IN THE NEWS--ETHICS COMPLAINTS FACE SUSTAINABLE WESTCHESTER

Welcome to The New Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

Sustainable Westchester, the nonprofit corporation that serves as the default supplier of electricity for 38% of Westchester households, finds itself engulfed in an ethics dispute that invalidated New Rochelle’s contract for power and may spill over into other municipalities.

The problems in New Rochelle have deepened with a second ethics complaint filed by independent journalist Robert Cox, who in December detailed his investigation for his Substack publication, Words in Edgewise.

That’s when New Rochelle City Manager Kathleen Gill took action following an investigation by the New Rochelle Board of Ethics into Cox's complaint. It focused on votes taken by then-Mayor Noam Bramson and City Councilwoman Sara Kaye, who both served on the Sustainable Westchester Board of Directors.  MORE AT Ethics complaints face Sustainable Westchester deal in New Rochelle NY (lohud.com)
