Herman Keith: Hudson Valley Hero

Thursday, December 27, 2007 -- Jason Taylor

Former Westchester County legislator and president of the Yonkers branch of the NAACP, Herman Keith has been a staunch ally in Scenic Hudson's campaign for waterfront development in this Westchester County city that provides additional opportunities for all residents to enjoy the river and Palisades views. A leader in decades-long efforts to create affordable housing throughout Yonkers, he's an outspoken advocate for providing more reasonably priced units in planned residential projects along the Hudson.

“For hundreds of years, the Hudson River has been open to everyone. Any development or redevelopment on the Yonkers waterfront must allow access to all of the city’s hard-working citizens.”
