Abzun Has the Temperament, Knowledge of Mt. Kisco to Be the Next Mayor

We are part of The Trust Project

As one of the Mount Kisco Democratic Party district leaders who enthusiastically voted for Lisa Abzun over Tom Luzio to be candidate for mayor, and with the recent article on problems with Tom’s petitions, I want to add to the conversation.

A previous article in The Examiner pointed out that Lisa has deep roots in Mount Kisco. She brings a wide variety of skills and experiences to her current role as deputy mayor and will use them when she becomes mayor. She realizes that issues can be complex and puts in the effort to understand them. She is kind, calm and someone who listens. Last weekend, Lisa, along with her co-chair on the Mount Kisco Arts Council, demonstrated her talents and warmth toward young and old at the Earth Day events held at the Mount Kisco Public Library.

Her opponent, Tom Luzio, asks us to get to know him. This is appropriate. However, it is critically important that he also put in the work to know Mount Kisco better. People have signed affidavits affirming that they were victims of voter tampering. Tom is insensitive to their concerns. At the meeting of the Mount Kisco Democratic Committee, he demonstrated indignation, to the point of anger, at general comments made in a letter that touched on the importance of community involvement. This type of dramatic behavior may be called for at times in a courtroom. It was scary at the meeting. Tom has not demonstrated the attributes of leadership needed to be mayor.

Lisa turned in petitions with over 400 signatures and there were no challenges. She continues to reach out and connect with residents and business owners in Mount Kisco to find out their concerns, such as pedestrian and traffic safety and medical care. Lisa is serving our community now and will continue to serve it in the future. She has earned our support.

Thank you for your attention.
