Each video will highlight women in Latimer’s administration who have done an exemplary job for Westchester.

County Executive George Latimer is extremely proud of Westchester’s diverse workforce – especially those who are women working in County government. Latimer’s administration consists of a vast majority of high-ranking women professionals, more than any past administration, who have done an exemplary job for Westchester County. These women hold positions such as Director of Operations, Director of Communications and Director of Economic Development, as well as serving as Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners for County departments. 

Throughout the month of October, Westchester County Government will profile women who are providing key leadership for the County. Each woman has their own story to tell, and each one has overcome various obstacles to achieve their success.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “All of the women that you will meet this month have joined our administration because they believed their background and perspective could help ensure a better life for the people of Westchester County. As professionals and as successful women in County government, I am proud of each and every one of them for their steadfast commitment towards improving the County we all love to call home.”
