Astorino looks to score 3rd term over Democratic challengerPosted: Updated:
County Executive Rob Astorino cast his vote today and is hoping to score another four years in office.
Astorino is looking for his third term, and says he believes the race will boil down to taxes. "I think people are really focusing on the issues, this is not about the national stuff. People are voting on their pocketbooks here in Westchester where we're overtaxed and we've held the line versus somebody who has a history of raising them so I think that's what it really comes down to," says Astorino.
The county executive is facing off against Democratic challenger George Latimer. Astorino's campaign spent big money digging into Latimer's personal financial history, which included unpaid parking tickets and property taxes.
This election is important to Astorino's future plans to possibly run for governor again. Latimer has run for office 17 times and has never lost, but Astorino is hoping that comes to an end.
