Posted by: Gerald McKinstry – Posted in Uncategorized on Jan 09, 2012
Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino today announced the appointment of Jay T. Pisco as Commissioner of the Department of Public Works and Transportation.
The appointment follows the retirement of John J. Hsu.
Pisco, an engineer and executive manager with over 30 years of experience, has experience working on municipal and private projects in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Louisiana and Puerto Rico. He is a licensed engineer in five states and holds a Biomedical Engineering degree from Manhattan College and a Master’s in Computer Science from Iona College. His most recent position was vice president of BSG Engineering, Surveying & Landscape Architecture in White Plains.
“Jay’s deep background managing both the design and construction of projects will be a tremendous asset in evaluating and overseeing the county’s infrastructure, especially at a time when the challenges of delivering services and stretching tax dollars are so great,” Astorino said.
Pisco, 53, is the past president of the Board of Directors for the New York State Chapter of Solid Waste Association of North America. Prior to his position at BSG, Pisco served as a vice president of HDR Engineering, also in White Plains, and a mechanical engineer with the New York Power Authority and Burns and Roe, a global construction and engineering company based in New Jersey.

Jay is my father. The news articles are incorrect. He has a mechanical engineering degree from manhattan college. As I stated above the news articles cited this incorrectly. Biomedical bachelor degrees wouldn’t help much as Comissioner of public works and transportation. Thanks.

[JR: Humorously when I read this I though: "Maybe he could give CPR to taxpayers when they see the cost of 'public works'." As a little L libertarian I couldn't resist. However since the commenter seems to feel that setting the record straight, I do to.]
