Astorino makes last bid to end supermajority on County Board

County Executive Rob Astorino (R-Westchester) is making his final pitch today to voters, hoping to break the Democrats' veto-proof supermajority on the Westchester County Board.

Republicans say the Democrats are using the supermajority to block all proposals made by Astorino.

While all the seats are up for re-election this year, three Democrats are running unopposed, including County Board Chair Ken Jenkins. Only one Republican is running unopposed.

For Republicans to break the Democrats' supermajority, all they need to do is pick up one seat tomorrow in the election.
