Editor’s note: This press release was provided by the Progressive Women of Pelham.

The Progressive Women of Pelham NY Board has endorsed candidate Mimi Rocah in her race for Westchester County DA, a declaration of support in advance of the County Democratic Convention on Jan. 29.

“Mimi has incredible experience, and her values align beautifully with ours,” said PWP Co-Chair Marisa Panzani. “She reached out to us, attended a meeting and spoke with a number of our members. We were impressed with her grasp of the issues and detailed plans for improving the DA office’s performance, particularly her comments about increasing transparency and improving the Conviction Integrity Unit.”

Rocah is challenging current Westchester District Attorney Anthony Scarpino in a Democratic primary. “The past few years have made clear that we can’t simply rubber-stamp incumbents for re-election,” noted PWP Co-Chair Paula Wood. “The question has to be: who will be best in office? In this case, we believe the answer is: Mimi Rocah.”
