Town of Clarkstown Ranked #49 on Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live in Nation List

Published

on

NEW CITY, NY – Supervisor George Hoehmann announced that the most recent report released by Money Magazine ranked Clarkstown as one of the Best Places to Live in the nation.  Clarkstown, with approximately 86,000 residents, was ranked number 49 and was one of two towns in all of New York to rank on the list.
Money Magazine created the list by analyzing various data to weigh a town’s desirability as a place to live. The list was restricted to cities and towns that have populations between 25,000 to 500,000 and were ranked based on statistics related to economic opportunity, cost of living, housing affordability, school quality, income, arts and leisure options, safety, health care, and diversity.
“I am so proud of this wonderful honor for our Town,” said Supervisor George Hoehmann.  “Clarkstown is an amazing place to raise a family and also to settle down in retirement; we have so much to offer all ages from our excellent school system, to parks, senior centers, recreation programs, businesses, shopping, entertainment and more.”

Rep. Mondaire Jones on Build Back Better Act

Published

on

Congressman Mondaire Jones (D-NY) released the following statement:

“Today is an historic day for our nation, and for the great people of Westchester and Rockland Counties. Thanks to the leadership of progressives—who insisted on passing not just the bipartisan infrastructure bill, but also the larger Build Back Better Act—the House passed the most significant investment in our nation and our people in more than half a century.

The bill will guarantee that high-quality child care is affordable for every family in America; save the planet from climate catastrophe while creating millions of good-paying, union jobs; expand Medicare to include hearing; continue to cut child poverty in half through an extension of the expanded Child Tax Credit; make an historic investment in housing affordability; lift the cap on the State and Local Tax deduction that has unjustly burdened working families in Westchester and Rockland; and so much more.

I’m especially proud that this bill contains key provisions that I led the fight to secure: universal child care and an increase in the SALT deduction cap to $80,000.

This victory is a testament to the strength and tenacity of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, of which I’m proud to be a Deputy Whip, and which held the line throughout this process to ensure we passed a bill that meets this unprecedented moment of overlapping crises.

We in the House have done our job, and now our colleagues in the Senate must do theirs. I look forward to President Biden making good on his promise to secure 51 votes for the Build Back Better Act in the Senate expeditiously so we can get this bill onto his desk and begin delivering the change people in Westchester, Rockland, and across America need and deserve. The American people are counting on us to deliver, and we must do so without delay.”
