Greenburgh upholds tradition on swearing-in ceremonyPosted: Updated:
In a tradition that has spanned more than three decades, Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner was sworn into office Tuesday at a school that holds special meaning to him.
Feiner was sworn into his 14th two-year term in office by Town Judge Delores Braithwaite at the New York School for the Deaf.
Feiner has been holding his swearing-in ceremony at the school since he was elected to the Westchester County Board of Legislators in the early 1980s. He ran unopposed in the general election last November for another term as town supervisor.
Two town councilmembers and the town clerk were also sworn in Tuesday.
School administrators say the swearing-in ceremony is a real-life civics lesson.
Another swearing-in ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday at the Bailey School.
New York School for the Deaf is the second-oldest deaf education program in the United States and the oldest in New York.
