“We have carefully considered the two candidates running for County Executive, and the choice is clear,” said the association’s president, John Park. “Over the past 4 years, Rob Astorino has managed the County Government with the vision, integrity and balanced judgment, vision of a true leader, a leader who keeps his promises and sticks to his convictions.”
