Contact Rep. Shimsky to Stop Circuses in Westchester

From: Animal Defenders of Westchester (ADOW)
February 20, 2018 

Westchester County Exec George Latimer has informed us that legislator MaryJane Shimsky has agreed to write legislation banning circuses here.

After a lengthy discussion with Rep. Shimsky's aide in December (after her avoiding the topic for over a year), providing extensive circus information she requested - she responded by writing to the Hanneford Circus to ask them for 'their side' of this issue. A subsequent mtg with her garnered little support.

After being informed of her agreement, we spoke with her aide recently on the phone to confirm - and she couldn't have sounded more vague and disinterested about a time frame for pursuing this issue. Meanwhile at least two other circuses will be heading here in the spring/summer of 2018.

PLEASE CONTACT REP SHIMSKY and politely insist that she write a circus ban ASAP. It is nothing short of disgraceful that the board of legislators has totally ignored this subject for four + years, they are an embarrassment to Westchester.
