Westchester Legislator Testa will not seek a sixth term


WHITE PLAINS – Westchester County Legislator John Testa will not seek re-election this fall.

The Peekskill Republican’s political career spanned 22 years beginning with his election to the Peekskill City Council in 1997. He then served three terms as mayor and five terms on the county Board of Legislators.

“My record of fiscal responsibility is one I am very proud of. I wanted to also elevate the standing of Northern Westchester communities in county government and bring the appropriate resources and infrastructure improvements we deserve.”

Testa said he was pleased to have brought an office to Peekskill that provides free legal services for eligible Northern Westchester veterans, seniors and victims of domestic violence.

A Peekskill High School teacher for 33 years, he retired from his alma mater 2013.
