Hometown Paper Rejects Bob Cohen: Scarsdale Inquirer Endorses Suzi Oppenheimer over Scarsdale Opponent

Scarsdale, NY – Westchester’s oldest and most prestigious weekly paper, The Scarsdale Inquirer, today endorsed Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) for re-election. As a result, her opponent, Republican Bob Cohen, was abandoned by the very newspaper editorial board that knows him best.

Noting “she was reinvigorated by her first crack at majority leadership in the Senate,” the newspaper praised Senator Oppenheimer’s role in the Senate, which “has accomplished things in the past term that we have long advocated: enacting no-fault divorce and ending the Rockefeller drug laws.”

Less than two years ago, Ms. Oppenheimer was appointed chair of the Education once the Senate assumed Democratic leadership after more than six decades of Republican rule. Immediately, she declared a moratorium on any unfunded educational mandates. Later, she sponsored the Mandate Relief Law to lower costs to schools and pass on the savings to property taxpayers. She also authored and passed the landmark 2010 Education Reform Law, which was instrumental in delivering $700 million in federal “Race to the Top” to New York State.

Mamaroneck, NY – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer has endorsed Suzi Oppenheimer for State Senate, citing her ability to break through the Albany gridlock and her leadership on education reforms that will better prepare New York students for the challenges of the 21st century.

As the Chair of the Senate Education Committee, Oppenheimer led the fight this year to pass landmark education reforms that were instrumental in delivering $700 million in federal Race to the Top funds to schools in New York State. She has also fought for a permanent state-level solution to Westchester’s property tax crisis and has worked to balance environmental issues with opportunities for economic development and job creation.

“Suzi Oppenheimer has been a knowledgeable and determined advocate for New York, especially on issues of importance to Westchester such as education, flood control, and lowering burdensome property taxes,” said Senator Schumer. “We have worked together to protect the citizens of Westchester County. Suzi’s leadership was critical to New York winning the federal Race to the Top competition. There is no question that Westchester needs her skilled service.”
