After years of uncertainty and delay, County Executive George Latimer proudly broke ground on Memorial Field in the City of Mount Vernon. In keeping his promise to the people of Mount Vernon, Latimer gave an update on the progress of the Memorial Field Complex Reconstruction Project.

Latimer said: “When I first became County Executive nearly four years ago, I made a commitment to the people of Mount Vernon – and to myself – that I would not rest until the lights were back on and the grandstands were filled at Memorial Field. This place is personal for me, this is my hometown, and I am using the time that I have been given to see this project through. I watched some of my childhood heroes sporting events on that field, I saw major concerts on that field – and I even received my High School diploma on that field. Memorial Field will soon be open again for generations of Mount Vernon residents to enjoy.”
