Miss the Mayoral debate last night on News12? Watch it online here!
White Plains has record low crime rates and is committed to community policing. Our city leads the way in Westchester County on adopting body cameras.
I'm proud that the White Plains PBA and the Affiliated Police Associations of Westchester inc. have endorsed me as I run for re-election, as well as my running mates, John Martin, John Kirkpatrick, and Justin Brasch. I wanted to share one quote from the PBA's letter explaining their endorsement: “Your honest, pragmatic, and hopeful insight into our community’s problems and needs, and your willingness to examine the issues and listen closely to the public’s questions and concerns, sets you far apart from the expected techniques and talk from other candidates.” I look forward to continuing to work together to keep White Plains safe.
A message from Congresswoman Nita Lowey, about next Tuesday's election: "I am pleased to endorse Mayor Tom Roach and his running mates, Common Council Members John Martin and John Kirkpatrick, and Council candidate Justin Brasch. We have worked together to strengthen our economy, ensure every resident - especially the most vulnerable - feels safe, and invest in our community to make White Plains an even better place to live, work and raise our families."
Great endorsement from the White Plains Examiner this week! They get it: White Plains is moving in the right direction, and we need leaders who'll stay focused on our future. Here’s what they said:
“If Mayor Tom Roach is to be measured by the work he has done, then he has accomplished much and has put White Plains on a solid path toward the future.”
“White Plains is experiencing a resurgence and new growth. The seeds for more success have been planted in the programs implemen...ted over the past seven years of Roach’s tenure. Despite the attacks and the negative spin, Mayor Roach has been good for White Plains and he deserves another terms to continue the programs he has begun to implement.”
It’s also important to note that, at a time when anonymous, slanderous fliers litter our city and cheapen our politics, that, as the Examiner noted, we don’t have to give in to the “special interest groups…[whose] behavior hurts the entire community.”
I’m proud to have served as your Mayor, and I hope you’ll join the Examiner in voting to continue with the progress we’ve made working together. And don’t forget to read their equally strong endorsements of my running mates, John Martin, John Kirkpatrick, and Justin Brasch either!
I'm proud to announce this morning that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has endorsed me for re-election! She's been tackling the important issues that matter most to us, and I look forward to continuing to work with her to move White Plains and our state forward.
Her endorsement: "Mayor Tom Roach has been an effective leader and a strong advocate for the people of White Plains. He is the right choice on Election Day, and I'm proud to endorse him." - U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
Great story and great video on yesterday's big win by the Tigers! Coach Gigli literally jumps for joy!
In light of a misleading mailer that went out today, I wanted to re-post this image I put up over the summer that should make crystal clear who I'm supporting for County Executive.
"It's amazing how many times people around New York State refer to White Plains as the model they want to follow. They want to be 'just like White Plains,' whet...her it's improving a downtown business district, embracing their historic past, investing in parks and recreation, or bringing in arts and cultural events. It's not just the natural advantages of White Plains: It's the leadership of White Plains." - Senator George Latimer, on why he's endorsing Mayor Tom Roach for re-election
Big news: I'm honored to announce that Senator Chuck Schumer has endorsed me for re-election! New York is lucky to have him in the United States Senate standing up for our values and for the middle class.
Here's his endorsement message: "Mayor Tom Roach has been a tireless advocate for the people of White Plains. Under his watch, White Plains has a thriving economy and is creating new opportunities for the middle class to thrive. Mayor Roach is the kind of leader that we can count on to ensure that White Plains continues to flourish and moves forward implementing progressive policies. I am proud to endorse him and strongly urge every voter to support him on November 7."
Moody's just ranked White Plains 6th in the nation in the competition to land Amazon's $5 billion HQ2. It's a sign of just how far our city has come!
