Exec. Astorino's chief of staff apologizes for email

County Executive Rob Astorino's (R-Westchester) chief of staff is publicly apologizing for an email he sent to a female county lawmaker.

George Oros wrote what many are calling a sexually suggestive note about Legislator Judith Myers (D-District 7) while she was speaking at a committee meeting Tuesday. He then accidently sent the email to her, which also refers to Legislator Bill Burton (D-District9) .

Oros commented on the incident, saying in part, "I have personally apologized to both legislators and I regret my comments and am truly sorry they were offended."

Following the incident, several county officials called for Oros' resignation, but Astorino says that he has no plans to fire his chief of staff.

Myers says she is upset over the email, saying "It is not a game, as the county executive has suggested to me. It is an extremely uncomfortable experience." She says she may still take her complaint to human resources.
