Vanderhoef Plans To Stay In Office For Full Term

The county executive denied rumors he will resign early.


While C. Scott Vanderhoef already announced he will not seek reelection next year, the current Rockland County executive won’t be going anywhere prior to his term ending.

Rumors in the county had started circulating that Vanderhoef would resign before his terms ends in December 2013, but he said Friday afternoon those rumors aren’t true.

“I’m planning at this point to carry out my term,” Vanderhoef said.

He added he’s not sure where the rumors are coming from.

“I don’t have any intentions or no plans to go anywhere,” he said.

Vanderhoef is currently in his 19th year as the county executive. This week, current Rockland County Legislators Ilan Schoenberger and Ed Day announced they will both run for the open county executive position.

If he really cared don't you think he would have shown it already? He has showered the good taxpayers of Rockland with more taxes as his legacy.

So so true. Just when you don't think he can do any more damage than he already has, he has another 13 months to top it off.

Totally agree with Ira - before him we never had this problem, and I am conservative. It is a disgrace what he has left our county in the mess it is in. He took a paycut - after he got a payraise - he still made sure he was making more than he did last year. Can't wait to get Ed Day there - except he will have such a hard job of fixing the mess Vanderhoef has created.

I keep watching this video and listening to his words. So basically he won't leave unless someone offers him an incredible amount of money. Am I the only one who is offended by that statement?
