Homeless in Westchester

By R.J. MARX

For the homeless during the coldest and harshest days of winter, shelter becomes a matter of life and death. We remember all too well the five local fatalities in Bedford and Mount Kisco between 2008 and 2010, attributable to the consequences of living outdoors in the cold.

At a December presentation before the Westchester County Board of Legislators, Kevin McGuire, commissioner of Westchester County Department of Social Services, offered promising reductions in the county’s shelter population. Mr. McGuire reported that the county has reduced its shelter population from “basically full,” to a vacancy rate of 22 percent. “We’ve done a lot of work in moving people out of our shelter system, preventing them from being homeless in the first place — many who had been in the shelter system for some time,” Mr. McGuire said at the meeting. “Compared to other localities, their populations have gone up, and ours have gone down.”

Pete Harckham won’t run in November

By R.J. MARX

County legislator Peter Harckham announced Tuesday that he would not be seeking a new term this November.

On Tuesday morning, he made the announcement on Facebook. “I have loved this job like no other I’ve had, but it is time to move in a new direction for my family and for my career,” he wrote.

“I want to thank the people of northeast Westchester for four times giving me the honor of serving you on the Westchester County Board of Legislators, and I look forward to working with you in the year to come,” he said in an interview later Tuesday.  Read more >
