Astorino: No topic off limits at town hall meeting
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino held a town hall meeting Wednesday night in Port Chester that came just a few weeks after what turned out to be a raucous town hall event in White Plains.
He began his third town hall with a message for immigrants, emphasizing that they are welcome and should not be afraid.
The divisive issue prompted the crowd to yell "speak English" as the executive attempted to explain his answers in Spanish and English.
Other issues brought up include the gun show at the Westchester County Center, which Astorino says is well-attended and makes big bucks.
He also spoke of county initiatives like the Kensico Dam project and the county's airport, while highlighting affordable housing and the impact of the closure of the Indian Point nuclear power plant.
Astorino has been holding town hall meetings monthly since the beginning of the year. No date has been set for April's meeting.
