YONKERS, NY -- Governor George E. Pataki and Mayor Philip A. Amicone of Yonkers last week endorsed Carmen Gómez Goldberg for Westchester County Legislator for Yonkers District 17, both stating that she is the most experienced and qualified candidate in the race.
“I am proud to call Carmen Gómez Goldberg my friend. Her strength and tenacity are qualities I know first hand and relied upon working together in the trenches when I was Governor. Carmen is an independent accountable leader with a 35 year proven track record of success in Westchester County. She is a powerhouse as an entrepreneur and political advisor. She has a unique ability to handle problems diplomatically and effectively – one person at a time – one issue at a time. She is a consensus builder whose only objective is to get what her community needs resolved. With Carmen’s experience I have no doubt that she can and will persuade her colleagues to stop out of control spending, find a better way to streamline Government and make it more efficient and accountable to the people. I am proud today to endorse, mi amiga, Carmen Gómez Goldberg for Westchester County Legislator of District 17th in Yonkers,” said Governor George E. Pataki.
Mayor Philip A. Amicone said, “Carmen Gómez Goldberg has always been there for me when I have needed her as a friend, advisor and supporter and I am here for her today! Carmen is passionate, honest and has the experience needed to serve the people of all Westchester County. To me that makes her the best qualified candidate in this race hands down. What District 17 of Yonkers and Westchester County needs is an experienced professional who has lived, worked and is invested in this community. Understands what needs to get done and works to accomplish it. Carmen is that person. I am endorsing Carmen Gómez Goldberg because she is the best qualified candidate in this race.”
“I am humbled and proud of the support of these two great men. Governor Pataki, thank you, for your encouragement, support, friendship and loyalty throughout these years, it has meant a great deal to me especially when my son David was in Iraq. I will never forget your words of support and your actions. Mayor Amicone thank you for standing here with me today, we have worked hard to make Yonkers better and I promise both of you and the people of Yonkers and Westchester County that I will live up to your support and faith in me,” said Gómez Goldberg .
