Peekskill Democratic Primary Sept 12!

Don’t forget to vote in the primaries! Find your polling place here.

From an article on Patch with info on all primaries throughout Westchester:

Topping the races is the contentious fight for Peekskill Common Council. There are five people vying for three lines on the Democratic ballot in November, and two of them are running on the GOP slate.

The five seeking the Democratic lines:

    Robert M. Sullivan
    Colin D. Smith
    Ramon A. Fernandez
    Luis A. Segarra
    Vanessa B. Agudelo

Segarra and Sullivan are running mates, picked by the Peekskill Republican Committee to run on its “Peekskill United” slate. Their entry into the race, forcing a Democratic Primary, caused fury among city Democrats. It led to the usual intra-party in-fighting following New York State’s arcane election laws.

What’s up Peekskill? Film fest and more!

Saturday: First Annual Nashkill Festival!

Over the years, Peekskill has been home to many great festivals. This year we get to add another fest to that long list; and it looks to be an excellent addition:

“Ten years ago, I left Kentucky for Broadway,” says event producer and vocalist Joni Blondell. “This is an opportunity to bring a little of the Kentucky front porch bluegrass and country music heritage for which I am home sick for to Peekskill. We have an incredible line up of performers. We hope to make this an annual event.”

Saturday, May 20
3pm – Midnight
Near Peekskill Riverfront Green:
Railroad Avenue, in front of Buns-N-Bourbon

What’s Up Peekskill? Breaking into Spring

“There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”
― George W. Bush

We hope you fooled some folks for April and are gearing up for a fun-filled Spring Break. The season seems to finally be upon us to get out and have a good time.
