I confidently endorse Omar Herrera for the position of Village of Ossining Mayor. His well-known commitment to accountability in government will promote an atmosphere of fairness, as I have often witnessed from this tireless advocate in the past. He reaches out to members of our diverse population, to those who may otherwise be excluded or passed over in our community. I feel it is important to notice the loyalty and devotion he has already demonstrated as a village Trustee and volunteer in Ossining for many years.
On a personal note – Omar co-produced a concert with me at The Paramount Hudson Valley, back in 2014. Needless to say, that enormous theatre sold out, and I have never witnessed such a hard working professional and problem-solving partner in business. He put his heart and soul into the project as we involved over 350 local school-aged musicians and dancers from 10 different schools. We worked together with many different personalities and talent levels and I observed ‘first hand ‘ his incredible work ethic and his outstanding ability to pull people together. These are all traits that we should hope for in a man representing our community.
I am writing to support Omar Herrera’s campaign and it is my intention both to vote for him in the upcoming election and to spread word to others of the value and power of his political beliefs and abilities to make our precious community run smoothly.

I support Omar Herrera, because he not only is a man of faith but of vision. Despite his age he has years of experience working with village, county and state government. Which makes him the perfect person to ensure that we have the right balance of good government that will address the needs and concerns of the entire village, and not just certain segments. I am more than confident that as our next mayor Omar will lead Ossining into a brighter future where, current and new businesses will thrive, real affordable housing is a reality, seniors will be cared for, and youth can engage in transformative programming.

"Beyond that, Omar is a natural business promoter who has created and helped others groups like the Greater Ossining of Commerce organize events and programming that show what a great place this Village is to live, work and play in it is.

I stand with Omar because I have personally witnessed how far he goes to help our local business community. He has walked me through village red-tape as well as always seeking out my input with actual follow up. He wants all businesses to be treated and enforced fairly, and he fights to ensure that.
