“On behalf of the Republican Legislators, It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of former County Executive Andrew O’Rourke. As County Executive, Chairman of the Board of Legislators, Yonkers City Councilman and New York Supreme Court Justice, Andy O’Rourke always served the people of Westchester County with visionary leadership, dedication and compassion. His actions and commitment to this county were directly responsible for dramatic improvements to the Westchester County government. A true gentleman, Andy O’Rourke was always charming, witty and gracious to everyone he encountered and one of the greatest public speakers that Westchester has ever seen. The residents of Westchester County owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. O’Rourke and his legacy will be that he truly made Westchester a better place for all its residents.”
