Westchester County Executive Gives Civics Lesson at Waterstone of Westchester During President’s Day Visit

Westchester County Executive George Latimer addresses Waterstone residents.

Westchester County performs a vital function in the lives of Westchester County residents.

That was the message Westchester County Executive George Latimer had for residents of Waterstone of Westchester, White Plains’ newest luxury senior living community. Latimer paid a visit to Waterstone last week in advance of President’s Day.

“Westchester County is a regional level of government and performs many functions that your local governments or the federal government don’t,’’ said Latimer. “Many of the services we provide are not as visible, but still important.’’

Latimer pointed to the parks, sewage treatment plants, jails and social services as examples of services provided by the county. The county’s chief executive also praised a few residents in the audience who had served in local governments including Harry Bright who was Executive Director of the Human Rights Commission and at one time was Latimer’s teacher and coach.

“He did not brook any nonsense,’’ joked Latimer about Bright. Latimer said that older adults should not be overlooked as he has discovered that like Bright many led very accomplished lives. “You meet people and you find out later on that he was the person who invented the light bulb or she was a famous opera singer. I’m sure this building is filled with talented people who decided to come here. It’s a very impressive place.’’
