The Somers Democratic Committee hosted a Retirement Roast for County Legislator Mike Kaplowitz, who is stepping down from his role after two decades of service. His district included the southern portion of Yorktown.

The Yankee-themed retirement bash was held on July 25 at the Mount Kisco Masonic Lodge.

The entry ticket for the event was a bag of non-perishable food items for the Somers Food Pantry in recognition of Kaplowitz’s 22 years of service to the county and the residents of Westchester.  

With all the donations, the Somers Democrats were able to deliver 60 bags of groceries and a $1,000 check to Kathy Casella at the Somers Food Pantry.
