September Monthly Meeting: Catching Up with Assemblyman Buchwald
The September meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 7:30 pm at the Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. Our special guest will be Assemblyman David Buchwald, who represents the towns of Bedford, Harrison, Lewisboro, Mount Kisco, New Castle, North Castle, North Salem, Pound Ridge, and the City of White Plains.
David Buchwald, who interned for Congresswoman Nita Lowey, was elected to the White Plains Common Council in 2010, but soon moved on, assuming office as New York State Assemblyman for the 93rd district on January 1, 2013. He was well-prepared, having done his undergraduate work at Yale, taken a Masters in Political Science from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and capped off his education with a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
Mr. Buchwald is hard working. He chairs the Assembly’s Commission on Government Administration and sits on seven other committees ranging from the Committee on Consumer Affairs and Protection to the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Task Force. He works on issues that are important to his constituents but not always glamorous: power outages, transportation improvements, freedom of information, and the environment. And he’s doggedly effective: In 2013 he introduced an amendment to the New York State Constitution to enable the courts to strip government pensions from officials convicted of corruption. It took until 2017, but Voters overwhelmingly approved it.
The meeting is open to the public -- bring your friends and neighbors -- and will start promptly at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
This is sure to be a lively evening so please come early to allow time for audience participation and networking.
Annual WPCNA dues for 2019 are still only $25. Neighborhood association delegates should bring a check payable to WPCNA to the meeting or mail their check to WPCNA/Tom Osbeck PO Box 602 White Plains NY 10602. One check per association.
