Vox Populi: The O'Shaughnessy Files

LATIMER FOR ASSEMBLY

George Latimer is a politician the way those of my father’s
time imagined them to be. Broadcast on October 29, 2004.

In the thirty-five years we’ve presumed to endorse and recommend candidates for public office, this is the easiest choice we’ve ever had to make: George Latimer is one of the finest political figures we’ve encountered in almost four decades.

Mr. Latimer served with distinction as chairman of the Westchester County Legislature and, briefly, as County Democratic chairman. This wonderfully appealing and good-natured man is almost the complete opposite of the greedy, selfish, upwardly mobile politicos who populate the body politic in this day and age. Especially at the local level.

George Latimer is a master of constituent service. It comes naturally to him. He is a man of infinite patience and a coalition builder of great resourcefulness. He is also a keen student of local governance who will, from the first day—the minute he is sworn in— almost instantly become a star in the Assembly of our state.

We’ve watched this fellow grow in wisdom and age for many years, and we’re delighted the voters of the Sound Shore Assembly District will finally have a chance to elevate a very savvy and superior public servant. And you, ladies and gentlemen, will be the beneficiaries of George Latimer’s remarkable dedication and commitment.

Indeed, this recognition of his extraordinary quality and many talents is long overdue. In the past, he’s been mentioned for lieutenant governor and the U.S. Congress. But Latimer, as gifted as he is, has always been reluctant to advance himself. But he sure knows how to advance the causes of his constituents.

This time, it appears, the people have spoken, and he has the solid support of Democrats in our area, as well as many of the Conservative supporters of Assemblyman Ron Tocci, who is stepping down after a long, distinguished career in Albany. Latimer will be a more than worthy successor.
