Peter Parente Recieves Endorsement from Westchester VPAC

Candidate Peter Parente Thankfully Accepting His Latest Endorsement


City Council Candidate Peter Parente Receives Endorsement from VPAC

New Rochelle, New York – September 24, 2010 – Following his recent Republican Party nomination, Peter Parente, candidate for the City Council District 3 seat has been endorsed by the Veterans Political Action Committee of Westchester. Representing veteran’s interests, VPAC endorsed Peter Parente for his achievements and his unwavering commitment to supporting veteran’s affairs.

A Special Election is being held in the city on November 2nd 2010 to find a replacement for Councilman James Stowe who passed away unexpectedly on Aug 4th of this year. Parente, a successful business owner, United States Marine and veteran of Operation Desert Storm is known throughout the city for his active involvement in numerous community events.

Parente, a lifelong New Rochelle resident is probably best known for his leadership role in bringing about the return of the city’s Memorial Day Parade. A tribute to veterans, the parade attracts thousands of local people along with servicemen and women from all around the country each year, and is becoming the largest event held in the city. He has also taken the lead in the development and coordination of the 9/11 Memorial and Vigil in remembrance of the loss of life resulting from the September 11 attacks on our nation; all part of his long-standing commitment to community involvement.

Running on a platform that would, among other things, call for realignment of the city’s development policies that currently place tax burdens on residents as a result of tax abatements and PILOT programs issued to developers; a platform that encourages and supports neighborhood involvement in decisions most affecting their community, addresses the flooding issues in District 3, and supports expanded youth programs to deal with the many challenges faced by our youth. Parente has earned wide-spread community respect for his inherent leadership and ability to reach out and bring people to the table regardless of party affiliations or backgrounds.
