Westchester County executive candidates take different stance on public safety

Two weeks before Election Day and the candidates for Westchester county executive are taking very different approaches on the issue of public safety.

At county police headquarters in Hawthorne Tuesday, Democratic incumbent Andy Spano asked the state and federal government to outlaw the sale of fake air bag covers. He says there?s absoulety no use for the covers except to disguise the fact that people don?t have an air bag. Republican candidate Rob Astorino also presented his public safety plan Tuesday, promising to allocate more county police to patrol parkways like the Saw Mill. He also pledged to create a countywide emergency response plan.

Both candidates say they want to improve safety in Westchester.
