(White Plains, NY) – Former Board Majority Leader and six-term Westchester County Legislator Marty Rogowsky (D-Harrison) was sworn in during a community ceremony on Friday, January 15th.  Rogowsky first served as the Sixth District’s County Legislator from 1990-1993, returning in March 2002 after winning a special election.  Rogowsky, who was joined by family, friends and community residents at the Harrison Senior Center, was officially sworn in by The Honorable Judge Marc Lust, Town Justice for Harrison. “I’m honored to be given the opportunity to serve the people of the 6th District, again, in the County Legislature,” said Rogowsky, whose legislative record spans over several decades.  “In this new term, pledge to work with our new County Executive and my colleagues on the Board to help move Westchester forward on a road to economic recovery and smarter government.”   

 

Rogowsky, the immediate past Majority Leader of the Board and newly-appointed Chair of the Board’s Committee on Energy, started his career in public service in the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs. Later in his career, Rogowsky headed to Washington, DC to serve in the US Department of Energy where he held several jobs including Deputy Assistant General Counsel for the Environment and Acting Director of the Environment, Health and Safety in the Office of Fossil Energy. Rogowsky also spent three months on temporary assignment to the White House Domestic Policy Staff.  In 1998, former County Executive Andy Spano appointed Legislator Rogowsky chairman of the Westchester County Public Utility Service Agency where he served until his election to the County Legislature.
