County Executive George Latimer Statement On Passover

Westchester County Executive George Latimer earlier today released the following statement wishing all a Happy Passover this year,

“Once again, Westchester residents who observe will be gathering in their homes for Seder to mark the beginning of Passover. This special time signifies the importance of coming together to overcome discrimination and persecution, a message that should not only be reserved for this time but rather year round. As I have often said before, our County excels because of its diversity and this diversity should be celebrated. I wish a Happy Passover to our Jewish brothers and sisters who celebrate.”
