It is with great pleasure that I endorse Kevin Hansan for the position of Town Supervisor. As a former resident of the Village of Bedford and founder and co-chair of the Hispanic Democrats of Westchester, I have personal knowledge of Kevin’s compassion for all people, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or immigration status. He is an individual who is willing to listen to alternative points of view and to learn from them to act on what is right. In addition, Kevin has a strong understanding of how the different branches and levels of government work so that he will be able to assume the position of Supervisor running.
A local government in the hands of an individual who is compassionate and forward-thinking is critical today. All levels of government need to be proactive and technologically savvy to bring efficiency and cost savings to the taxpayer. Kevin has over 20 years’ experience in bringing new technology to different governmental entities.
Most importantly to Pound Ridge, is Kevin’s understanding of the need to protect all its residents. Given the harsh treatment without any due process that our immigrant community faces by the federal government, it is important that all cities, towns and villages in Westchester County become sanctuary cities, towns and villages.
I have known Kevin and his family for over 20 years and am heartened by his desire to bring his knowledge, interest, compassion and talent on behalf of the residents of Pound Ridge. I am proud to endorse his candidacy for Pound Ridge Supervisor and hope that the voters of Pound Ridge will support him on election day.
Robin A Bikkal
