NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Residents throughout Westchester now can conveniently and safely dispose of their unused medications in a secure dropbox, accessible day or night in nearly every municipality.

The county’s newest dropbox is in New Rochelle, in the lobby at police headquarters, at 475 North Ave. Recently delivered by Westchester County, it was one of 12 purchased last year through an $8,000 grant secured by Sen. Terrence P. Murphy in response to the growing opioid addiction crisis.

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- There is widespread speculation that Noam Bramson may become the next Deputy Westchester County Executive in a George Latimer Administration.

Bramson has dismissed the rumors.

"The rumor-mill is demonstrating its usual accuracy," Bramson told Talk of the Sound. "I have had no conversations about and have devoted no thought to this possibility."

While discounting the idea, Bramson's response is not Shermanesque either. And the rumors have only grown louder.

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Open Enrollment is the time each year when you can sign up for health insurance if you don’t already have coverage through your job, Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, or another sort of health coverage - or shop around for better coverage if you already have insurance through the State exchange. The majority of states are on the federal exchange and use HealthCare.gov, which means individuals must sign up by December 15, but here in New York, the deadline has been extended to January 31, 2018.

Democrats Swamp Republicans in Westchester as Latimer Wins Landslide Victory over Astorino

WHITE PLAINS, NY — Riding a national wave of anti-Trump sentiment, Westchester County Democrats crushed Republicans throughout the County.

Voters tossed out incumbent County Executive Rob Astorino, who was thumped by State Senator George Latimer by a margin of 14 points, 57-43.

Westchester residents have given Latimer four years to make good on his promise to put the County’s financial house in order despite his documented inability to manage affairs in his own home. It should make for an interesting four years.
