A fond send-off for Gary Warshauer


Every holiday season the town of Pound Ridge celebrates its employees and volunteers with a party, serving beer, wine and a vast assortment of food.

But this year the soiree was special, an opportunity for employees and others to bid farewell to many who have dedicated years to the community.

Mr. Warshauer presented certificates of appreciation to several Pound Ridgers retiring from service to the town, including the honorable Edward Hand, who served as town justice from 1974 to 2013. And it was ultimately Mr. Warshauer himself who was honored at the event as he leaves office as supervisor after serving in that role since 2004. Mr. Warshauer received a proclamation presented by supervisor elect Dick Lyman that gave a brief history of Mr. Warshauer’s service to the community. In January 1991, Mr. Warshauer was appointed to the planning board, and in March of 1992, he was elevated to the position of planning board chairman.

“The demonstration of his superior leadership skills led to his election to the town board as a councilman in November 1997,” Mr. Lyman read.

He was next appointed deputy town supervisor. Listed as one of Mr. Warshauer accomplishments during period time was the establishment of the town’s office of emergency management.

“Again in recognition of his superior leadership skills, he was elected to the position of town supervisor in November of 2003,” Mr. Lyman read. “His proactive stance related to environmental protections is manifest, and through his encouragement positioned his beloved town as a statewide leader in that regard.”

Recognition of Mr. Warshauer’s ability to lead earned him more election victories “contributing valuable initiatives too numerous to mention here.”

It was Mr. Warshauer’s “patience, unflappable coolness and unique style that led the town through some of the most trying economic circumstances in memory while still providing the taxpayers of the community with the services necessary in preserving their qualities of life and security.”

The proclamation went on to thank Mr. Warshauer for his service but made it clear that his service was not over: “Be it further resolved that neither the town board nor our residents have any intention of permitting town supervisor Warshauer’s complete retirement but rather have every intention of continuing his involvement in the community affairs for many years to come.”

Andrew Brodnick was given a certificate of appreciation for his dedicated service to the residents as a member of the town’s planning board from 1996-2013.

Mark Burkes, a 25-year veteran of the Pound Ridge Police Department was also acknowledged with a certificate.

Eugene Mauro was presented with a certificate of appreciation for his 15 years of service on the town’s recreation commission.

Peter Falco was awarded a proclamation for his dedicated service to the town as a member of the planning board, six of those years as planning board vice chairman. In February 2004, Mr. Falco was appointed to the town board to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Warshauer when Mr. Warshauer became supervisor. Mr. Falco had to run in a special election in November 2004 to keep his seat and then again in November 2005 when he ran and won a four-year term.

“During his 14 years as a planning board and town board member, he was instrumental in the establishment of environmental and fiscal policies and laws that have helped shape the physical characteristics and financial stability of the town,” the proclamation read.

Mr. Falco has lived in Pound Ridge with his wife Vivian for almost three decades, raising two children there. The town recognized Mr. Falco’s contributions as a Scout leader and “his dedication to maintaining the quality of life in Pound Ridge.”

Town attorney James Sullivan was also recognized for his service to the town. Mr. Sullivan was first appointed to the position of deputy town attorney in 1982 and served in that capacity until October 1985, when he was appointed to the position of town attorney by then-supervisor Peter Robohm. He was reappointed by supervisor Berry Gould and then again by supervisor Jim Trippe.

He was appointed a fourth time by supervisor Lucille Corda, then by Joy Simpkins and reappointed for the sixth time by Gary Warshauer.

Mr. Sullivan has lived in town his wife Jody for 40 years. They raised three children there. During his 28 years as town attorney, Mr. Sullivan served as a member of the town board of ethics and was a member of the board that governs the Slade Preserve.

“Now, therefore, be it resolved that the town board of the Town of Pound Ridge, on behalf of all the residents of Pound Ridge, does hereby congratulate James J. Sullivan on the occasion of his retirement extend our gratitude for his service to our community and wish him many more years of success ad good health,” Mr. Warshauer read.
