New York State and Westchester County Republicans stood alongside Mount Pleasant Supervisor Joan Maybury Monday to ask for mandate relief to coincide with the 2 percent tax cap, enacted last year by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

A Pleasantville family hosted a ceremonial signing of the bill last June, promising to control municipal, county and school taxes in the state.

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, New York State Senator Greg Ball (R, C — Patterson), New York State Assemblyman Robert Castelli (R-Lewisboro), Westchester County Legislator Michael Smith (R — District 3) and Maybury said they believe government will be unsustainable if state mandates, such as pension, continue to be coupled with a tax cap.
