HUDSON VALLEY, N.Y. - PCSB Bank has announced the election of Willard Hill, Jr., an attorney with extensive executive leadership experience in financial services, to its Board of Trustees. In addition, Hill has been elected to serve as a director of the bank’s new holding company, PCSB Financial Corp.

“Willard Hill’s expertise in corporate, insurance, and financial services law, as well as government relations and strategic communications, will be a significant resource for PCSB Bank as we move into a new phase as a shareholder-owned company,” said Joseph D. Roberto, chairman, president and chief executive officer of PCSB Bank. “He has a proven track record as an influential, strategic, and innovative leader with public companies.”

Hill served as managing director, chief marketing and communications officer and head of government relations for MBIA Inc., a major financial guarantee insurance company. Previously, he held a position on MBIA's executive management team as global chief compliance officer, and separately as head of investor relations.

Hill retired from MBIA in 2013. Earlier in his career, he was president of the government deferred compensation business at ING US Financial Services (now Voya Financial) and held senior executive positions in the legal and business divisions at Aetna, Inc.

Hill earned his MBA from the University of Connecticut School of Business, a juris doctor from Howard University School of Law, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Fisk University. He serves on the board of directors of the Council for Economic Education and the Food Bank for Westchester.

“I look forward to working with PCSB Bank's board and management to meet the financial needs of individuals and businesses in our market and continue the bank’s long history of service to its customers,” Hill said.

In December 2016, PCSB Bank announced that its Board of Trustees had unanimously approved a Plan of Conversion, whereby it will convert from a New York-chartered mutual savings bank to a New York-chartered stock savings bank. As part of that conversion, PCSB Bank will become the wholly-owned subsidiary of a new corporation, named PCSB Financial Corporation, which will become the bank holding company of PCSB Bank.

The DACA Dilemma and the Trick of the Trickle-Down Theory

Here is our very own Sen. Charles Schumer on the Senate floor last week: “President Trump has stood in the way of a bipartisan solution to DACA, a problem he created in the first place, and yet the president is in this dream world. He thinks, ‘Oh, I can blame Democrats for the impasse.’ As I said, only in the 1984 world where up is down and black is white could this be true.

Cuomo’s Frivolous Lawsuits Cost Us Money

Since Donald Trump became president, New York State has filed more than 100 lawsuits against the federal government. This includes those filed by both Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It does not include lawsuits filed by the City of New York. Most of them are political in nature, filed to please the plaintiffs’ voting base. In the real world, if we had filed ...

Big Brother Comes to Mahopac

High-tech, government-controlled, eavesdropping devices—listening and watching and prying into our everyday lives—are becoming pervasive. They are being positioned on the streets and highways we travel and they can be programmed to enter our homes and workplaces through the lenses and microphones of the PCs and smartphones we use.    

Of growing concern is the ...

Beautiful, 'Clean' Coal

After completing his first full year in office—an alarming year, at that— Donald Trump has concluded that climate change is not a significant national threat and that the sacred lands and waters of this country should be sold to the highest bidder. 

The Trump administration has withdrawn from the Paris climate agreement; deregulated national landmarks; freed public lands for ...

I Love 'I Hate Hamlet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

A Trip to the 'Liberry'

Raise your hand if you didn’t—did not—call the library the “liberry” when you were little. I’m guessing not a lot of hands just went up.

Didn’t just about all of us say “liberry” when we were learning to read? (Well, whaddya expect when a place is named something way too easy for little kids to mispronounce?)

OK. Now, raise your hand if ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

I'm Mrs. Heat Miser

To be perfectly honest, I did not need a large rodent with insomnia to convince me that we had six more weeks of winter. It’s been so cold outside lately that when I go out, my nostrils stick together. The dog is so hesitant to go out that he does his business right on the deck, less than five feet from the door, and then gives me a look of contemptuous indignation when he comes back in the ...

Bazzo Needs to Get His Facts Straight

February 15, 2018

To the editor,

Once again Mr. Bazzo, in his Feb. 8, column cherry picks facts, ignores other facts, passes along lies and spins so fast to the right that it’s amazing he doesn’t drill himself into the earth.

Bazzo is correct—the economy is doing well, and we should give credit where credit is due. Thank you, President Obama for taking the economy from the brink of another ...
