Colin will ensure that they have support they need to come back stronger than ever and that they are able to take full advantage of all available aid. He'll also continue to work to ensure that we keep our seniors safe, safely reopen schools, and put people back to work.
Climate & Sustainability
Work on climate resiliency and sustainability. Climate change is one of the key defining challenges of our time, and it hasn't gone away while we've focused on other pressing problems for the past year.

Colin has passed fiscally responsible budgets that reduced taxes while ensuring that we were investing in essential services that maintain our high quality of life. He knows how to strike the balance we need to deliver for Westchester.
