White Plains is moving in the right direction under Tom Roach's leadership. To keep it that way, Tom needs his team on the City Council. They're all also endorsed by the White Plains Democratic City Committee.
"White Plains has a top notch city government in place, one that is committed to the idea that everyone is welcome in our city. We are one city moving in the right direction, united by our shared values, and I'm running for re-election to keep it that way."
