Vox Populi: The O'Shaughnessy Files

By William O’Shaughnessy | Go to book overview

ANDY SPANO TALKS ABOUT
WESTCHESTER MEDICAL
CENTER, HOMELESS SHELTERS,
HIS HAIR, AND HIS WIFE

In recent years many commentators and critics have
questioned the need for county government. We’ve covered
Westchester County executives all the way back to the
legendary Edwin Gilbert Michaelian (“Mr. Westchester”)
and all through the administrations of Andrew P.
O’Rourke, Alfred B. DelBello, and Andy Spano, who
presided over the Golden Apple until 2010 when Rob
Astorino, a radio producer and former member of the
County Board, upset the likeable Spano. We did this
interview with Spano five years earlier, on July 28, 2005,
when he was still riding high.

WILLIAM O’SHAUGHNESSY (W.O.): Ladies and gentlemen, how nice to be with you. This is Bill O’Shaughnessy. You may remember me. It’s been a time since I’ve enjoyed the privilege of your hearth and home and your good, fine, bright minds. This is what the Brits would call a “brilliant” day; it may be one of the ten nicest days of the year!

This is a special edition of “Westchester with O’Shaughnessy.” We were able today—thanks to Susan Tolchin—to beg a few moments of his schedule. He’s very busy, as you’ve read in the public press. Our guest for the next twenty-five minutes on WVOX is the County Executive of Westchester, the Golden Apple: Andy Spano.

ANDY SPANO (A.S.): It’s always a pleasure to be here with you, Bill.

W.O.: Why are you running again? Why the hell are you doing it?

A.S.: I think this a fantastic county. I’ve been in office eight years now. I think we’ve done a number of things that have improved the county and led to the enhancement of our quality of life in Westchester. I still have some unfinished business. I love the job.
