Supervisor Matt Slater has joined the Business Council of Westchester’s Economic Recovery Task Force.
Economic Recovery Task Force is developing a comprehensive plan to provide specific recovery measures for Westchester’s diverse business and not-for-profit sectors. Supervisor Slater will share his perspective and help the group formulate initiatives that include northern Westchester’s special needs.
“I’m grateful to the Business Council of Westchester for their invitation to join this critical group. As we inch closer to a Covid-19 vaccine, our county’s governments, businesses and institutions must work together to forge a recovery that benefits all our residents,” said Supervisor Slater. “Throughout the pandemic downturn, Yorktown aggressively pursued a recovery agenda that has already borne fruit in terms of new investments and redevelopment of languishing properties.”
The Task Force, comprised of more than 40 leaders from a broad spectrum of economic sectors across Westchester, first met in May to begin development of a strategic plan for providing coordinated assistance to businesses as the County’s economy reemerges from the unprecedented pandemic.
“As we emerge from this crisis it is critically important that we have the strategies and plans in place that will let us hit the ground running,’’ said BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon. “We are thrilled to have Supervisor Slater join our group and we are eager to learn about his revitalization efforts for Yorktown.”
The county’s largest and most influential business membership organization, The Business Council of Westchester is committed to helping businesses market, learn, advocate and grow. In addition, The Business Council of Westchester is actively involved in reviewing federal, state and county legislation and regulations in order to assess the potential impact on the business community and to influence the outcomes through advocacy when the business community’s interests may be affected.
