YONKERS, N.Y. -- Piedad Abreu, a local business owner and community leader running for election as County Legislator, promised today to have a strong attendance record for both the regular meetings of the Board of Legislators (BOL) and the BOL committee meetings if she is elected.
“Residents here in southwest Yonkers deserve a hard-working County Legislator who will represent them fully and with as much commitment and dedication as possible,” said Abreu. “I promise to be that legislator, and I promise to focus on the needs of the district while advocating loudly and often for better County services.”
A resident of southwest Yonkers for the past twenty-three years who is competing in a Democratic primary race against incumbent Virginia Perez, Abreu strongly criticized her rival today for her many absences from County meetings since 2012.
“Either you want to do the job, or you don’t—it’s simple as that,” said Abreu. “Looking at Virginia Perez’s attendance record since she has been in office shows me, that after almost four years, she still hasn’t committed herself to the representing her constituents as best as she can.”
