“I am deeply concerned about the latest rash of vandalism, this time in Yorktown,  directed against Judaism and Christianity.  My office is in communication with the Town and have offered the help and support of Human Rights Commission and the Westchester County Public Safety Department.

“We take these incidents with utmost seriousness. They are the reflection of a spreading sickness that encourages public expression of hatred. We reject this behavior fully and completely.

“I urge all residents to stand in solidarity against hate and intimidation. Know that the entire County of Westchester stands with you. Together we must work to teach tolerance and kinship, and let those who want to shatter our unity, and destroy the peace we enjoy, understand that expressions of hate have no home in Westchester County. We will push back in every manner possible to assure that everyone is safe from such hatred.”
