paulin.

Please do share this newsletter with others in our Town. And stay in touch!
