Yonkers mayor fires his chief of staff
Yonkers Mayor Phil Amicone fired his top aide Tuesday night.
Chief of Staff Kathy Spring-Spencer has worked with the mayor for a year and a half and is the wife of former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer. Spencer was a political mentor to Amicone. However, he says now he wants to distance himself from the Spencers.
Amicone says Kathy Spring-Spencer did not share the same philosophy on running the city and the office. He adds they disagreed on the course of action on many issues and he needed to make a change. Amicone did cite the Angelo Petrone hiring scandal as one of the issues.
Amicone did not say who would replace Spring-Spencer.
