Chairman Doug Colety said, “I’m thrilled to announce our 2021 GOP slate for county offices. Our committee is ecstatic that Christine Sculti is jumping into the race for County Executive. If elected, Christine would be the first woman to ever serve in that position and is the first woman nominated by a major party to run for the office. Christine leads an exceptional slate of county candidates, all of whom are committed to restoring fiscal sanity and slamming the brakes on out-of-control taxes and spending from our one-party county government. She is ready to lead and has the qualifications and experience to be a great County Executive. Our party is committed to delivering a historic victory for Westchester.”

Christine Sculti said, “I am honored and humbled to be nominated for Westchester County Executive. I know the burden high taxes place on our families, seniors and businesses. If elected, my administration will be committed to returning common sense to county government. Policy priorities that are business-friendly will help to foster private-sector business opportunity, growth and job creation.”

Christine Sculti is a highly skilled professional with extensive experience in government and the private sector. As Chief Advisor to the County Executive, Christine was the highest-ranking woman in County Executive Robert P. Astorino’s administration, which cut taxes and kept spending flat for eight years.

She has also served as Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the Westchester County Taxi & Limousine Commission, as Assistant to the Mayor of Yonkers, spearheading a 1.5 billion dollar redevelopment project, and in economic development for New York State as Mid-Hudson Regional Director. She currently works as Executive Assistant to the Commissioner of the Westchester County Board of Elections.

As Vice President of a family-owned business and a corporate business development manager for an international business, Christine knows the importance of business-friendly policies that reduce regulations and keep taxes low in order that businesses can thrive and create jobs. She faced adversity when she was present for the bombing of the family’s satellite office at the World Trade Center in 1993. Her experience during that traumatic terrorist attack led her to embrace public service.

A Westchester resident since age four when her family moved to Hartsdale, Christine graduated from Fordham University. Dedicated to community service, she served on the Hudson River Valley
Greenway Board, Harrison Board of Assessors, Rye City Rotary Club, Yonkers Downtown Waterfront Development Corp. and the Mamaroneck Village Tree Committee. Currently, she is the Vice Chair of the Saint Pio Foundation.
