Committee to Elect Peter Tripodi

Dear Friend:

Thank you for the positive support over these past three years.  As we approach our fourth, and a very important election in between, let’s remember that we as a community need to stand together in these tough economic times.  Please continue to write and call me with your concerns and questions, I appreciate and welcome your insight and input. Cheers!
Councilman Tripodi

Hire Local

On Monday, September 24, The Ossining Town Board passed a resolution requiring Ossining Department heads to exhaust all efforts in hiring local residents before non-residents.  Although I could not make the meeting I enthusiastically support this resolution and new town policy. This is a good thing.
According to the data, Ossining hit its highest unemployment rate in 22 years this past July at 7.8%. This is a bad thing.  While many can point the blame at someone else, it takes a real leader to try and do something about it.  The Ossining Town Board has done just that, and I am encouraging local businesses to do the same.  Hiring local can help alleviate the burden so many friends and families are currently facing.  Even if it is part time, seasonal employment; having some kind of income is better than having nothing. Taxes are too high, seniors are leaving, young people are leaving, and our community faces a tough task ahead.  But, if we can come together, as the Town Board did this past Monday, and try to face our problems head on we can accomplish a great deal.  Shop local, hire local, be local.
In the coming weeks the Town will also unveil a committee tasked at doing this very same thing.  I am asking that volunteers from all parts of our community participate and join this committee.
