THOMAS 2016 - Summer Breeze LOGO series

This season boasts of electrifying, foot-tapping, finger-snapping music of jazz, gospel, hip-hop, reggae, “ole skool” R&B, “Italian Night”, “Caribbean Night” and so much more! The series launched on July 2nd with the excitement of smooth & sexy jazz tunes from Mount Vernon native son, Rocky Middleton, also the sassy sounds of the all-woman band, SAGE.

As the enthusiasm continues, so does the anticipation of Thursday, August 18th as Sam Taybron, who stems from Queens, NY will hit the stage in the greatest of ease … Taybron recently launched his sophomore cd entitled “Love Station”, which contains a plethora of “love songs” that warms the heart … to start the night.  Inter-nationally acclaimed recording artist and actor CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS then shares his captivating magic and turns “all-the-way-up”!  Williams is a native of Bronx, NY whose musical career scored the hits: “I’m Dreamin'”, from the New Jack City soundtrack that became a #1 single on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks charts; “Talk to Myself”, “Every Little Thing U Do”, “Promises, Promises” among many. His acting career include the film New Jack City where he portrayed the role of Kareem Akbar, and cameo appearances in New York Undercover and The Gunmen starring Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles. He has starred and co-starred in an array of successful off Broadway theatre productions: The Clean-Up Woman, A Good Man is Hard to Find, A House is Not a Home, Men Cry in the Dark … and the list goes on. Williams is the nephew of legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald. What a night THAT is going to be!! …

Storm Hardening Initiative

The City of Mount Vernon, in partnership with Con-Edison, is modernizing the electrical system throughout the City. This modernization and overall system upgrade are part of a Storm Hardening Initiative, meaning we are toughening our defenses against future storms.

The “Initiative” includes installing eighty-four (84) new and much stronger utility poles.
These new poles will employ smarter technology that minimizes outages while improving system reliability. Also, once up and running, the upgraded system provides additional power sources, so in the event of a power outage, the number of households without power will be decreased by at least 60%.

Work on installing the system will commence on Monday, May 16th, with an estimated duration of 4 to 6 months, depending on weather conditions.

For more information contact Con Ed Public Affairs at (914) 925 – 6361 or email them: WestchesterPA@coned.com.

Mayor Thomas’s administration will publish updates on this and the other uplifting projects it has planned to make Mount Vernon a great place to live and work.
