TARRYTOWN - County Executive Rob Astorino has not yet said if he will run for governor.

However, in a speech to the Westchester County Association today, Astorino sounded like he may have been setting his sights for a run for governor.

The recurring theme in Astorino's speech was the value of collaboration, a theme behind a new bipartisan coalition on the County Board.

"We are 49-percent Democrat, 24-percent Republican," he said. "And whether you are liberal, moderate, or conservative, there is always a place for you in Westchester."

Some say Astorino's comment was a thinly veiled reference to a statement by Gov. Andrew Cuomo a few days ago. The governor said there is no place in New York for extreme conservatives.

Astorino's response was that Westchester welcomes all points of view.
