A rally for change was held in Yonkers over the weekend where political candidates joined residents calling for an end to what they say is nepotism and corruption at City Hall.
"No more to the same old same old that we've been seeing year after year after year as it relates to City Hall and city government," said city council candidate Shatika Parker.
Parker was joined by mayoral candidate Corazon Pineda Isaac and Christopher Johnson, the majority leader of the Westchester Board of Legislators.
She declared "we are here to make sure that city hall is in the back in the hands of the city and the residents who live in this city."
A judge ruled last month the Yonkers City Council did not violate the city's code of ethics when it voted late last year to allow elected officials to serve four four-year terms.
