Platform

To my friends and constituents:
I come from a large family. We knew what it was like to budget and to put education and housing at the top of the list. I am proud to have raised my children in a great community, and to have spent 12+ years cultivating connections with both the business community and public officials that keep our community running. As a local businessperson, I prioritize customers and high quality products. My local government has supported our efforts and makes it a great partnership. I want to take this cooperation to the County Level.
Let's keep Westchester moving by continuing to support the high-quality schools, parks and dedicated police and fire departments that keep Westchester working. Our educated workforce brings businesses to Westchester, helps these businesses grow, and ultimately keeps them here. I want to be a representative that helps these businesses grow and amplifies the voices of my constituents in their local government. This campaign is one shaped by your ideas and driven by your hopes for a better county. Thank you.   
Yours truly,

ruth ON THE ISSUES

ENVIRONMENT

 

This district is a historically beautiful and unique area of our state. Working with legislators across the County, Ruth will fight to keep our water clean, our air clear, and our environment pure. She will continue to support environmental reform at the county level by partnering with the County Government's Climate Crisis Task Force and reputable environmental organizations such as the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County.

BUDGETING
 
As a small business owner and library president, Ruth has worked with both municipal and private sector budgets. Going line by line is vital when considering what our district must pay for through taxes, and every dollar counts. Ruth will reject wasteful spending, and vote only for budgets that reflect our values.

TAXES

 

As a small business owner in Westchester, Ruth is always looking at the bottom line. Without hard work and careful cost-cutting, small businesses will go under. We need responsible and careful stewardship of our tax dollars in White Plains. No project should go forward that isn’t a good investment in our communities, and no budgetary tricks should be pulled on the taxpayers of our county.

EDUCATION

 

Like all mothers, Ruth wants her children to be prepared to work and live in the new economy. Whether it's her kids or yours, our schools deserve support from local government. Our legislator needs to make sure that our district's kids have access to all the resources they deserve. Ruth intends to be that legislator.

FLOODING

 

Whether you live on Palmer Road in Yonkers or Garden Avenue in Bronxville, you know that our district has a chronic problem with flooding. By working with local planning boards to develop impactful mitigating solutions to address our considerable flooding each year, Ruth knows we can address this problem before it happens again. 

BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT

Online retail poses stiff competition to traditional small retail in our district. Ruth recognizes this and supports the creation of a business-improvement district on Central Park Avenue in Yonkers. We need to stand up for our local businesses, and help them prepare to thrive among a new, technology-based economy.

TRANSPARENCY
Ruth wants to be a representative that can connect constituents to the resources they need, and she pledges to be a legislator that shows up to work and prioritizes your agenda over politics. You come first, and it’s about time we have a legislator who recognizes that.

Do you believe in Ruth's vision?
