Longtime Greenburgh supervisor to face primary challenger set on making history
Longtime Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner will face a primary challenge this year from Tasha Young, an advocate, educator and social worker looking to make history as the town’s first African American and female town supervisor.
Young is currently the chief of staff to the New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo.
"My race and my gender are who I am. And then my experience is a compliment to what I would do as town supervisor. So I think that is a winning combination,” she told News 12.
Young says if elected, she would work to make Greenburgh’s government more inclusive and transparent.
Feiner is vying for his 16th two-year term in office. He says he welcomes the challenge.
“I'm pleased that there is a contested election. That's what democracy is all about," he said.
Feiner added that while there is always room for improvement, he believes overall the town is doing a great job.
"We have a AAA bond rating. We had zero tax increases the last two years…during the snowstorm very few complaints,” he said.
The primary will be held this June.
