Since 1938, WMOA has united local government officials in an active countywide network. The WMOA provides a forum for its member municipalities to study issues of mutual concern and to take action on such issues that will have a beneficial effect upon the public safety, health and welfare of its members’ citizenry.


A Letter From Our President

Dear Members of the Westchester Municipal Officials Association,

It is with great pleasure that I prepare to take on the position of President of the Westchester Municipal Officials Association. I am looking forward to working with each of you over the course of my term. I have found WMOA to be a valuable forum in which to share ideas and discuss solutions to the many local issues that impact us all, regardless of the size of our municipality or where it is located within the County. Indeed, I strongly believe that we are united in interest regarding most of the major issues facing our communities. By working together, we strengthen our voice as we address these issues.
