[ARCHIVED] Local history - biography about former County Executive Al Del Bello who changed Westchester

John Lipman wrote a fascinating book about Al Del Bello who changed Westchester for the better

Al Del Bello, former Mayor of Yonkers, (a resident of Hastings for a while), the first Democrat to serve as Westchester County Executive, Lt Governor of NYS, an accomplished attorney, was one of Westchester County's most accomplished County Executive. He successfully pushed for the construction of one of the nation's first garbage to energy plants, enhanced public transportation and bus service, created county parks, started Bicycle Sundays and built bike paths, addressed infrastructure problems and inspired young people to go into public service.   He fought corruption in Yonkers.  I got my start in politics serving on his Bikeway Committee and had such a great experience dealing with him. Former NYS Assemblyman Richard Brodsky worked in his office before being elected a Legislator and Assemblyman.   Al Del Bello changed Westchester for the better.


John Lipman, whose mom worked for Al Del Bello for many years, wrote a biography about Al Del Bello. I interviewed John on my WVOX radio show recently.
