YONKERS – Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano last week announced senior-level personnel changes in his Administration, including the re-appointment of Susan Gerry as Deputy Mayor. Gerry served as the first female Deputy Mayor in the City of Yonkers from 2012 to 2017.
“We are excited to welcome back someone of Sue’s caliber to City Hall. Her core background in government administration and management has served our residents well in the past,” said Mayor Spano. “As we continue our transformative renaissance in our City, I look forward to Sue’s partnership in spearheading many of our newest initiatives.”
“I believe Mayor Spano is succeeding with his vision for Yonkers,” said Deputy Mayor Gerry.
“I have seen the extraordinary progress made so far and I’m excited to be a part of advancing that progress.”
Gerry returns to the City of Yonkers from Westchester County Healthcare Corporation where she served as Senior Vice President. She obtained her Juris Doctorate from the University of San Diego School of Law and a Bachelor of Business Administration from George Washington University. During her tenure as Deputy Mayor, she was responsible for spearheading the City of Yonkers-Yonkers Board of Education Consolidation Program, a first-of-its-kind, large-scale merger of the administrative operations of two distinct municipal entities.
With Gerry’s appointment, Deputy Mayor Anthony Landi transitions to his new role as Interim Commissioner of Housing and Building, following the retirement of Commissioner Sam Borelli. Landi will facilitate the process of hiring a new commissioner for the department. Landi was appointed Deputy Mayor in 2021 and previously served as the City’s Parks, Recreation & Conservation Commissioner.
Mayor Spano added, “Sue and Tony have already made lasting contributions to our City’s legacy, playing critical roles in the revitalization of Yonkers. I am confident their knowledge and expertise will continue to make a positive impact on the quality of life of our residents.”
Mayor Spano’s appointees began their new roles on January 1, 2024.
