Westchester County Board Members Upset With County Chief Of Staff After Email Snafu

WHITE PLAINS, NY (WCBS 880) — An email snafu has the Westchester County Executive’s Office red in the face.

Some county board members are calling on county executive Rob Astorino to fire his chief of staff George Oros.

They say Oros accidentally sent an email meant for another reader to legislator Judy Myers. In the email, Oros makes fun of Myers, writing “Sounds so breathless” and then an exaggerated, “Oh Yes.”

County board chairman Ken Jenkins says Oros, who also makes fun of legislator Bill Burton in the email, was beyond disrespectful.

“If he worked for me on the board of legislators, he would be fired,” said Jenkins. “It’s just that simple.”

Meanwhile the county executive’s office says Oros will not be fired and he has already apologized.

  • Jenkins is a liar

    Ken Jenkins is a self aggrandizing liar. He has lower than dirt standards for those he hires as evidenced by the fact that they can barely read and write.
    Want to talk about sexist? Start with Jose Alvarado.
    BTW Jenkins’ own voice is a cross between Mike Tyson and Elmer Fudd.

    Het Ken Jenkins if you want to fire anyone; you have a cocaine user on your board. Gordon Burrows

    Oh please. This is what’s wrong with this country. We always want to stick our nose into personal business that isn’t our concern. I don’t care if he was making fun of this womans voice, I only care if he is doing his job. No one cares if this country goes to you know where in a handbasket, so long as they know their politicians aren’t cheating on their wives or cracking jokes… I don’t know whose dumber, the pols or the constituents…
